It is nearly here, the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, October 24-28. As always, the agenda is packed with great sessions, including in depth tutorials and hands on workshops. I have installed the mobile app and started building out my schedule. With so many great sessions from which to choose, it is hard to find time for everything. With that in mind, I have something that may be a big help to you, a consolidated listing of the sessions offered by Cisco and DevNet.

Hopefully this helps you identify and prioritize the sessions that are most important to you. Worst case, if you get double booked and miss something, we will pull together the slides and recordings from all of these sessions so you can catch what you missed or relive a session that was particularly helpful. You can access sessions from previous OpenStack Summits and several other past events within the Videos page of our OpenStack site within Cisco DevNet. We put this site together to help you keep abreast of Cisco's involvement with OpenStack that may be of interest to you, including our contributions to OpenStack and how we use OpenStack within our products and solutions, plus easy access to plugins and drivers, developer related resources and events, and more.

Travel safe and see you in Barcelona!
