Subject RE: Anyone interested in a one day event in Bangalore?
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 03:25:02 GMT
Hi Nick,

We have already announced the event on the Meetup page: http://www.meetup.com/CloudStack-Bangalore-Group/events/104410272/

Around 27 people signed up so far, and once we announce the venue I am pretty sure that the
number will go up. We have observed this pattern with the Meetups.

We have also tried to reach out to the Hadoop and Cassandra organizers. However, we have not
yet heard from them.  We shall try to contact them, again.

Hyderabad CloudStack members who are also part of Hadoop, have already announced on the Hadoop
Meetup page.

Now, it is only the matter of venue, and for which I copied the CloudStack leadership on a
different thread because I thought they have the right contact to help us find a convenient

We shall sort out the venue part today and mail you with details.

Thank You

Given that we're aiming to do something in only about 4 weeks time, and we ideally want to
announce the date + venue by Thursday, don't let perfect get in the way of good enough!

All being well, this'll be the first event of several. Being the first, and given the short
lead time, we won't have as many people as future events may come to have. So, we don't necessarily
need a huge space somewhere amazing, especially not if sorting that out will take too long.

You guys are the ones on the ground, who know Bangalore, know the venues, know the tech scene,
so you'll need to be the ones to decide. Ideally we want to announce before the end of ApacheCon,
so I suspect what we can arrange quickly and will host the kind of numbers we expect is going
to win out as the best option!
