A Trio of Build a Cloud Days!

Lots of activities coming up soon with PuppetConf, Ohio LinuxFest 2012 and CloudCon Expo and Conference between September 26th and October 3rd. In and around all that, we also have several must-see Build a Cloud Days (BACD) on the docket, with plenty of talks that will be of interest to folks working with Apache CloudStack, or any IaaS and PaaS clouds. Oh, and did I mention that these are free to attend?

The idea of BACDs is to help inform people about the tools and best practices around deploying their own IaaS and PaaS, and to get some of the most experienced practicioners in the field to share their knowledge and be available for questions about their projects or products. 

If you've never been to a BACD, then you should sign up and find out what you're missing. If you have been, then you should take the opportunity to show up for a second round! Most of the time, the slate of talks will be different from the previous events, because we work with a wide group of experts on cloud computing rather than the same set of talks at each event. Here's what's coming up soon:

We have a fantastic slate of speakers at each event. We’ll have folks from ActiveState, BitNami, Canonical, Citrix, EnStratus, InkTank, Red Hat, Scalr, and more!

Clear your schedule and sign up today – you don’t want to miss all the fantastic talks we have lined up!
