Wrapping up the OpenStack Travel Support Program – Icehouse

The OpenStack Foundation brought 18 people to Hong Kong thanks to the grants offered by the first edition of the Travel Support Program, sponsored by Intel. The Travel Support Program is based on the promise of Open Design and its aim is to facilitate participation of key contributors to the OpenStack Design Summit. The program aims at covering costs for travel and accommodation for key contributors to the OpenStack project to join the community at the Summits.

Adopt an operator?

Lorin Hochstein made what he calls “a modest proposal”: a program to pair up individual OpenStack developers with OpenStack operators to encourage better information flow from ops to devs. Sounds intriguing, it may be a way to try tightening the gap between developers and users of OpenStack. Another proposal trying to address the same issue was sent to the User Committee mailing list. What do you think?

Vmware Workstation / Fusion / Player Nova driver

The fine folks at Cloudbase are heavily using VMware Workstation and Fusion for development, demos and PoCs. They have replaced their automation scripts with a fully functional Nova driver and use OpenStack APIs and Heat for the automation. They published the results of their work as a Nova driver on github.com.

Wrapping up the OpenStack Travel Support Program – Icehouse

travel

The OpenStack Foundation brought 18 people to Hong Kong thanks to the grants offered by the first edition of the Travel Support Program, sponsored by Intel. The Travel Support Program is based on the promise of Open Design and its aim is to facilitate participation of key contributors to the OpenStack Design Summit. The program aims at covering costs for travel and accommodation for key contributors to the OpenStack project to join the community at the Summits.

We had 18 people accepted in the program from 11 countries and all continents (except Antarctica)! Four people travelled from India, two from south-east Asia, three from Europe, three from North America, four from Oceania and the rest from Africa and South America. Of the 26 total applicants, four were fully paid by their employers and didn’t need the grants, four couldn’t be accepted due to paperwork problems because of local political turmoil.

The Foundation spent a total of US$16,742 for accommodations and US$11,795.61 for flights, with a total cost for the Foundation of over US$30,000 including the costs of the 11 access passes granted to the non-ATCs (Active Technical Contributors). Luckily most people were able to share the rooms, which cost US$1,522 each allowing more people to be able to participate in the program.

This was the first time the OpenStack Foundation ran the program and we would like to continue running and expanding it in 2014. As one of the recipients of the travel grant, Terri Yu told us:

As great as it is to work with people on IRC, you’re not getting the full OpenStack experience by sitting in front of your computer.  You have to meet people.  If there is an important contributor who can’t get to the Summit, I’d like to see them funded by the Travel Support Program.

We’ll soon start working on the “J” edition of the Travel Support Program, to help people get to Atlanta (Georgia) in the USA in May 2014. Watch this space for announcements.

Spinning up OpenStack “DefCore” Committee by spotting elephants

This week, Joshua McKenty, Rob Hirschfeld and a handful of interested individuals (board member Eileen Evans included) met to start organizing the DefCore* Committee. This standing committee was established by an OpenStack Foundation resolution just before the Hong Kong Summit. This action was an immediate result of the unanimous passage of the 10 Principles that Rob was driving in the DefCore “Spider” cycle. Read the summary of the outcomes of the first meeting.

How to get new questions on Ask OpenStack via email

Email is still one of the best mechanism to get push notifications, so getting automatic nudges via email from Ask OpenStack is useful. I took some time to document how to get an email message every time a new question is asked on Ask OpenStack.

Who Wrote OpenStack Havana Docs?

Indulging with our own Anne Gentl in the glorious beauty of numbers and metrics, following up on a similar post about previous release, Who Wrote OpenStack Grizzly Docs? At the time Grizzly had 79 docs contributors overall, with 3 of them writing half of the changes for Grizzly. This time the team grew to 130 docs contributors with 7 of them writing just over half the changes in overarching install/config/deploy/operations guides. Progress! We also had at least three supporting companies hire writers dedicated to OpenStack upstream docs.

Our first OpenStack Ambassadors

Following on from our earlier discussions about the OpenStack Ambassador Program, it is with great excitement that the Foundation introduced the first OpenStack Ambassadors. In this initial stage, we were only looking for a small number but were very honoured to have applications from many more excellent candidates and will aim to introduce more ambassadors in the next 6 months. The ambassadors are currently working to scope out the program and are keen to start making an impact in our community. Follow the discussion on the community mailing list.

Welcome new Gold Members Aptira, Hitachi, and Huawei!

The OpenStack Board of Directors approved Aptira, Hitachi and Huawei as Gold Members of the OpenStack Foundation. The companies are based in Australia/India, Japan and China respectively, and range from a startup to established, multinational corporations.

OpenStack User Survey Statistics November 2013

The OpenStack User Committee and Foundation staff conducted a survey of OpenStack cloud operators and end users, and are sharing the results with the community this week during the OpenStack Summit Hong Kong. The goal of the survey is to give users a strong voice in the community to share their technical requirements, feedback and best practices with the developers building OpenStack, as well as other cloud operators.

