OpenStack Summit Paris Proposals Galore! Make Your Voice Heard

We’ve been pretty busy over here at Mirantis, and it shows in the number of people who’ve submitted proposals for the upcoming OpenStack summit in Paris.  (Did the location of the summit have something to do with it?  Nah…)  To make it easier, we’ve separated proposals by tracks so you can vote on the proposals you’re interested in.

You must be a member of the OpenStack Foundation, but registration is free, so if you haven’t joined yet, you can register here.

Remember, the summits are about what you want to see. Voting closes at 11:59 CDT on August 6, so now is the time to make your voice heard!
