OCP Engineering Workshop In Shanghai - September 15

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 · Posted by at 14:44 PM

The next OCP Engineering Workshop is in Shanghai on September 15!  This workshop will be a half day session in conjunction with the Cloud Connect conference.   We will have a general session address from Cole Crawford, COO of the Open Compute Project, and will focus on the OCP APAC charter and community.

Since we are part of the conference, registration will be different from our previous workshops.  In order to attend the workshop, you will need to register for either an All Access Pass or Workshop Pass with Cloud Connect.  I have a very limited number of discount codes available that I can give out.  Please contact me at for the discount code.

Register for the event here:

We hope to see you there!
