Re: OpenStack User Group in Stockholm?


Hi Nico,
Go for it, start one up! We've had great fun being involved with the Australian User Group, meeting new people, doing presentations and just drinking and socialising and talking with people that are into OpenStack, all of it has been very rewarding. I did a presentation at the Folsom conference with the first part of it talking about our experiences with starting the group, you can see it on vimeo or download the slides at slideshare. There was also a panel that Stef organized with helpful discussion from User Groups from around the world, the links are below. If you need any help please ask!

My presentation, the first 10 mins or so are about our user group...
and the slides if you want to look at them separately:
and the community panel:

Subject: [Openstack-community] OpenStack User Group in Stockholm?
Hi all, 
I have been exploring and asking around since a while about the use of OpenStack
in Stockholm (or in Sweden in general, but since I'm based in Stockholm, this is the
area of interest) and it seems that there are some groups and scattered users.
I would like to find out if anyone has heard of ideas of starting a user group in Stockholm.
In case you have, please point me to the right contacts; 
In case you have not, are there any reasons to not start one? 
I have been working with Erlang (a niche language that grew into some nice projects lately) 
and the user group here in Stockholm proved to be quite a good spot for sharing ideas and 
experience outside of regular conferences. 
Thank you!
