CloudStack Developer On-Ramp
Since the announcement earlier this month, we've been flooded with requests from folks who indicate that they want to contribute to CloudStack, and in an effort to get them rapidly up to speed with the architecture and general 'lay of the land' we've assembled this event to get folks up to speed as rapidly as possible. We know this is short notice, but if you are interested in developing for CloudStack or integrating with CloudStack, we've set this time aside to have hands-on session with a large number of CloudStack's existing developers and architects. This event is free to attend, but you must register here (for food allocation) and that will require that you have an account on this site. If you have problems, please don't hesitate to email david cloudstack org.
