Le Logiciel Libre au Festival Transfo

2018/01/15

Bon, maintenant, vous devriez tous savoir qu’il y a cette semaine un Festival Transfo sur Grenoble et les environs !

Mais plus intéressant, il y a plusieurs événements en lien avec le libre dans le cadre du festival:

Comme vous le voyez, il y aura de quoi faire lors de cette semaine consacrée à la transformation numérique, qui bien évidemment, n’a aucune chance de réaliser sans le recours aux logiciels libres 😉

Venez nombreux !

La FLOSSCon v0 est sur les rails

2018/01/11

Bonjour et bonne année à ceux que je n’ai pas encore croisé.

Alors, oui c’est un peu fou, mais c’est parti pour un petit FLOSSCon v0 les 19 (et peut-être 20) janvier.
L’annonce est maintenant disponible sur le site du festival transfo, donc nous existons 😉

Nous avons maintenant un site (https://www.flosscon.org) et une gestion de l’événement informatisée au mieux grâce à OSEM (merci à la communauté openSUSE et Vincent pour la mise en oeuvre !). Tout ne sera pas parfait, mais on se rode en visant une v1 pour soit plus tard en 2018 soit dans le transfo 2019 à nous de décider ultérieurement.

Si vous souhaitez parler vendredi 19, entrez très rapidement une proposition dans l’outil.
Le CA de l’association FLOSSITA reverra les propositions semaine prochaine et finalisera le planning. Oui, j’avais déjà dit que c’était court !

Le vendredi est technique, le samedi (si salle dispo) plus autour de l’écosystème du libre.

Si vous connaissez une salle libre samedi matin prête à nous accueillir, veuillez nous contacter !

Merci à tous ceux qui ont déjà oeuvré pour que cette v0 existe et rendez-vous très bientôt !

Et retrouvez aussi certains d’entre nous lors de la table ronde dédiée au FLOSS du lundi 22 janvier, lors de la journée HPE au Festival Transfo. Nous aurons en plus de Manuel (Enalean) et Erwan (Combodo) la participation de Nicolas Vivant, DSI de la ville de Fontaine où une politique en faveur du logiciel libre est activement mise en oeuvre.

Table Ronde sur le logiciel libre à Hewlett Packard Enterprise pour le Festival transfo

2017/12/23

J’ai déjà mentionné le Festival Transfo sur Grenoble en janvier 2018 et le fait que notre toute nouvelle association FLOSSITA souhaitait y organiser la v0 de son événement FLOSSCon.

Indépendamment, Hewlett Packard Enterprise organise de son côté une journée complète autour de la transformation numérique. Dans ce cadre, Vincent Misson animera une table ronde sur « Les logiciels libres: qu’est-ce, pour qui, comment, avec qui ? » dans laquelle j’interviendrai comme conférencier, en compagnie d’Erwan Taloc, CEO de Combodo et de Manuel Vacelet, CTO de Enalean, deux sociétés actrices du logiciel libre sur Grenoble. Venez nous écouter le 22 janvier à 17h30 !

D’ici là, bonnes fêtes de fin d’année à tous.

Meet during the Open Source Summit in Prague

2017/10/16

Getting approval for my participation at that conference was the toughest I ever had in the past, but I’ll be there again after having spoken in all the previous editions.

This time, this presentation will be made by a duo, as I’ve worked since the last LinuxCon EMEA with the FOSSology project to help them adopt a Continuous Packaging approach and Michael Jaeger from Siemens who leads the project will be with me to cover the topic. On my side, I’ll explain how project-builder.org was used, the setup done with Vagrant and containers to generate packages for 7 different Linux distributions (ongoing effort as we speak ;-), automating fully the production of packages as part of the LinuxFoundation build infrastructure for FOSSology. And of course the changes I had to make to the code to better support the project needs !

So I’ll be back in Prague (no problem as I love that city !) next week, to celebrate also the 10 years of project-builder.org, just after my week at DockerCon which is really starting today !

Meet at DockerCon Europe

2017/10/12

This is a late announce, as I wasn’t sure to be able to attend the event, but now everything is on track and I’ll be at DockerCon Europe next week ! One of my proposals has been selected as a 20′ session in the Community Theater and I’m glad as this is the first time I can participate to DockerCon. Project-Builder.org is using Docker since September 2014, so I’ll be able to celebrate the 3 years of Docker usage in pb after the 10 years of pb itself 😉 More seriously my goal is to promote again Continuous Packaging and demonstrate how beneficial it has been to introduce Docker in the chain, and how my upstream projects, as well as FOSSology are benefiting from it. Come to see that !

Of course, HPE is a platinum sponsor of the event so if you’re one of our customers, I’d also be happy to talk with you around your Docker projects as HPE is sponsoring my travel there ! (Thanks to the management to support again this despite hard times for travel requests and the HPE Next plan). Maybe I’ll still have a job when I’m back … or not 😉 Anyway, will see later as I’m now busy preparing my slides and demo for DockerCon among other stuff. See you there !

Meet at SUSECon 2017, Prague

2017/09/16

As the sessions I proposed for the event weren’t accepted, I considered I had no chance to attend this year SUSECon. But it turned out that there was a need for HPE to have someone able to talk about Helion OpenStack on the booth, and I have been chosen to do it, so I’ll be around this year, for the first time, from the 25th to the 29th of September, in the beautiful city of Prague (will be my 4th time there !).

