This original version of the OpenStack cookbook was built using the Essex release of OpenStack. The 2nd Edition was developed for Grizzly. The latest – the 3rd Edition – was developed using the Juno release of OpenStack and updated before release to include Kilo.


All of the code and commands used in the book can be found
on GitHub in the following repositories:

* All examples
* DevOps Integrated Cloud Build

–version juno | kilo

The current print release of the book is based on OpenStack Juno with Kilo included also. We always ensure the code that accompanies the book always has the latest version of OpenStack so you can refer to the book on how to do things, and get the latest syntax and configuration from the book’s GitHub.
