I have been a long-time attendee of OpenStack Summit (since the days when it was split into a Developer Summit on Monday through Wednesday and a Business Summit and Conference on Thursday and Friday). Now the entire event is called the “OpenStack Summit” and developers, operators and business executives converge in one place to talk all things OpenStack. So far, Every six months the conference has grown – the most recent brought nearly 3,000 attendees together in Portland to talk about the future release of OpenStack, Havana, and to share their experiences with OpenStack to date. With this type of growth, it was only natural for the OpenStack Foundation to ensure there were multiple tracks so attendees can align themselves to the sessions and topics they care about most. Some of the tracks this year included:
Technology is often a lopsided business. Studies show that just 12 percent of the professionals in engineering are women.
At OpenStack Summit Portland, the team that authored OpenStack Operations Guide during a five-day book sprint earlier this year held a panel discussion to answer questions and receive feedback from the community.
When Open Compute Foundation’s COO Cole Crawford gave a presentation at the OpenStack Summit in San Diego six months ago, he asked how many people in the audience had heard of his project. Only three hands went up. Fast forward, six months later, in Portland, he asked the same question and most people raised their hands. Like OpenStack itself, Open Compute is gaining interest.
It’s not often one hears an intelligence agency talk shop, at least not in front of several thousand people at a public technology conference.
Where will OpenStack be in 2023? While we’re only three years into the OpenStack revolution, the record crowd at OpenStack Summit Portland cements that the community-driven open source cloud operating system is here to stay.

We’re in trouble. We’re facing an unprecedented shortage of IT talent in cloud, and in this case, specifically within OpenStack.
The second day of OpenStack Summit Portland put the spotlight on the users. Guest appearances by Best Buy, Comcast, HubSpot and others showed that OpenStack is in use and is working in customer environments.
It’s all about the users – that was the resounding message throughout OpenStack Summit Portland on Tuesday, as companies large and small shared their stories about how they leverage OpenStack.
