This is a supplement for the OpenStack Essex Deploy Day page.

Newbies should have some familiarity with OpenStack - you don't need to be an OpenStack user or developer, but should be familiar with cloud computing and OpenStack concepts and terminology to get the most out of this event. We will review things, but it will not be a deep dive into OpenStack - we will focus on deploying OpenStack.
By expert, we mean people ready to provide testing, feedback, and help with specific barclamps. Experts should already have deployed OpenStack in some form or another. It's better if they have used Crowbar, and are familiar with DevOps and Chef. It's ideal if they already have a Crowbar development environment set up.
Before the event, make sure you have:
If you want to install Crowbar and deploy Openstack on your own system during the hack sessions, it is possible to set up Crowbar and an OpenStack deployment using multiple virtual machines.
To do this, you will need a system or laptop with:
Crowbar provides all the necessary pieces to deploy openstack without any downloads, and we will have iso's ready to go on the day of the event.
Experts who intent to hack on crowbar should set up a crowbar build environment before deploy day, since it takes takes time do download everything, and do the initial build.
