OpenCloudWeekend (OpenStack, Hadoop, Cloud Foundry)

This Saturday & Sunday - Join us for free workshops on OpenStack, Hadoop, Cloud Foundry. Plus participate in the hackathon on Sunday. Learn about Open Source Cloud Computing from the Experts!

Internap Flexible Cloud Hosting, the world’s first Public Cloud Computing Service built on OpenStack software, went live last week. This weekend, some of the open source experts who helped create OpenStack, plus others who helped build the Internap Cloud, are coming together to put on a first of its kind Open Source Cloud workshop. As a bonus, we've added a second day devoted to building applications on-top of Open Source Cloud software.

    Dave, were you able to capture any of the workshops? I hope the event had good turnout and went well.

    The morning of 1st day was chaos. We miss a speaker in the morning for Gluster. Otherwise, it was productive.

    You mean people still use puppet? I thought that was going the way of cfengine. *wink*

    Victor, the 'lessons learned' is a lightning talk. So expect bullet-points for that session! However, Mike and I will each be doing workshops. His on Compute and mine on Swift. I can't speak for Mike, but as part of the Swift session, we'll be focused on the nuts and bolts of Swift over any particular automation tool.

    Thanks, that would be awesome! Hope you can get permission.

    I'll bring my video camera, but I still need to get permission from the presenters.

    Will any of the Saturday OpenStack workshops will be recorded? Feeling very disappointed to be out of town this weekend.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
