Meet at the Paris Open Source Summit

2016/11/16

Ok, you see, I’m late ! Not only in producing new versions of software but also to make this type of single announce 😦 But it’s cloudy these days, that may explain that;-) So after having presented during the DACH OpenStack day in Berlin, I’m today (!) leading again this year the Cloud track at the Paris Open Source Summit with great speakers such as Christophe Sauthier (Objectif Libre) who won a POSS award yesterday, Bruno Gillet (Red Hat) who had already a session last year and Julien Corioland and Pascal Sauliere (Microsoft) whom I’m curious to hear about MS’ FLOSS strategy !

So come in Room Grèce at 1:30PM if you want to follow that 2 hour session. Or tomorrow in the main conference room at 11:35AM as I’ll animate a round table around OpenStack Coopetition with again Christophe Sauthier (Objectif Libre) (not just because he won a price, because he has interesting stuff to share about leading CloudKitty !), Patrick Petit (Mirantis), who knows a lot on integration work on OpenStack, and Julien Niedergang (SUSE) who is at the heart of a downstream distribution work with OpenStack.

And last but not least, If you haven’t attended live (you should have!) the keynote of Axelle Lemaire, delegate ministery for Digital in France, sponsor of the event, please do so (as soon as it’s available) as since the creation of all these events in France back in 1998, this is by far the best one. Energizing, visionnary, balanced, with a very dynamic expression, contrary to most years, nobody was sleeping in the room ! Kudos to Benjamin Jean, Jean-Christophe Elineau ad the team for getting her on stage, as I suppose it’s not an easy task, but we need more of such talented speakers. And she contributes to make +1 for women in the men/women balance in that event, which is an additional nice point.

A story of Meetups !

2015/11/17

The meetups are really useful way to animate local communities. And there are a lot happening these 2 weeks:

  • Tomorrow, 18th of November 2015, during the Paris Open Source Summit, you can first attend the 18th OpenStack-France meetup dedicated to the big tent, with great contributors such as Christophe Sauthier (who will also talk during the POSS cloud track) and Thierry Carrez (whose name is sufficient in itself !)
  • Next week, the 25th of November, in Grenoble, I’ll participate to the DevOps Meetup to present a toolbox for DevOps
  • The day after, I’ll host in our Hewlett Packard Enterprise Innovation Solution Center the Grenoble Docker meetup dedicated to Docker 1.9 and the announces of DockerCon hold this week

If you’re a confirmed actor, come to share and learn anyway 😉 and if you’re looking for info on these topics, hopefully you’ll get some interesting input. Anyway see you there !

Paris Open Source Summit maintained

2015/11/16

Despite the barbary that occured last friday in Paris, the Paris Open Source Summit (merge of Solutions Linux and Open World Forum) will happen next Wednesday and Thursday, respectiveley 18th and 19th of November 2015 in les Docks Pullman.

I’ll be leading the track Cloud, with a great program and speakers list detailing use cases as well as various tools, approaches, especially on OpenStack. I’ll also deliver a session (even if not on the web site at the moment !) on HP Helion OpenStack.

See you there and let’s continue to talk about freedom, and not only in software !
