Giles Sirett  A round up of CloudStack Collab 2013
The recent CloudStack Collaboration conference in Amsterdam  had nearly 100 sessions of amazing
CloudStack content.
Giles will give a summary of the best talks from the conference from the developer, user and
commercial tracks.

Donal Lafferty -  Developing hyper-V integration for CloudStack
For the last 12 months Donal has been working on developing Hyper-V integration for CloudStack.
Donal will talk through his development work to integrate "the last hypervisor", the lessons
learnt and the drivers behind this project.

Paul Angus - Using Ansible in a cloudstack environment.
Puppet and Chef have been become the dominant configuration management tools in most cloud
environments. Many people think Ansible now presents a much more sys-admin focussed alternative
to these established technologies. Paul will have a look at the use-cases for Ansible with
CloudStack  and walk some real-world  examples of using Ansible

Sebastien Goasguen -Hands-on contribution to the CloudStack documentation
Many people new to an open-source project find the idea of contributing code a daunting prospect.
However, keeping the product documentation up to date is just as valuable to the projects
long term success and is open for anybody to contribute to. Sebastien will give an overview
of the Cloudstack documentation,  and show just how easy it is for any user of Cloudstack
to contribute.
