    Highlights of the weeks

      What people talk about when they talk about OpenStack Cloud

There’s enough going on in the OpenStack 
<http://www.mirantis.com/openstack-services/> ecosystem that you can 
pretty much find a comfortable niche drilling down on anything from 
hypervisor compatibility to driver support to who’s in the foundation. 
Mirantis’ David M. Fishman takes a step back and highlights recent 
conversations about OpenStack.

      *Welcome New Outreach Program for Women Interns

With a flurry of applications, we had a difficult decision in front of 
us, deciding who would be our newest mentored contributors through the 
GNOME Outreach Program for Women 
<https://live.gnome.org/OutreachProgramForWomen>. All the applicants 
were enthusiastic and personable, knowledgeable and technical. We’re 
pleased to announce that the decisions have been made and these three 
are going to work on OpenStack full-time from January to March. Please 
welcome Laura, Anita and Victoria to the OpenStack community.

      *Making sense of SDN with–and without–HW-based networking in
      OpenStack Cloud

There’s a tremendous amount of talk about the shift in the networking 
business from hardware-bound networking to Software Defined Network. 
Mirantis’ Greg Elkinbard gives an overview of SDN in OpenStack world.

      *OpenStack Board of Directors Talks: Episode 1 with Rob
      Hirschfeld, Principal Cloud Architect at Dell

market adoption and Dell’s engagement in the community. Rafael Knuth’s 
goal is to interview all 24 members of the OpenStack board, and will 
post these talks sequentially at Dell TechCenter.
