Meet at the Open Source Summit EMEA

2019/08/29

I’m very happy to have been selected once more for the upcoming Open Source Summit Europe in Lyon (YES for the first time in France !!) from the 28th to the 30st of October 2019.

I will only deliver there 1 session this year (which was well attended at the Open Source Summit in San Diego by 25 attendees) :

  • A hands-on lab on Docker which really explain what it means to containerize a web-based app.

And thanks to SUSE’s help, we (HPE) will be able again to replay the Redfish Workshop we gave as well in the Open Source Summit in San Diego. More details will be shared on this next week.

If you happen to be around, as usual feel free to come to my seessions and discuss with me of any topic you’d like, hopefully I’ll be able to bring some ideas in the discussion and make it enjoyable if not useful. So see you soon in Lyon !

Presentations from OSS San Diego

2019/08/23

My work as a speaker is now over for the Open Source Summit San Diego.

You can find the presentations made for the Redfish Workshop I organized there on the Workshop page. If you want a summary, you can try to look at the presentation I made during the event which is now available on slideshare.

Also available, the last version of the Docker Hands-on Lab that I delivered yesterday.

I’ve also been choosen as a speaker for OSS EMEA, so I’ll announce next week what I’ll do there (teasing ;-))

RHEL/CentOS users: help test MondoRescue

2019/08/20

Yes, like me the project is not dead ! I’ve been able to successfully backup/restore with the last MondoRescue test version I made for RHEL/CentOS 7. As this was a long standing issue I had with this, I’d like to see whether other users who have had issues with either 3.2.2 or the beta of 3.3. So please report on our mailing-list your findings with this (and share success, but also issues).

Even if other distros may still not fully work, I’ll publish that version if I don’t get too many negative feedback, if only to show there is still work on that project !

That should be early next week, when I’m back from the OSS NA 2019, where I’m presenting, and organizing tomorrow the first Redfish Workshop ! Don’t hesitate to come if you’re in San Diego, Room Sapphire P, 4th floor of the Hilton Bayfront.
