Managing the cloud with libcloud

A session at EuroPython 2011

Wednesday 22nd June, 2011

2:30pm to 3:30pm (CET)

libcloud is an open-source client library for interacting with different cloud providers.

The primary goal of the library is to abstract all the provider differences away and expose common functionality in a nice, clean and concise API.

This talk will address the following topics:

  • Why a library like this was built in the first place
  • Different problems we have encountered while building it (not all the providers always play nice)
  • An introduction to the library API (compute, storage and load-balancer part)
  • How to use it to build something useful and fun
  • How to participate and contribute
  • Roadmap and plans for the future
