Subject Re: [GSoC] Congratulations and Wrap up
Date Thu, 17 Oct 2013 17:03:47 GMT
Thank you Sebastien and Abhi along with the Cloudstack Community for making
this opportunity possible.
It was a very interesting and educational experience.

I hope to keep up work with you guys. I will be a bit quieter on here due
to college work over the next few months.

Looking forward to meeting you guys in Amsterdam! :-)
