Calico visits the land of the Longhorns

Next week sees the OpenStack community continue its world tour as the biannual OpenStack Summit descends on Austin TX which, as well as being home to the Texas University Longhorns, is also home to North America’s largest urban bat population!

Keeping up the tenuous animal based theme, the Project Calico fluffy cats will be out in force at the summit on our marketplace booth – stop by booth C13 and tweet out a picture to win a cat. Many of the Calico team will also be on hand to answer questions and meet the community.

In addition to finding us on our booth, you should also be able to catch at least one of us speaking on Thursday afternoon:

Sadly if you want to see both Chris and Neil, you’ll have to run around the convention center as, in their wisdom, the organising committee have managed to schedule both their sessions at exactly the same time (2:20 on Thursday). However, if you can’t be in two places at once, but would like to meet up for a chat with Neil, Christopher or any of the team, then either find us in the marketplace or get in touch in our #openstack channel on slack (go to if you need an invite).
