On July 23nd of this year it will be exactly 5 years from the initial project announcement on the Cloudkick blog.
We are going to celebrate this great milestone with a cake and drinks and we would like to invite you to join us. The celebration will take place in a nice bar during the EuroPython week in Berlin, Germany.
Celebration will be attended by Libcloud developers so this is also a great opportunity for you to meet and hang with us in real-life and ask any questions you might have about the project.
For more information, exact location and RSVP, please refer to the Eventbrite page. Keep in mind that RSVP is mandatory if you want to attend the celebration.

During that week multiple presentations about Libcloud took place. In this post I'm including links to the slides of some of those presentations:
- Apache Libcloud by Sebastien Goasguen - Sebastien had a great introductory presentation about Libcloud. His presentation also included a great demo of using Libcloud's deploy_node functionality to deploy a Worpdress blog on Exoscale.
- Mobile, multi-cloud management on top of libcloud by Dimitris Moraitis - Dimitris presented how they utilize Libcloud at mist.io.
Sebastien delivering his talk.
I was also supposed to deliver a presentation about Libcloud's history, evolution and lessons learned, but due to severe tonsillitis which has been strecthing for over 3 weeks, I sadly had to cancel my talk.
Libcloud 0.14.0 was released last month. Among many improvements and new features, this release also includes a brand new driver for Ikoula public cloud which is based on the generic CloudStack driver.
Folks over at Ikoula wrote a short introductory post about this new driver. The post is in French, so if you speak French and are interested in using Ikoula driver, you should check it out - Utilisation d'Apache-Libcloud au sein du Cloud Ikoula.
