deployments in the world happen on top of an OpenStack infrastructure,
and hopefully some of those will talk about it in Boston.

I feel like you fall in the common trap of thinking that both
technologies are competing, while one is designed for infrastructure
providers and the other for application deployers. Sure, you can be a

discipline (and a lot of those shops, unsurprisingly, were present in
Berlin), but most companies have to offer a wider array of
infrastructure services for their developers. That's where OpenStack, an
