Greg DeKoenigsberg of Eucalyptus Systems is going to speak to us this month. Being he's VP of Product and Community at Eucalyptus, he's naturally speaking to us on Eucalyptus.

The details of his talk:

An introduction to Eucalyptus and Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is the dominant public cloud provider, and more developers are moving to AWS all the time. Eucalyptus provides the only open source private cloud that is compatible with AWS. We'll show you how easy it is to set up your own AWS-compatible private cloud, and we'll discuss why API compatibility is so crucially important to a hybrid cloud strategy.

Greg DeKoenigsberg is the Vice President of Product and Community for Eucalyptus Systems, Inc., where he leads both the product direction and the company relationship with the broader open source community. Greg brings to Eucalyptus over a decade of open source advocacy and community leadership, with the majority of this time spent building and leading communities for open source leader Red Hat. While at Red Hat, Greg served in various community leadership roles, including senior community architect, leader of the Fedora project, chair of the first Fedora Project Board, and Red Hat community liaison with the One Laptop Per Child project.

We're at WebAssign this month. The usual policies apply. Doors open at 6:45pm. Pizza is being provided by TEKSystems. I unfortunately won't be present due to travel, but Nathan Walls will be leading things, along with the other co-organizers.

I hope you can make it out and enjoy Greg's talk.
