Still it was a packed room at the ZHAW Lagerstrasse building in Zürich.  Continue reading

The event of the year – chez TMB

I can confidently speak here on behalf of all, the feeling is mutual!

blog2

Last Friday, 17th July 2015, we celebrated the 5th b’day of OpenStack , with the OpenStack Switzerland User Group members. Like previous years, the party took place in the beautiful location next to the lake Zürich. We organised the party at a lakeside restaurant and our guests were delighted by lovely weather, great ambiance and food from the grill. There were no presentations scheduled, the members chose to have an evening of catching up with their friends from the community. Since we see each other every few months, there are several old faces, and its always great to see them again! Following are some of the pictures from the day. The OpenStack Switzerland User Group extends its thanks to the OpenStack Foundation for their contribution to help us make this a very enjoyable evening.
