OpenStack has shattered adoption benchmarks set by previous open source projects and gained acceptance as the de facto standard for open source public and private clouds. As the global demand for OpenStack expertise increases, employers are finding it difficult to recruit talent, which is slowing down the ability for organizations to adopt and implement OpenStack and supporting tools and services. For the community and the project to continue to flourish, an effort must be made not only to focus on creating the next wave of OpenStack experts, but to enable application developers to build and deploy on the plethora of public and private OpenStack clouds coming in the next few years.

As a follow-up to last year's successful OpenStack Careers Panel, come join Rackspace Cloud Evangelista Niki Acosta, as she shares her thoughts on the OpenStack talent gap and what the community must do-- short term and long term-- to accelerate adoption and usage of OpenStack-powered public and private clouds.
