Those open source folks over at OpenStack seem to know how to keep conferences light.

If you're not familiar with why this is funny, then refer to the website Funny or Die and check out Galifianakis's recurring series of short "Between Two Ferns" videos. The sketch gained wide popularity when President Obama was featured on the show. It's pretty dry humor, but it's funny.
While the real Galifianakis didn't show up at the OpenStack summit, the bit is still pretty good. And now OpenStack has its own version of Between Two Ferns.
