Your Passport to OpenStack Success: Play #OSUnlocked

Jodi Smith - April 22, 2016
To celebrate five years of OpenStack releases and our community, we’ve designed stickers for each release of OpenStack—from Austin all the way through Ocata. At the OpenStack Summit in Austin, where it all began, we have plenty of stickers—and some choice swag— to give away.

The #OSUnlocked game works like this: earn points, collect swag. To start, visit the Mirantis booth (A41) to pick up a passport and your first sticker (and point). Use the passport as a guide.
For each Mirantis partner you visit, you can collect a sticker. Each partner has a unique sticker; supplies are limited. For each sticker, you’ll get a point, and you can unlock extra points via social media challenges. Redeem your points at the Mirantis booth.
Collect 6 points, earn a hat
Collect 10 points, earn a RUN MOS t-shirt (redeem on Wednesday)
Collect 16 points, and choose from:
  • An “OpenStack in Action” book
  • A high quality flask
  • AND you will be entered to win a free OpenStack certification by Mirantis Training!
