Re: Cloudstack Collab Canada anyone?

1) Work on the website and docs to make Cloudstack look more attractive for people looking for a cloud orchestration solution.
- clear description of what it does
- clearly identify target environments - company datacentres, cloud service providers, software development teams, etc. - clear identification of benefits for each target as opposed to other solutions
- add customer testimonials from each of the target markets.

2) cleanup roadmap, remove wrong and contradictory information

3) use social media to direct people to the new information.

The team has done a great job in getting a strong presence in the presentations

4) put out a regular stream of messaging about each of the presentations in social media. There are some local Montreal groups on social media. I will try to add to the list.

- https://www.meetup.com/cities/ca/qc/montr%C3%A9al/tech/

Perhaps we should develop a list of "important" social media venues and regularly share important news on them.

All good to hear - looking forward to seeing you all

Whilst we're on this subject, I thought I would chime in with this:

This will be the second year that we've co-located Cloudstack Collaboration Conference with Apachecon. Last year (Miami) was really successful: great agenda, great talks, really well organised. However, our attendance was down compared with all previous CloudStack Collaboration Conferences.

IMO, this was down to the fact that, previously, we had always promoted CCC from within the community as it was "our" event. However, last year, I think we all sat back a little and expected Apachecon folks to do that.

A lot of work has gone in to putting a great agenda together again (http://ca.cloudstackcollab.org/#schedule)

I see  that many people on this list will already be coming (or considering coming)  either specifically for Cloudstack collab or to attend the broader apachecon talks,  but it would be really great if we can get the attendance up from last year.

So, if everybody could help us a little, it would be very much apprecited

Some specific call outs:
1. please share on social media (look for @cloudstack @ApacheCon). Share your talk, share others talk, share the conference generally
2. If you're in this community, please make every effort to try and come. These conferences really are great for ideas, sharing problems, learning, working together, etc
3. Bring others: if you're coming, bring a colleague, bring a customer, bring a partner (Montreal is a great City)

Any other ideas?

Kind regards

Hi all,

I was wondering who would be going to Apache CloudStack Collab conference
of 2018 on September 24-26th, Montreal, Canada?

I know it's still early, but if you know, we could (a bit later i.e.
beginning of September) organise some beer sessions or so, after the
official presentation hours are done, catch up, team spirit buildup and
