The Foundation had a great time meeting friends old and new as a Silver sponsor of this year’s Southern California Linux Expo in Los Angeles February 22-24.
We thank Christopher MacGown, Founder and Chief Scientist at Piston Cloud, whose standing-room-only, The Tao of OpenStack, talk was one of the hottest of the show. Thank you also to Community Hero, Stephon Striplin, from DreamHost and OpenStack LA User Group co-organizer, who helped staff our busy booth alongside Foundation Community Manager Stefano Maffulli and Event Planner Kathy Cacciatore.
One of our favorite activities was the in-booth happy hour with besties Opscode and Rackspace – 2 kegs of Sierra Nevada and 12 bowls of chips happily consumed! Check out the pics….
Here are the stats:
- Over 2,300 attendees, 100 exhibitors and 90 speakers
- 68 VIP badges scanned – Very Interested People of OpenStack cloud software
- 250 Free as in Beer, Speech & Love t-shirts, 200 pieces of collateral, 150 stickers and 200 OpenStack LA User Group handouts given away.
- Honorable mention for award for Favorite Clothing Item – our t-shirt came with the beer!
