We’re continuing the Open Source Ecosystem Design Sessions at the OpenStack Summit Paris (Nov 3-7, 2014). It’s an opportunity to foster the projects and communities that don’t fall under the umbrella of the OpenStack Foundation, but are actively being used and developed within the greater ecosystem. We were inspired by everyone who came together to plan the next development cycle on their storage, configuration management, orchestration and networking projects. If you have an open source project that’s related to OpenStack and has a significant community of contributors, we invite you to submit a proposal.
Julien Danjou reports on what’s happening within the OpenStack Telemetry program, with a retrospective on Ceilometer and its drawbacks.
Entertaining post by Rob Hirschfeld about DefCore. “There’s no point in sugar-coating this: selecting API and code sections for core requires making hard choices and saying no. DefCore makes this fair by 1) defining principles for selection, 2) going slooooowly to limit surprises and 3) being transparent in operation.”
Fun game by the fun folks at Metacloud. They’re printing and giving away in Paris custom-printed decks of cards that include the most influential people of OpenStack. The best part? The community gets to decide who is featured in the deck!
The Road To Paris 2014 – Deadlines and Resources
During the Paris Summit there will be a working session for the Women of OpenStack to frame up more defined goals and line out a blueprint for the group moving forward. We encourage all women in the community to complete this very short surveyto provide input for the group.
