Redfish Workshop at the Open Source Summit Europe 2019

2019/09/09

Not only will I be speaking at the upcoming Open Source Summit later in october, but I’m also coordinating a co-located event, the second Redfish Workshop !

A replay of the US Redfish Workshop will be held Thursday, October 31, 2019 | 9:00am – 5:00pm at the Lyon Convention Centre, the day after the Open Source Summit Europe 2019 ends.

The Redfish Workshop is a one day event, with live demos that puts you in direct contact with Redfish Project technical experts. 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
• Tech Leads / Development Leads
• Software Architects
• Chief Engineers
• System Engineers
• Development Engineers
• DevOps / System Administrators

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.

An end and a new start

2019/03/22

After nearly a year, I’ve now been declared in remission with my lymphoma. So that’s the end of this period. But I’m not completely done, as I’ll need to regularly check it’s not coming back. Being cured, is only possible after 5 years of remission. And I now need to return all the care my wife gave to me to her, as she was diagnosed with a breast cancer back in october 2018, operated immediately and she’s now in the mid of her own chemiotherapy, before radiotheray. So the real end should rather be around june this year, if everything continues to be for the best for her as it also seems to be (she had a much less streamlined relationship with the hospital, but that’s another story).

So now, it’s time to start again working full time to HPE (next week officially, even if with the recent events, I’ve been more than half time) and to come back to my FLOSS projects that have been suffering themselves meanwhile.

And the first one, as it’s the basis of the rest forme, is project-builder.org. I already had made modifications to use YAML type of configuration files, instead of my own format up to now (well, when I started back in 2007, YAML wasn’t as popular as it is today) but didn’t had time to test on other projects and publish and of course I also fixed some bugs such as:

So as of now, version 0.15.1 of project-builder.org is available and ready for you to test and thus improve your Continuous Packaging approach as part of your automation chain. Enjoy !

And now that my production toolset is ready again, I can come back at last to MondoRescue to publish that version that as been waiting for way too long now. Expect news in the coming weeks.
