## Chip Childers to Keynote the CloudStack Collaboration Conference

Chip Childers, Vice President of Apache CloudStack at the Apache Software Foundation, will
be kicking off the conference with "State of the Project: Apache CloudStack in 2013".  In
this talk, he will highlight success stories from around the community, describe the scope
of our software's impact in the industry, and share his thoughts on the project's future direction;
setting the stage for the conference, and year, to come.

In case you missed it, Gene Kim will be speaking on day one of the conference, with a new
talk called "Why We Need DevOps Now: A Fourteen Year Study of High Performing IT Organizations."
He will also be taking time to sign copies of The Phoenix Project for attendees. It's the
one book on DevOps that you should read about this year, it's The Phoenix Project by Gene
Kim, Kevin Behr, and George Spafford. (A limited supply of the book will be given out free
to folks who have registered for the conference, so you'll want to register before supplies
run out!). To view Gene Kim's keynote: [2]
