Join Us at the O’Reilly Open Source Convention 2009

We will be at the O’Reilly OSCON Open Source Convention 2009 in San Jose, California this week, July 20-24th, at the San Jose Convention Center. In it’s 11th year, OSCON is bringing together “over 3,000 experts, visionaries, and hackers in the trenches to explore all that open source has to offer.”

Our very own Erik Carlin will be speaking about the “Power of Cloud API’s” and will be joined by Alex Polvi from Cloudkick and Michael Mayo ( Both Alex and Michael have utilized our API which was released last week. Cloudkick, as mentioned in a previous post, now supports The Rackspace Cloud and Michael Mayo developed an iPhone app that helps you manage Cloud servers and Cloud files in your Rackspace Cloud account.

If you are going to be in the Bay Area, you should catch us at the conference. In addition to the presentation, Erik will also be announcing…stay tuned for details….(we can’t give it away yet!).  Here are the details of the presentation:

Before leaving in 2016, Angela ran integrated marketing campaigns for Rackspace. She started in 2003 and did everything from Linux support, account management, sales, product marketing and marketing. She left Rackspace in 2005 to work for PEER 1 Hosting but returned in 2009 because she was interested in the cloud computing movement. Angela is a strong believer in the power of storytelling.
