Want to learn more about using Chef to deploy OpenStack and manage infrastructure on top of it, but not sure where to start? This in-depth, hands-on deployment session will cover the Chef and OpenStack ecosystem and how to get started with the Chef cookbooks in the StackForge repositories. We'll cover the current Grizzly OpenStack resources and the related cookbooks and content in the Chef community.

Topics covered will include:

* Deployment configuration and techniques

* StackForge repository code walkthrough

* Cookbook development and testing

* Deploying and managing infrastructure on OpenStack with the knife-openstack plugin

* Documentation

The session is intended for folks already familiar with Chef and interested in deploying OpenStack. This is intended to be a very interactive session with many questions and guided code and deployment walkthroughs. Attendees are expected to provide their own laptops capable of running a single-node OpenStack virtual machine.
