The OpenStack (http://openstack.org/) Deploy hack-a-thon focuses on automation for deploying OpenStack Essex with Dell Crowbar (http://content.dell.com/us/en/gen/d/cloud-computing/crowbar-software-framework) and Opscode Chef. This is part of a day-long, world-wide event bringing together developers, operators, users, ecosystem vendors.
This track is for OpenStack Experts who are ready to 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.
Why now? We've validated our deployment against the latest release of OpenStack. Now it's time to reach out to the OpenStack and Crowbar communities for training, testing and collaborative development.
We'll be available online too! http://bit.ly/crowbarOSED
