Meet at Fosdem 2019 !

It’s that period of the year again where we start preparing for Fosdem ! Even if preparing for FLOSSCon at the same time !! And this year, this will be my first Open Source Event since my illness last year. I tried to attend the Paris Open Source Summit 2018, but I made my travel request too late to be accepted internally, so I missed it (easy excuse to refuse, but my fault indeed). This time I made it early enough, but didn’t get support. I must confess this is disappointing, and it has been a long time since I missed an event due to that. But I’ll go anyway, paying myself the travel and hotel in Brussels, and of course, as a consequence, there will be no HPE logo on my slides.

Too bad as I’ll be speaking about Redfish, the new standard for a Software Defined Infrastructure, which is a topic important for HPE and our SDI approach. I’ll then pass more time covering python-redfish on which I’ve been able to restart the work recently.

I’m afraid it’s a tendency in large corporations, not dedicated to FLOSS as it also happened at Intel for another speaker. The risk that corporations take is that their voice is less heard in our communities and also that they’re much less trusted, and thus their speakers not chosen in the future, especially for such community oriented events.

Anyway, I’ll be there, and will meet also the Mageia community gathering over there and enjoy the many conferences of course.
