OpenStack Summit Austin #PinotWithPino

Announcing our #PinotWithPino OpenStackSummit Austin Twitter Contest!

Here at Midokura, we are beyond excited for OpenStack Summit Austin (running April 25-28, 2016) – now just under a month away. No one does OpenStack like OpenStack Summit, with its informative and cool sessions and the awesomeness of the OpenStack community.

Since its debut in 2010, OpenStack has seen surging adoption across the globe by enterprise organizations of all sizes, including industries as diverse as automotive, finance and retail. Indeed, as time goes on, we’ve seen the community and past OpenStack Summits get bigger and more fun each year.

Austin will be no different which is why we’re happy to kick off Midokura’s own #PinotWithPino Twitter contest. The contest offers a chance for three lucky participants to win an exclusive Pinot wine tasting and enjoy delicious appetizers with industry influencer, top OpenStack expert and Midokura’s very own CTO Pino de Candia!

It’s easy to participate – just tell us why you love OpenStack in a fun or serious tweet, while tagging @midokura and #PinotWithPino, as well as following our @midokura Twitter account to stay in the know on all things Midokura.

Are you stumped on an entry? Here are a few examples to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Compute, storage & networking, oh my! Without these #OpenStack resources, my cloud would surely die! #PinotWithPino @midokura
  • #OpenStack is open, flexible, agile, and likes long walks on the beach. It’s the cloud platform of my dreams! #PinotWithPino @midokura
  • Roses are red, violets are blue, #OpenStack, what would I do without you!? (my job would be really hard) @midokura #PinotWithPino
  • Like a piece of chocolate, you never know what’s inside #OpenStack until you bite into it #PinotWithPino @midokura
  • The grand prize winners will be chosen based on quality of submissions. Ten secondary winners will be selected at random to win a $20 Starbucks giftcard – so the more you enter, the better your chances of winning! So tell us, why do you love OpenStack?

The contest kicks off today, March 28, and runs through April 15.
