Hi all,

We´re having a couple more meetups for the Australian OpenStack User Group this month.

First is in Hobart on Friday 17th August the day before PyCon and is a day event, 9.30 to 3.30.

This is a meetup for developers and system administrators who want to start actively spinning up and deploying OpenStack virtual machines as part of their day to day jobs. This event will take the form of a `code dojo´ which means everyone will actively participate during the day. The dojo is based on the idea that there is a computer in the middle of the room that everyone takes a turn on to try and solve the problems that the Sensei proposes. The specific problems that the two dojo's Senseis will be addressing are the use of configuration deployment management software for creating, managing and versioning virtual machines for OpenStack.
