I wanted to update everyone about some upcoming events we are organising for the Australian OpenStack User Group.
Brisbane June 26 – Meetup
We’re holding a meetup in Brissy on June 26th, at a venue yet to be determined. I’m looking for assistance in picking a venue up there, a pub will be fine but preferably one where we can meet and chat without getting blasted by music etc, and where they have food, and most importantly, where we can throw on a bar tab! Please get in contact with us if you want to help us select a location, help organize the event or sponsor in any way.
Sydney June 28 – Aptira EOFY bash and AOSUG Meetup
On June 28, we’re going back to the Harbour View Hotel in the Rocks in Sydney for an End Of Financial Year bash. Those that came to AOSUG’s first Sydney meet back in December last year will remember the Harbour View fondly I’m sure. It had great drinks, great food and it kicked off the Aussie meets in spectacular fashion! The meet will be a social gathering, just an informal get together for us to meet and chat and drink and eat.
Perth July 16 – Meetup
We’re planning to hold a meetup in Perth July 16, at a venue yet to be determined. Once again I’m looking for assistance in picking a venue. Like Brisbane, a pub will be fine but preferably one where we can meet and chat without getting blasted by music, and where they have food, and most importantly, where we can throw on a bar tab! Please get in contact with me directly if you want to help us select a location, help organize the event or sponsor in any way.
Adelaide August 28 – Meetup
In conjunction with SAGE-AU and many thanks to Robert Mibus for the invitation, we’re inviting South Australian OzStackers to join the regular Adelaide chapter of SAGE-AU’s monthly meeting in Adelaide on August 28. I’m planning to ask one of the OpenStack project tech leads or luminaries to participate by way of beaming them in via WebEx or other (as we’ve done in Sydney and Melbourne recently) to present a talk on their involvement with OpenStack. Numbers for this event are limited so if you’re an SA OzStacker please jump onto http://aosug.openstack.org.au and RSVP to reserve your spot.
OpenStack APEC Conference (OSAC) – August 11-12, Beijing and Shanghai
Hosted by the China OpenStack User Group (COUG) and the Chinese Software Developer Network (CSDN), a massive event is being organised to be held simultaneously in Beijing and Shanghai. This event is shaping up to be the biggest OpenStack event ever, with 1000+ guests expected for Beijing, and 600+ guests expected for Shanghai, with live streaming to link the 2 conference sites. I am very excited about this event, I’ll be attending and if anyone else is looking to go please get in touch with me! I’ll post the event web site to AOSUG once it goes live in the coming days.
Anyway that’s all from me for now, hope you all have a great Friday. At Aptira we have a “no-changes” policy on all infrastructure every Friday so we can be sure to make Friday arvo drinks and have an easy weekend.
