Recap: Bay Area CloudStack Meetup February 20th, 2013
About two weeks ago, Animesh Chaturvedi (Citrix), John Kinsella (Stratosec), and I organized the first-ever CloudStack meetup for our newly established CloudStack SF Bay Area Users meetup group. We kicked off the night with delicious pizza (I hear) and chatted for a bit, made introductions and all ran over to the theater for the line-up of talks on Apache CloudStack. For more details on what the attendees were most curious about, please visit John Kinsella’s blog here: http://stratosec.co/blog/2013/recap-first-san-francisco-bay-area-cloudstack-meetup
