OpenStack St.Louis Meetup group was formed in the fall of 2014 and we had our first meetup in September. We receive great support from Cisco St.Louis group who have provided us with a venue and monthly meetup sponsorships. So far we have great guest speakers and amazing response from the local community. We are proud to have Rick Clark as our meetup group member. Rick is one of the original founders of OpenStack who was at Rackspace when it was found.
