This article was last updated 8 years ago.

September is fast approaching giving us a ‘back-to-school’ feeling. No time to spare, we’ve been focused on securing new partners for Juju, planning the upcoming Juju Charmer Summit as well as our popular Ubuntu OpenStack Fundamentals Training course. We will be attending many events around the globe, demoing our Cloud solutions – come have a look if you’re around! Read all about what’s new and exciting on the cloud front.


Ubuntu OpenStack Fundamentals Training

New training courses have been announced! The Ubuntu OpenStack Fundamentals Training course is an intensive 3-day, hands-on classroom-based course of lectures and lab work, taking place in various cities around the world.  The course has been designed by the experts in our Cloud Engineering team to be the best introduction for setting up and running Ubuntu OpenStack clouds. The next available training courses will be in Amsterdam and Washington, D.C.! Book your seat today!

Still undecided? Here are five reasons to learn OpenStack.


Juju Charmer Summit

17 – 18 September, Washington, DC

This two day summit is an opportunity for devops to learn how to distribute their software through the Juju Charm Store. Over two dozen charm experts from Canonical and the Juju Community will be on hand to deliver training, discuss best practices, and give attendees hands-on peer instruction on deploying to multiple public clouds, bare metal and OpenStack.
