50% CUG discount on the European Cloudstack Collaboration conference

Our good friends over at the European Cloudstack Usergroup have offered UKCUG members a whopping 50% discount on the registration fee for the forthcoming European Apache Cloudstack conference in Amsterdam.

Full details below:

I would like to invite your members to attend the European Apache CloudStack Collaboration Conference, 20-22 November 2013. With two very successful events in the United States, we are pleased to bring this event to Amsterdam. Located in the centre of Amsterdam, the Beurs van Berlage will provide a fantastic venue to host this event.

UKCUG Members qualify for a 50% discount on the conference entry. Please use the code CCC_LOVES_CLOUDSTACK when registering.

The European CloudStack conference will continue with the best ideas from the previous conferences and feature a varied set of presentations and learning opportunities. Aimed at users, developers and everybody else interested in cloudstack, this will be the place to learn more about cloudstack or join the developers to discuss the past, present and future.

Day 1 includes a free ShapeBlue Bootcamp training course and other free workshops in many related technologies.

Collaboration is key to keep our community vibrant and growing. A lot of the talks and events at the conference will provide ample opportunity to meet with the cloudstack community and engage in deep discussions with developers and users.
As always, there will also be a chance to relax with, and get to know, fellow delegates

I think you’ll find it a great environment to learn more about Cloudstack, to hear about the exciting work going on in the project currently and to meet others with an interest in this technology space. The conference will include developer, user and business tracks, a hack-day and also the chance to do some hands-on training on CloudStack.
