CloudStack European User Group – July meeting
We’ve got some great speakers for our July meeting. The event will be 5 days after the end of the 2nd CloudStack Collab conference, so we’re hoping to bring a roundup of the highlights back from Silicon Valley. As always, there will be plenty of opportunity to speak to other CloudStack users, integrators and developers (and some time for a beer or two).
We’re hosting the July event at Sungard’s Paris Gardens office , as always beer and pizza will be laid on by ShapeBlue.
We will start promptly at 13:00 and be wrapped up by 17:00. Lunch will be provided.
