Activités prochaines sur Grenoble

2020/01/29

J’ai souvent partagé ici mes activités à des événements autour du Logiciel Libre effectués de part le monde. Dans les deux prochains mois, mes activités seront beaucoup plus locales.

Jeudi 30 Janvier, je participerai à la journée à la Journée Open Innovation Minalogic/HPE organisée à la CCI Grenoble. J’y serai un point de contact pour les personnes souhaitant discuter des Logiciels Libres dans tous leurs aspects (Gouvernance, Stratégie d’adoption, Modèles commerciaux, Licences, Gestion de communautés, Briques technologiques, …)

Plus tard en mars, dans le cadre du festival Transfo 2020, outre la µFLOSSCon déjà annoncée ici qui aura lieu le 16 mars à partir de 18h00 chez CGI à Grenoble, qui présentera dans un grand meetup divers aspects du libre dans des formats courts de 30′ maximum, je serai cette année aussi en charge du HPE DAY du 17 mars, le but étant de faire aussi bien que l’an passé. Vous pourrez avoir plus de détails dès l’ouverture du festival… ce jour ! Nous y parlerons entre autres choses de ce que fait HPE pour la planète au travers de solutions, effort de soutenabilité, engagement pour la chaire 3IA travaillant sur l’écosystème alpin, etc.

Une fois ceci fait, il sera temps de se consacrer davantage à la FLOSSCon 2020, qui est toujours en cours de définition (lieux, formats, dates). Mais qui sera bien sûr l’agglomération grenobloise. Les années d’élections municipales rendent plus difficile la possibilité d’obtenir un soutien de municipalité donc nous recherchons toujours un lieu capable de nous héberger si possible 3 jours.

Attending Fosdem 2020

2020/01/25

Well, after trying to speak again at FOSDEM 2020, and despite not being retained as a speaker, I’ll anyway attend this year’s FOSDEM as this is one of the best FLOSS Events on the planet and because that’s where you can meet with so many luminaries. And the food is also very good in Brussels, so I can’t wait for the 2 dinners I’ll pass with friends over there 😉 (ok, lunches are generally sandwishes based !)

Can’t say for once, meet you there, as it’s pretty difficult to find someone with so many devrooms or booths (maybe you’ll find me at the tracim one, as there is no Mageia one) at the same time, but that’s also why we like it.

And as I’m going on my own, without company support, you may find me more in the python room (to continue to learn on it) or stuff like CI/CD, containers, … or more probably talking with people 😉

CfP pour la µFLOSSCon 2020

2020/01/14

Bonjour,

Je suis d’abord ravi de vous souhaiter une année 2020 pleine de libertés numériques.

Et pour fêter cela, l’association FLOSSITA a le plaisir de vous annoncer la µFLOSSCon 2020 !

Quaesaquo ? Eh bien, c’est une FLOSSCon miniature, donnée lors du festival Transfo 2020, le 16 mars 2020, de 18h00 à 20h00 dans les locaux de CGI.

L’appel à conférenciers est donc officiellement lancé ; vous avez jusqu’au 29 février (profitons-en, ce n’est pas tous les ans qu’on peut le faire) pour soumettre un sujet (15′ ou 30′ selon votre loquacité) pour
parler de votre sujet favori lié au libre. Le programme retenu sera publié le 1 Mars et vous pourrez alors vous inscrire pour y participer. Faites passer le message (pour parler ou assister)

Je profite de ce message pour rappeler que FLOSSITA a décidé d’organiser une FLOSSCon complète en 2020 pour laquelle nous cherchons toujours un lieu d’accueil.

Do not meet at the POSS

2019/12/08

Well, the french national railroad has sent to me an SMS explaining that my train to travel to Paris for the POSS was cancelled due to the current strikes. And more over, there is no other train allowing me to be there, so I won’t be able to participate this year again, and wonder how will the event deal with that as I’m sure I’m not alone in that case 😦 Too bad and hopefully see you another time.

Meet at the Paris Open Source Summit

2019/12/03

After some years, I’m back again at the Paris Open Source Summit ! Well it’s becoming more and more difficult for me to travel professionnaly, even in France, and without the help of Jean-Marc Le Hen, I’d not have been able to come. So thank him by buying HPE gears with him 😉

I’ll be delivering a session on Redfish during the Cloud Native Infrastructure Track on Tuesday the 10th between 6:00 and 6:30PM and I’ll come back the day after to contribute to a round table on neutrality of contribution spaces animated by Amel Charleux during the Governance track on Wednesday the 11th between 11:00 and 11:59AM.

A great opportunity to touch base with the whole community gathered in the exhibition hall (I hope to be able to visit both the projects area as well as the professional booths)

If you catch me, I’ll be happy to discuss about FLOSS in general, or my favorites projects in particular !

Presentations from the Redfish Workshop in Lyon

2019/11/20

You can find the presentations made for the Redfish Workshop I organized in Lyon after the last Open Source Summit on the Workshop page. You’ll find there an updated status of the standard (2019.3) made by Jeff Autor compared to the version delivered in San Diego. Also you’ll find the level of adoption of Redfish by the OpenBMC project. As well, there is an interesting use case shared by Julien Niedergang from SUSE that wasn’t presented in San Diego.

If you managed an event and want to integrate that workshop in it, don’t hesitate to contact me so we can replay it.

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

The Europe Redfish Workshop Agenda is now available

2019/10/13

Time is flying, and the Workshop is like winter, coming ! We now have the agenda available so you should be even more keen to attend that free event in Lyon the 31st of october !!

Let’s meet over there !

The Redfish Workshop is at the end of this month in Lyon, France

2019/10/01

As announced earlier, at the end of this month, in Lyon, just after the 3 days dedicated to the Open Source Summit Europe, HPE and SUSE will host the 31st of october a reprise of the Redfish Workshop already organized during the Open Source Summit in San Diego in August.

It has also now been announced on the HPE Dev portal which should lead to more audience, especially as I can now announce that in addition to Jeff Autor, co-chair of the Redfish Forum, who will cover the lates news on the standard, you’ll also be lucky to hear from Gunnar Mills, who will talk about the new Redfish support added in OpenBMC 2.7 and the future 2.8 version. Full agenda should be published RSN !

And all that is free (as in beer) for you, as all costs are covered by HPE and SUSE, so at least if you can’t come, invite your friends to attend but it’s first come, first serve ! See you there.

Its primary aim is to show sysadmin, architects and developers how to use the Redfish standard in their environments to benefit from a standard management layer for their deployments, configuration and management of systems.

Our knowledgeable and engaging speakers will help you better understand topics like using DMTF tools for system configuration, using the REST API to perform Redfish operations from python, learning latest news on the standard and its future evolution, Through interactive sessions, demos and labs, you’ll have a chance to network and better understand and practice the concepts presented.

This is a free of charge event, sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and SUSE.

Who can benefit:

• System/Software Developers

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 !
