We are the only of the few official OpenStack user groups globally. Users, operators, developers and vendors are all welcome, and we host monthly meetups with a varied schedule of talks and discussion sessions on a wide variety of OpenStack related topics. You can find out more about OpenStack at https://www.openstack.org/ and about the user groups programme at https://groups.openstack.org/ . We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting! If you're interested in speaking at our group, or in sponsoring one of our meetings, then please reach out to our organisers (http://www.meetup.com/Manchester-OpenStack-Meetup/members/?op=leaders).
