I am on my way home from San Jose writing this final event recap blog in the clouds…
Thanks again to approximately 480 enthusiastic OpenStack community members for an amazing 4 days of interactive and productive sessions, meetings, and demonstrations. The community continues to accelerate forward at a rapid pace in a highly collaborative environment with so many great ideas on such a variety of topics that it truly is becoming difficult to keep track of all the innovation. I look forward to once again working with the global community on our next event the first week of October 2011 and plan to announce its location in a few weeks. It is going to be tough to outdo this great event but I am confident that our community will rally together again to show the world how open source should be done.
If you took any pictures at the event please be sure to upload to the OpenStack Flickr account at http://www.flickr.com/groups/1574695@N22/. I am sending out a post-event survey to all attendees on Monday so please take a few moments to complete the survey. The questions will be easy to answer and your feedback is valuable as the event team and I are able to tweak future events to better serve the community.

Finally, I am not posting a Community Weekly Blog or Developer Activity Blog post this week as the last 4 blog recaps have already hit the weeks highlights. I did update the weekly statistics available at http://wiki.openstack.org/WeeklyNewsletter?action=AttachFile&do=view&target=2011+Data+Tracking+%28Excel%29.
