## Chip Childers to Keynote the CloudStack Collaboration
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:
