The excitement over the OpenStack Essex release is building! While my team has been making plans around the upcoming design summit in SF, there is more immediate action afoot.
Tomorrow (3/1), numerous sites are gathering around a World Wide Essex Hack Day on 3/1. If you want to participate or even host a hack venue, get on the list and IRC channel (details).
My team at Dell is organizing a community a follow-up OpenStack Essex Install Day next week (3/8) in both Austin and Boston. Just like the Hack Day, the install fest will focus on Essex release code with both online and local presence. Unlike the Hack Day, our focus will be on deployments. For the Dell team, that means working on the Essex deployment for Crowbar. We’re still working on a schedule and partner list so stay tuned. I’m trying to webcast Crowbar & OpenStack training sessions during the install day.
The hack day will close with the regularly scheduled 3/8 OpenStack Austin Meetup (6:30pm at Austin TechRanch). The topic for the meetup will be, …. wait for it …., the Essex Release. Thanks go to HP and Dell for sponsoring!
It’s important to note that Anne Gentle is also coordinating an OpenStack Essex Doc Day on 3/6.
