THIS EVENT IS CONFIRMED!
We have booked the Austin TechRanch a whole day of Essex Deploy Madness!
The first week around the Essex-4 milestone is shaping up to be exciting! Folks from around the world, literally (see here) are getting together to bug fix and deploy Openstack.
For our meetup, we've collected together bug-squashing firepower from Dell (Austin, Boston, Silicon Valley and India), Rackspace, Mirantis, Canonical, Nicira and more to get together online, and collaborate on this.
A quick-and-dirty resource page has the details for the virtual part.
We've setup a Skype channel (send "Essex" to DellCrowbar to join) to coordinate the event.
