Apache CloudStack (ACS) is one of the best-of-breed in the current IaaS landscape. However, despite its high functional quality, its technical quality (the one you observe when you look "under the hood") is bellow industry average. Miguel Ferreira was initiated in ACS development in the early days of 2014 and presents, in this talk, his perspective, as a newcomer, on how it felt to him like he was working on a skyscraper in the early days of the XX century, without safety-net, nor rope.

Miguel proposes that the ACS community take charge of keeping to the highest standards in software technical quality, while continuing to foster creativity.
