Spousetivities at OpenStack Summit in Austin

Long-time readers know that my wife, Crystal, has been running this thing called Spousetivities for a few (OK, eight) years now. While Spousetivities originally started out as a VMworld thing, it rapidly expanded, and this year Spousetivities will be at a number of events. That includes the spring OpenStack Summit in Austin, TX!

If you’re planning to attend the Summit in Austin, why not bring your spouse/fiancé/partner/significant other with you? I can tell you from personal experience that having him or her there with you makes the conference experience more pleasant. In this particular case, Austin is a great place to visit in April and it is very affordable. Besides, Spousetivities has a great set of activities planned to keep your traveling companion(s) entertained while you’re at the conference.

Here’s a quick look at some of what’s planned for that week:

  • Explore Austin via a unique scavenger hunt experience, complete with prizes
  • Cruise the lake on private, luxury paddle-wheel boat while enjoying a delicious catered lunch
  • BBQ galore—after all, this is the BBQ capital and Spousetivities will make sure you get to try the famous BBQ of the Salt Lick
  • Quaint and relaxing tour of historic Fredericksburg

On the Spousetivities site, Crystal has more details on the activities. You can sign up for any (or all!) of the activities via the registration page. If you haven’t registered already, go register for the OpenStack Summit now and sign your significant other, spouse, family, or friends traveling with you for Spousetivities. They are sure to have a great time, and you are sure to gain a wealth of information from the Summit.

I’ll be at the Summit, so I hope to see you in Austin!