I’ll look forward meeting with some of my SUSE friends over there, and discover a new event.

Of course, as usual feel free to come and talk to me (I should be on the HPE booth when it’s open) of OpenStack, SUSE CaaS (as we’re working on a Reference Architecture on Synergy) and of course Open Source in general, and early music in particular 😉

It’s been a while

2017/09/12

When I look at the date of the last post, indeed it’s been a while since I took time to write here.

Many reasons to that, I took time off this summer to lead the infrastrcuture track at the RMLL, then to make music, for the 28th year in a row with 3 concerts and a diaporama, to visit Normandy with part of my family (Caen, Rouen, the Bayeux Tapestry, Honfleur, and many other places), back to work for some days and then doing another concert with the Variations ensemble I lead around François Ier in Monêtier les bains.

Then back to work. On top of my normal activities for HPE, I tried to incorporate various fixes into MondoRescue to finally publish 3.3.0, but that has again been delayed 😦 It seems I have a hard time publishing it, despite getting good patches or making them myself. I destroyed a system while doing tests, which forced me to update to Mageia 6 published meanwhile to put it back on track ! That didn’t help, and also I now need to check again but in VMs to avoid that issue and fix it for good (was too confident my modified code was working, but I was obviously wrong !). This is linked to fixes in mindi in order to fix size of initrd and its automatic computation. THat should be part of 3.3.0 as a consequence.

In order to solve support for multiple GPG keys signing my packages, I’ve had to go back to project-builder.org, and enhance it. Which lead to the publication of 0.14.6 (still not fully finished, despite code being frozen). And also I had work during my vacation time on chaging the format of project-builder.org conf files, from our own, to a YAML based one. For now, it’s just a change in format, not a semantic one, but that ill allow to improve some aspects, and also I get for free a syntax analysis with the perl YAML.pm module, which is nice (add -v to get the conf file concerned). So version 0.15.1 should come soon, once my 2 main users outside of myself won’t complain about bugs anymore.

One of these projects is FOSSology, and I should present the joint result of our common work with Michael Jaeger on the build infrastructure we put in place for the project to do Continuous Packaging at the upcoming Open Source Sumit in Prague in October, but it seems HPE doesn’t want to support my trip (I still didn’t get travel approval yet) and I may have to pay for it myself for the first time since I started talking at this conference back in …Prague in 2011. If you know anybody who would sponsor me, that would be great !!

Speaking of conferences, I’m this week at the Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, as part of my HPE job, where I lead a round table this morning on containers (are they the future of IaaS ?).

So despite having been quiet for long, Ive been busy as usual, and trying to improve the software I’m contributing to, andour global ecosystem, as well as the musical one. Hopefully you’ll get more news soon, as new releases and travel arrive !

Meet at the Open Source Summit NA 2017

2017/06/26

Despite difficult times for HPE, I’m still supported by my management to continue to represent HPE during tier 1 Open Source events such as the Open Source Summit North America, held in Los Angeles from the 11th to the 14th of September. Well, of course, because I was accepted as a speaker again !

I’ll lead a round table to cover with panelists whether “Containers are the future of IaaS ?

So as usual, if you are around, I’ll happy to discuss with you around Open Source in general, and the projects I’m involved with in particular such as MondoRescue (yes, there will be a new version soon, now remains to see the definition of soon), project-builder.org (same thing), Redfish, containers, early music or more.

Time to Meet at Hewlett Packard Enterprise Technology & Solutions Summit 2017 !

2017/01/24

It’s time again for me to prepare the HPE TSS designed for our presales and channel partners, with some of our the best experts to transfer knowledge on everything HPE !

We have again this year a track dedicated to Open Source and Linux !).

So I’ll be in Cannes from the 6th to the 10th of February to cover:

  • B90 HPE’s Open Source Strategy – Auditorium K – Tuesday 7th of February 2017 – 5:30PM-6:20PM
  • L30-R1 Docker 101 Tutorial – Lab 1 – Wednesday 8th of February 2017 – 8:30AM-10:20AM
  • B91 Docker @ HPE – Ambassadeurs B – Wednesday 8th of February 2017 – 12:00AM-12:50AM
  • L31 Docker Orchestration Tutorial – Lab 1 – Thursday 9th of February 2017 – 8:30AM-10:20AM
  • B94 Docker: technology aspects and tools – Redaction 1 – Thursday 9th of February 2017 – 3:00PM-3:50PM
  • L30-R2 Docker 101 Tutorial – Lab 3 – Thursday 9th of February 2017 – 4:30PM-6:20PM
  • B92 Linux Distributions roadmap – Redaction 3 – Friday 10th of February 2017 – 8:30AM-9:20AM
  • B6 HPE RESTful API and the Redfish standard – Espace Californie – Friday 10th of February 2017 – 12:00AM-12:50AM

Pretty busy week no ?! And you should be able to replay the labs/tutorials on Wednesday afternoon during the OpenLab session in Lab 1.

A lot of sessions are covering Docker related topics this year, and I’m happy with thatas it’s a great techno, even more with the recently announced 1.13 bringing service support to docker-compose !

For those of you wondering why project-builder.org and MondoRescue versions are not published more regularly, that gives you again a hint 😉 Not speaking of the travel for 2 weeks starting the week after this one, and the next event in March in Grenoble, TES, where I’m part of the Event team and that we’ll organize for the 8th time.

See you there to talk of these subjects or something else as you see fit. I’m around the whole week.
