Some personal news around OpenStack

2015/07/26

I’m trying to be more and more involved around OpenStack, as much as my time allows me of course.

So some recent news about that:

1/ I’m now a member of the Franch OpenStack Association Board and really proud to be listed alongside real long time contributors and advocates of the project.

2/ I’ve become an ATC during the Liberty cycle due to a modest contribution on Ironic. But it gives me the possibility to attend the Tokyo Summit !

3/ I’ve contributed to 3 proposals of talks for the upcoming Tokyo OpenStack Summit: the first one on the work we do to add support for Redfish in Ironic. The second is on a new project called Alexandria which we would like to see becoming an OpenStack project in the future and which is a CMDBaaS solution. Early stage but pretty neat ! And finally, we want to expose our view around a Software Defined Infrastructure with OpenStack.

If you think that any of these 3 presentations is worth listening during the upcoming Tokyo Summit, then vote for us before the 30th of July !!

I’d like to share other thoughts on the big tent and the community, but that will be for a next article.

Back to RMLL 5 years after !

I like that event which is organized by different teams each year and gather thousands of enthusiasts during one week in one city to celebrate Open Source and Free Software.

This year, for the first time since 2010, I have no conflict attending it and also attending the Academy of sacred Music in Etampes, the week after, as I do since the first one.

So this year I’ll give a status of where we are with the MondoRescue project for my tenth anniversary of project leadership and after the last presentation I did 5 years ago.

And as you can’t be in the mood without docker, I’ll deliver a session on docker and project-builder to demonstrate its particular value IMHO in this domain of continuous packaging and also I’ll animate a Lab session on docker to help discover this tool and understand the challenge of containerizing an application such as owncloud. Come prepared with at least a Linux VM or better a Linux laptop to enjoy the tour 🙂 And start by downloading the Lab document based on Ubuntu 14.04 !

And don’t hesitate to come and talk of whatever topic I’d be able to cover such as AFUL, Mageia, OpenStack, Redfish and Ironic or the beauty of Jean Mouton’s music during the reign of François the first (not our current pope ;-))
