OpenStack for Enterprise/App Developers: Should they care?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

OpenStack has experienced a phenomenal growth, but, can it make the leap from 10s of thousands of community members to 10s of millions? Many large software ecosystems that have thrived recently have been powered by developers. So far, enterprise/app developers have remained largely in the periphery as far as OpenStack is concerned although there are serveral use cases like SDLC, Big Data, PaaS atop OpenStack, Hybrid cloud development, etc. that is aimed squarely at developers. Perhaps, IaaS will never be interesting to developers? Can some of the newer initiatives (like Heat) change this?

Should OpenStack appeal to enterprise/app developers? Attend this panel to hear different perspectives as to why and how we can all make this happen. Please be armed with the tough questions and opinions of what does OpenStack mean to enterprise developers. These stackers have worked with large ecosystem of developers in their past lives and represent different parts of the OpenStack ecosystem. More than anything they are not hesitant to speak their mind and so should you.
