Doing exciting work with open source cloud, containers, virtualization, or other interesting technologies? Want to show it off to other folks in the FOSS community from around the world? Then don't miss these opportunities to get the word out about your work! Clouds, Containers, and Orchestration Miniconf is consistently a fantastic event. Year after year it delivers a great selection of talks and miniconferences. This year I'm running the Clouds, Containers, and Orchestration miniconf, and looking for presentations by November 25th. Here's the short synopsis:

"Software-defined everything," DevOps, and cloud are driving open source further and faster than we might have imagined possible just a decade ago. Most recently, Docker containers and orchestration have opened up all kinds of new opportunities to develop, deploy, and manage software from the developer's desktop well into production.
