Travel Support Program/Juno

OpenStack Travel Support Program - Juno edition

The OpenStack Foundation brought 21 people to Atlanta for the Summit in May, thanks to the grants offered by the Travel Support Program, sponsored by VMware. We had 21 people accepted in the program from 8 countries and all around the world. Five people traveled from India, seven from Europe, three from Africa and the rest were from North America and South-East Asia. Of the selected recipients, two were unable to attend due to VISA timing issues, but we were excited to welcome the 21 attendees who were able to make the trip.
