Great idea, I'd be happy to volunteer for leading a session on the TripleO
Heat template model, heat debugging and perhaps some other topics.

Yeah, I like the Q+A format idea - I've done some slide based discussions
like this and I think a more interactive session (perhaps with some screen
sharing to hack on live examples and walk through code) would be helpful.

Perhaps we should start an etherpad where folks can put their ideas for topics?

I created https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/tripleo-deep-dive-topics but let
me know if you had another location in mind.

We could even broaden the scope so folks either request deep-dive on a
particular topic,  or a live session on "how do I integrate $foo" and we
could hack on some patches live, talking through the process then push the
result to gerrit.

+1, sounds good, thanks!
