About this event

The OpenStack Deploy hack-a-thon focuses on automation for deploying OpenStack Essex with Dell Crowbar and Opscode Chef. This is a day-long, world-wide event bringing together developers, operators, users, ecosystem vendors and the open source cloud curious.

The Deploy day will offer two individual parallel tracks for Newbies and Experts:

Newbies will learn the basics of OpenStack, Crowbar and DevOps and how they can benefit your organization. We'll also have time for ecosystem vendors to discuss how they are leveraging OpenStack.

Experts will take a deep dive into new features of OpenStack Essex and Crowbar, and learn how Crowbar works under the hood, which will enable them to extend the product using Crowbar Barclamps.

This is an all day event in multiple timezones - the Silicon Valley Cloud Center is one of our physical locations where developers can congregate, but you can also join online.  We will be at the Cloud Center all day - if you just want to drop in for a while, check the main event schedule so you can arrive in time for the topics you are interested in.

See for the full details on this event, including the schedule and homework assignments. That page is being updated as new locations and details are available.
