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
• Application Engineers
• Open Source Technologists

Our Keynote speaker will be Jeff Autor who will cover (at least !) the latest news since last year around the Redifsh standard.

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.

Meet at the Open Source Summit US

2019/05/25

I’m very happy to have been selected once more for the upcoming Open Source Summit US in San Diego from the 21st to the 23rd of August 2019.

I will deliver there 2 sessions this year:

  • One on Docker (a hands-on lab) that I always welcome by attendees as they really understand what it means to containerize afterwards.
  • One on Redfish (a presentation) that will be derived from the one made in Fosdem with extensions from what I shared during TSS.

As I wasn’t able to participate last year due to my health issues, I’m particularly happy to see I’m still considered as a relevant speaker for such a high profile event. Now I need to convince my company that it’s worth the money to send me over there to evangelize around key technologies for HPE, which is less and less easy 😦

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 😉

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 !

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 !
