Moving up the Stack at the CloudStack SF Bay Area Users Meetup
Last night, the CloudStack Bay Area SF Users Group held a meetup in San Jose, CA at Datapipe. Thank you to Gary Veselka and Datapipe for hosting our group and providing pizza and drinks to keep the CloudStackers going throughout the evening!
John Kinsella kicked off the night with a quick introduction and reminder about the CloudStack Collaboration Conference Europe held in Budapest, Hungary on November 19-21st, 2014. The CfP deadline is June 25th, 2014 so submit your talk today! ApacheCon Europe will be co-located with the CloudStack Collaboration Conference from November 17-21st, 2014.
Our guest speaker, Amogh Vasekar, presented "Moving up the Stack with Stacktician." What is Stacktician? As Amogh put it, "CloudFormation for CloudStack." It is a web interface for template and stack management. Amogh demonstrated the working of the tool and discussed some of the challenges faced while executing pure CloudFormation templates.

On behalf of the organizers (John Kinsella, Animesh Chaturvedi, Ilya Musayef and myself), we want to thank Datapipe for hosting the CloudStack SF Bay Area Users Group and providing a spacious venue for the CloudStackers.
