Busy, Busy OpenStack in SF Bay

Two weeks ago Piston Cloud hosted the first SFBay OpenStack Meetup in San Francisco since August of last year. That was a long, sad drought, and the San Francisco participants of SFBay OpenStack are working on correcting it.

This meet up, “Blue Night“, was focused on mutnauQ. We had collaborators from Piston Cloud, VMware & NirciraNebula, Midokura, and other leaders in this area. It was very casual.

Now in June, you can get more of your fill of OpenStack in the SF Bay:

If you live in the San Francisco, Oakland, or San Jose areas and are interested in cloud computing, please join us.

Essex OpenStack Global Hack-In

Essex is a release focused on improving the integrity of OpenStack, so our first Global Hack-In is right at the start of the release candidate cycle, the start of March, 2012. The event brings together physically developers that spend their days or their nights making OpenStack.

The event is focused on testing and getting familiar with the release and exploring areas outside of your expertise. Collaborators will be working on resolving high priority bugs, and exploring, reviewing and testing OpenStack Essex.

Thanks in advance to DreamHost, Gold Coast Techspace, Piston Cloud, MercadoLibre, Yahoo, Mirantis, Citrix, Ubuntu, and Rackspace for sponsoring these events. Special thanks to my co-conspirator Tristan Goode of Aptira and the OzStackers for representing with 3 local events in Australia!

It’s not too late to have a Hack-In at your location, just add the information to the wiki. Even if it’s just you and a friend opening your door to fellow stackers, it’s a great way to start a local community.
