This session will provide a rare opportunity to meet with a number of the Cidner developers including Core team members.  We'll spend some time letting each panel member provide a brief intro to themeselves, why the contribute to OpenStack and Cinder, as well as share their vision for OpenStack and Cinder.

More importantly we'll provide a true "ask the experts" Q/A session, giving the audience an opportunity for members of the Operator community in the audience to share ideas and ask questions about Cinder as it is currently.
