Introduction to OpenStack HEAT : DevOpsPro 2016

OpenStack HEAT is a flexible and extensible orchestration tool which allows you to use your OpenStack IaaS to repeatably deploy clusters of servers, networks, services, and other infrastructure.


The entire presentation, all dependencies, and source are available at Github.

All the files you need are listed below.

Please look at the VMWare page and get your VMWare based OpenStack up and running to be ready for the workshop.

If you don't have a laptop with the pre-requisites, that's OK. I will be pacing the workshop so that you can follow along. The laptop and VM is not mandatory, and I will be doing live demo deployments throughout the demo.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can email me at:


Please also see Pre-requisites to see if your hardware is sufficient for the lessons. You don't have to run them live, I'll be pacing things so that you can just observe and learn.
