Friday was the day for OpenStack Ops Meetup - a community event, also hosted by Deutsche Telekom in Berlin, Pascalstrasse 11
This event was overbooked. We started planning with around 20 participants, after the first announcement we had 37 paid registrations. So we tried to change the meeting room in Winterfeldtstrasse, which was not possible. Then I had Pascalstrasse as a backup with a 50 persons room, which fits also not the 57 interests in the meantime. After the room preparation I got 81 seats for 70 registrations. 62 people showed up - 59 participants and 3 orga.
We had enough space, options for 4 additional breakout rooms (which was not used), sponsored breakfast, sponsored lunch, merchandisings and I brought enough of my own things like cups, milk, sugar. Everything so that the participants feel comfortable and they lack nothing. It was a very successful and fun event, which ended at the Paulaner in the Spreebogen. That was the end of the OpenStack week.
