Upcoming 2009 CloudCamps

David Marshall over at VMblog has written an nice overview of our CloudCamps. When I came up with the idea for CloudCamp last May (2008), I had no idea that it would grow to be come the phenomenon that it has.

In David's post he says "
If you haven't jumped into the water yet, what are you waiting for? At least educate yourself. VMworld is proof that admins are arming themselves with knowledge -- the conference has grown at a tremendous rate over the last few years. But that's VMware and virtualization, and perhaps you believe you have a handle on that already. So what about the cloud? Are you there yet? Need more information? It sounds like that's where CloudCamp comes in... though I get flashbacks to the 80's and SpaceCamp references when I think about the name. ;)"

I'd like to thank our CloudCamp co-founders Dave Nielsen (CloudCamp Manager), Jesse Silver (Sun), Sam Charrington (Appistry), Sara Dornsife (Sun) for all their hard work over the last 6 months. With events planned on 5 continents, now is the time to get involved and start your very own local event. Get in touch and we'll help you get moving. We've also setup a mailing list if you'd like to keep up to date.
