As you know, the community of OpenNebula is an important pillar for the project. Opennebula community through the distribution lists and forums can express their questions, requests, or contribute with new ideas to the developers. This information is very useful and can contribute by helping other users or develop new features.
However, OpenNebula project thought in User Groups too. The OpenNebula User Groups are local communities, where users can discuss or share information and experiences in a more direct way across ‘town’. Getting a closer diffusion, and joining people who want to collaborate with the project.
Also, remember that this year (2015) the Opennebula annual conference travels from Berlin to Barcelona, the ‘smartcity’ that will be the meeting point where developers, users, administrators, researchers, … can share experiences, case studies, etc.
For these reasons, some cloudadmins of Barcelona area have decided to create the Barcelona OpenNebula User Group. This group aims to be a small-scale community where we can discuss and find common objectives that support the project. We have created a website and a Google group where we will inform about first steps and work together in common goals.
In addition, and inside ONEBCN usergroup official presentations tour we will be next 5th of May on sudoers, a sysadmins group that meets regularly at the North Campus of the UPC.
It is a totally open group, so you are welcome!
