See You in San Antonio for Texas Linuxfest

TXLF Badge transparent 240There’s a lot to look forward to this week at Texas Linux Fest 2012, being held August 3rd and 4th at the San Antonio Norris Conference Center. (Apparently the name is not a tribute to Chuck Norris. Go figure.)

Friday, TXLF will host a number of longer events like a track on monitoring with Zenoss, a Chef Hackathon, and Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions.

Saturday, there’s a full program of talks on topics like Hadoop as a Data Platform, Continuous Deployment, and using Gluster to build a software-based NAS.

What would a LinuxFest be without a little CloudStack action? Luckily, we won’t have to find out. From 4:20 to 5:05, I’ll be giving a talk on How to Create Your Own Cloud. I’ll cover the basics of CloudStack, what it is, and how you can get started with a very basic setup. You too can run an IaaS cloud in your own living room! (Or in a slightly larger configuration, if you prefer…)

We’ll also have a CloudStack booth in the expo hall on Saturday, and David Nalley and I will be on hand to answer questions and show off the CloudStack UI in all its glory.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to register and join us at Texas Linux Fest this weekend. See you in Texas!
