In addition to our "regular" meetup in July, join us to celebrate the 4th Birthday of OpenStack. Drinks and giveaways sponsored by the OpenStack Foundation, of course, and we will have some "special" activities to mark the occasion!

For the "regular" session we have John Devereaux of Mirantis joining us to provide another round of introductory coverage on OpenStack. Mirantis will do a walk thru of OpenStack for those with little to no experience. Join us if you want to understand the purpose of OpenStack and its ecosystem, as well as if you want to learn more about the OpenStack architecture.

With all the newcomers to our meetup - Kamesh and I asure this will be a popular night! So tell your friends and colleagues and get ready to sing Happy Birthday to OpenStack!!!
