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.
