Hello Ed, nice to see you here! :wave:


Hi Ed, great to have you with us! Always a pleasure to see another member of the open-source community joining.

There’s an interesting exchange about favorite industry events in another section.

I’m very interested in hearing about any and all open-source events as Ampere AI is looking to establish closer ties with the community, something that’s only natural given some of the characteristics of our software.


Welcome Ed. When you have a moment, could you post on how people can get access to a AArch64 bare metal server from Equinix?
