      Hi Selva,

      (this reply is not advertisement, marketing or spam) :-)

      We can help with Openstack learning. We're planning to demo a full openstack (scripted) install during the next openstack meet in chennai. Also, we are trying to build a cloud based learning platform and have openstack cloud in the backend for the same. If you want to contribute, please drop a mail to rajagopalan@edcellence.in. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
