OpenStack meetups in Austin and Boston!
Just a quick heads up on some OpenStack meet ups coming your way…
This Tuesday, Nov 29, Dell (the company I work for), along with Fidelity, will be sponsoring an OpenStack meetup in BOSTON at 6pm at the Lexington Depot.
Hear from folks actively deploying (or getting close to) on OpenStack clouds.
Partly presentation and mostly discussion (and obviously pizza). 🙂
Sessions should cover the core new features in Diablo: Keystone and Dashboard, as well as deployment strategies (and will touch on Dell’s own Crowbar). Each topic will have a presentation followed by open Q & A.
Time is also reserved for an unconference so come armed with some topics
Meet and eat at 6, then get to cloud stuff at 6:30, and plan to end around 9pm.

Last month, my team at Dell hosted the first ever OpenStack meetup in Austin with a great showing of the cloud community in the city. We’re now at over 100 members on the MeetUp, and we want to keep the goodness going.
We’ll be back at the Tech Ranch on Thu, December 8 to have our second Austin OpenStack meetup where the topic (based on last time’s feedback) will be deployment, and a myriad of other topics.
This time around Rackspace will be joining us and sponsoring the food and refreshments for the night.
You can join the group and get details on the Austin meet up at http://www.meetup.com/Openstack-Austin/
Same deal – when you come, take a few pics and tweet with #OSATX.
What city’s next?
A number of the attendees of the last Austin meetup actually traveled in from a number of nearby cities, so if you’re so inclined, start an OpenStack meetup in your area!
Feel free to drop me a line or catch me at the next meet up if you’re interested in learning how we got started.
See you at the next meet up!
Until next time,
