Polls are open – OpenStack Summit 2016, Austin

“Keep Austin Weird” evolved from a kicky slogan into a mainstream cultural movement,  giving the city a sense of individuality. Austin will be playing host to the next OpenStack Summit in April 2016.

Meanwhile, Midokura has blossomed into a global innovator in software network virtualization since open sourcing. It’s time to support our mission to take Austin by storm.
