Leveraging OpenStack Swift - San Francisco CA Workshop Day
Wednesday, September 4, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
By popular demand, this event is the first in a series to bring a full day of OpenStack Swift technical training and discussion to cities across the USA. Users, contributing vendors, and well-known members of the community will get together to share experiences and actually experience the latest capabilities of the technology.
This is a hands-on workshop where we will install & configure an OpenStack Swift cluster using SwiftStack, as well as write code. Attendees should each bring their own laptops to participate in the workshop. Throughout the day and after the workshop there will be time for networking with the speakers and attendees.
Share this event with your friends, or better yet bring a friend who would benefit from a hands-on technical day like this!
