OpenCloudWeekend Nov 5th-6th, 2011

OpenCloudWeekend is a new type of event. Its is a workshop, hackathon & unconference all wrapped into one.

With the rapid change occurring in the open source cloud community, we need a place where we can meet to share our experiences, challenges and identify solutions. At OpenCloudWeekend, you will have the choice to attend some training, but are also encouraged to share your thoughts in several open discussions, as we strive for the advancement of the Open Cloud. Developers, IT professionals, entrepreneurs, users and vendors are all encouraged to participate.
