  • April 17, 2014 · 9:00 AM

If you run an OpenStack User Group (or contemplate to start your own local group) and if you want to talk to folks who bootstrapped groups from zero up to a couple thousand members: Join us! Here are a few topics we will discuss:

• How to start & grow an OpenStack User Group?

• How to handle & deal with vendor engagement?

• How grow the OpenStack user & developer base?

Boris Renski, OpenStack User Group Bay Area
Erwan Gallen, OpenStack User Group Paris
Marton Kiss & Gergely Szalay OpenStack User Group Budapest & CEE
Alessandro Vozza, OpenStack User Group Amsterdam

    good take-away points. I have already reached out for "expert" speakers to join us for our first meetup. I will put together a tentative calendar for future meetups to share and get consensus on.

    Thanks for everyone's time and sharing attitude.

      I dont think this is the sort of trademark abuse we need to go after.

      The form comment showed up here. I was attempting to privately point it out. It not the biggest deal, but since I'm working on the trademark stuff, kinda hard not to point out.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
