OpenStack Essex Deploy Day

The OpenStack Deploy hack-a-thon focuses on automation for deploying OpenStack Essex with Dell Crowbar and Opscode Chef. This is a day-long, world-wide event bringing together developers, operators, users, ecosystem vendors and the open source cloud curious.

The Deploy day will offer two individual parallel tracks for Newbies and Experts:

Newbies will learn the basics of OpenStack, Crowbar and DevOps and how they can benefit your organization. We'll also have time for ecosystem vendors to discuss how they are leveraging OpenStack.

Experts will take a deep dive into new features of OpenStack Essex and Crowbar, and learn how Crowbar works under the hood, which will enable them to extend the product using Crowbar Barclamps.

This is an all day event in multiple timezones - the Silicon Valley Cloud Center is one of our physical locations where developers can congregate, but you can also join online.  We will be at the Cloud Center all day - if you just want to drop in for a while, check the main event schedule so you can arrive in time for the topics you are interested in.

See http://bit.ly/crowbarOSED for the full details on this event, including the schedule and homework assignments. That page is being updated as new locations and details are available.

    The YouTube audio is fine on my end. The only slides I have the the intro ones from Dell, but the videos cover all the presentations.

    Not sure how many of you set up dodai deploy in openstack before, but it's not an easy thing to live demo. How many of you can virtualize a multi-node implementation of openstack under virtualization and PXE boot node stacks within the laptop microcloud environment based on proposals? We saw a live demo of it, so Dell can do it too [:

    Great Day! Very interesting and well organized. A lot of information given about Crowbar, what it is, demos, and opportunity to chat on IRC with experts as you try things on.

    Charu, that will be sufficient, but wait before downloading that ISO - it's getting another spin this afternoon.

    I am developing a few new barclamps for prototype. I am planning to Install the new Essex ISO posted by Rob on crowbar.zehicle.com before the meetup. Is that going to be sufficient.
