I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that participated in our first "unconference" / "user group" / "meetup". Despite some initial demo woes (Mason Sanders I am already signed up for Open Shift), the event went great!! Everyone was able to get out, network a bit, learn some new stuff, and eat some awesome pizza. Personally, I'm excited to try this again in another venue, and jlevi & I started talking about if we could do one of these in New York. If you are interested, please let me know!

 

There are some people that were instrumental in making this event happen & deserve a special shout out!

Definitely Chuck for Marc. He helped with the initial brainstorming of the idea and encouraged the larger Fidelity team to participate.

Without Mason, the unconference would have been at a Panera Bread. THANKS!!! for arranging all the facilities at Redhat. It was fantastic & hopefully the first of many.

 

Props to Jad Talbert: Beer!

I owe Jad at least one beer for all his efforts with the unconference. That said, he owes the rest of us some of Carolina's finest beverage. Seems like fair, no?
