Subject Re: speaker request - intro cloudstack talk in the bay area

So they’re open for 2/23, and are flexible on time. I’ll sync up with Tim off-list. If
timing doesn’t work or something, will bring it back here.

What might be nice is to have a library of talks that we can give as necessary. I know a bunch
of us have slide decks from various talks, would be nice to standardize/centralize!

ContainerWorld Feb 23rd. Could potentially make something align around that and reduce costs

about various topics - I saw mention this morning of an OpenStack presentation, needled them
about a CloudStack talk, and was told if I had a speaker they were more than game.

is at Holberton’s space in downtown San Francisco. Topic would be the standard “what is
cloudstack” type talk, or I’ve always been a fan of getting a room of folks to get devcloud/similar
up on their laptops.
