Join us for a free 2015 oVirt (http://www.ovirt.org/) Asia workshop at FOSSASIA in Singapore with star technologist Brian Proffitt (http://www.proffitt.org/). This 3 hour workshop is designed to teach us about oVirt, learn what we can do with oVirt virtualization, encourage collaboration in our community, lay the foundation for best practices in oVirt use, and help answer questions about the project from both a developer and user's perspective. We look forward to seeing you!
