    Thank you, it was a nice session indeed. Dave: can you publish your docker and haproxy salt formulas also if possible? I have a Rackspace account and want to try the same things to enhance my knowledge.

    Rats. I am not going to be able to go. Any chance of video/slides? I wonder if John Yi will be talking about the new Rackspace Devops offering? Also I see Dave has a great twitter feed, , tantalizingly Retweeted "Friends don't let friends get container sprawl. @thatch45 talks tomorrow abt image & config mgmt at #TexasLinuxFest " which seems to have been an all-demo talk so no details,

    Interested to know about Rackspace's DevOps Automation, as well as SaltStack. Might be beneficial for my upcoming project.

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow night. I will most likely be the freshest"Spring-Chicken"­ as I just started learning about Cloud Computing and SaltStack. I may not have much to add to the conversation; but will absorb as much info as I possibly can. :) Thank you for opening this up to the Technology Enthusiasts' in the area.

    A question and a note :) 1.SaltStackDetail is not a package, right? So that is a typo? ;
    2.Note, It looks like HP may also be deploying OpenStack using SaltStack, per OSCON 2014 - O'Reilly Conferences, July 20 - 24, 2014, Portland, OR
