I was fortunate enough to be asked to give the opening keynote to the OpenStack Seattle Days 2016 conference. These types of events are mini-conferences put on in partnership with the local OpenStack user group. The user group gets tickets at a discount that is subsidized by the vendor sponsorships. We generally follow the user group rules of focusing on community works, not selling a product with our talks. This is my second year attending this event in Seattle put on by Sriram Subramanian. Excellent food, entertaining talks, and a great venue. I will definitely come back again. Read more at http://www.openstackseattle.com/, http://www.meetup.com/OpenStack-Seattle/events/232134301/.
