To prove that collaboration is about action and not talk, Jesse Andrews, Jim Curry and myself approached the Facebook team after the event and said “hey! lend us some of these servers and we’ll take them to our office in San Francisco and have OpenStack running on them tonight!”. Something that might have taken months to arrange was now in motion in a matter of hours! A couple of videos of our secret plan in action:
