Subject Re: ApacheCon Austin keynotes (and other stuff)
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2015 10:48:28 GMT
Austin is the home of the Texas Advanced Computing Center, which at times has the largest high
performance computing cluster.

https://www.tacc.utexas.edu

I have lost touch with them a bit, but could rekindle a connection. They have tons of cool
stuff to show and use open source a lot.

An idea that comes to mind is:

https://www.tacc.utexas.edu/about/directory/kelly-gaither

She is quite good, and would have lots of cool stuff to show. Though I don't know how open
source what she does is.

cost, and if you know something I don't, tell me now before I buy someone plane tickets.
