It’s become tough for me to go back and find links to talks I’ve given at past OpenStack summits and conferences so I’m making this page as an index that I can point people at. So here they all are in chronological order. A quick note, if you hear us talking about things like CI process and the talk is old, there’s likely to be significant improvements since then.
