Lots of CloudStack Goodness Next Week at OSCON!

It's OSCON time once again - and there's lots of CloudStack and related activities going on next week at OSCON you don't want to miss out on. 

On Tuesday, we have two tutorials of interest. In the morning, Lars Kurth is going to be doing a Xen tutorial from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If you're using Xen with CloudStack, or thinking about it, you'll probably want to catch that.

Tuesday afternoon, we have a CloudStack tutorial from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Both tutorials are in E141 in the Oregon Convention Center.

We're also participating in Apache's mini-BarCamp from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in room E142 (so, just next door to the tutorials). 

The OSCON folks are also opening the Exhibit Hall from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and we'll have the CloudStack booth up and running - so come by and say hello! We'll be doing demos, answering questions, and handing out swag. The hall is open Wednesday and Thursday as well during the day, and during the "booth crawl" on Wednesday evening. 

Poker Party

The do-not-miss event, though, is the Poker Party on Thursday night starting at 9 p.m. We'll be giving out prizes for the top 3 players of the night (top prize is a System76 laptop, and runners up will receive Galaxy Nexus phones) plus a prize (Acer Iconia Tab) for the player that knocks out Sarah Novotny. (That's assuming someone beats Sarah, which I'm not entirely convinced will happen - but we'll see.) A number of FOSS projects are going to be hosting tables at the poker party, and we'll be playing with Fedora-branded playing cards! You might even get to take home a pack of your very own...

There's a limit of 300 players, so make sure to arrive early and claim your space. 

The best part of OSCON, of course, is the "hallway track." If you're going to be at OSCON, drop me a comment or give me a shout on Twitter (I'm @jzb) - If you're working on or with CloudStack, or interested in learing more, we'd love to catch up and help any way we can. See you at OSCON!