The survey generated 822 responses and catalogued 387 OpenStack cloud deployments across 56 countries.  A few key highlights on the detailed blog post and infographic.

Expect the Minus One

We want your patches for OpenStack, Keystone. Just don’t be surprised when it gets a minus one rating. A patch that gets a minus one from a core developer is probably on the right track, it just needs adjustment to fit in with the rest of Keystone. In other words, don’t be afraid, says Adam Young.

Agreeing on a feature to implement at the OpenStack summit

Women of OpenStack, Why?

Why do we get together in person each Summit? Let me tell you. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here are some pics from our Women of OpenStack boat outing Monday night on the harbor. The grey fog was everywhere and we couldn’t go on deck because it was just too wet. The buildings lighting up are an amazing sight, you can hardly capture the lights in photos. And I can hardly capture the value of getting together with other women in OpenStack at the Summit, but here goes.

Untitled

We had a great time on the boat, and at happy hour afterwards I had an awesome chat with a woman from IBM who is pretty much my neighbor! It’s a small world with tight connections in Austin for high-tech women. It seems impossible with the numbers game we’d know each other’s schools, streets, neighborhoods, and so on, but in reality we’re rare enough birds of a feather that it is natural for us to get together and know each other well.

Why do we get together apart from the rest of the conference? We have a couple of themes for our meetups, we talk about outreach to more women, especially in education as early as elementary school and definitely through college. Also, I got to meet our GNOME Outreach Program for Women intern, Terri Yu, in person! That’s a huge part of these in-person gatherings, getting to know each other personally. But we also want to find concrete ways to make our meetings meaningful. We talk about a few tracks for our goals – outreach, education, career planning and mentoring. We came up with some ideas for our goals, and we keep discussing each Summit. It’s like a design summit session for women of OpenStack. In between Summits we stay in touch on LinkedIn though I also serve as an API, ha ha.

We look for speaking opportunities for women in the cloud. We have held workshops geared towards outreach to women, introducing lots of technical women to OpenStack. For example, this past year Iccha Sethi, Jessica Lucci and I ran a workshop at the Grace Hopper Open Source Day, and Anita Kuno, Lyz Krumbach Joseph and Ryan Lane ran a CodeChix workshop. We generally forge the bonds that hold together a common minority by talking about schools, parenting, gin as a vegetable, shoes, traveling, and how does this OpenStack Neutron plug-in work, anyway?

There are so few of us that we need to be diligent about our outreach and staying connected. I blogged about a question related to under representation of minorities in the Technical Committee on my Reflecting on the OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong. We need to be hyper-vigilant about imposter syndrome, uncovered by researchers who found that many high-achieving females tended to believe they were not intelligent, and that they were over-evaluated by others. Believe me, I have to fake it to make it daily.

Our culture as a community may reward the most confidence, but in reality as we grow as a community it’s important to understand that some cultures don’t view confidence in the same way, and some people will not naturally exude confidence. We’re also looking at English-as-a-second-language increasing in prevalence in our community, and a former OPW (Outreach Program for Women) intern Anita Kuno recently edited our Technical Committee charter to be gender-neutral. All of this matters, all of these actions answer the valid question, “Why?” I hope you’ll join us in outreach efforts, together we make OpenStack better for all contributors.

Our first OpenStack Ambassadors

Following on from our earlier discussions about the OpenStack Ambassador Program, it is with great excitement that I would like to introduce our first OpenStack Ambassadors.

In this initial stage, we were only looking for a small number but were very honoured to have applications from many more excellent candidates and will aim to introduce more ambassadors in the next 6 months.

The ambassadors are currently working to scope out the program and are keen to start making an impact in our community. Follow the discussion on the community mailing list.

Below are brief introductions – but we believe many of you already know and work closely with our newly entitled folk:

Marcelo Dieder is a founding member of the OpenStack Brazil user group and is part of the translation team of OpenStack Brazil. He has helped in the growth of the group, organizing events, lectures and local surveys to attract new users and contributors to the project.

Erwan Gallen is the founder of the OpenStack French user group. He has organized lots of events to promote OpenStack and federate users. He has contributed to the certification process, documentation and help spreading technical knowledge in the OpenStack community. Erwan believes strongly in open cloud interoperability.

Tristan Goode, OpenStack board member, and organiser and supporter of dozens of events across Australia, India and on-line. His vision aims to bring user groups closer together and increase the penetration of OpenStack into new and emerging markets.

Akihiro Hasegawa, one of the board members of  the Japan OpenStack User Group , is the organizer of OpenStack Days Tokyo 2013 and 2014 – the biggest OpenStack Business event in Japan.

Kenneth Hui, lives in New York City, USA and is a frequent speaker at conferences and meetups. He is also co-organizer of the Connecticut, New York City, and Philadelphia user groups.

Márton Kiss, founded the Hungarian user group, and hosted Openstack CEE Day. He a have a vision about promoting Openstack in the Central European region and tries to convert sysadmins to devops and change their mind about operating modern IT infrastructure. With cross promoting in Budapest meet ups he have the vision of teaching python and agile development for students, and give more ATCs to Openstack projects.

Ye Lu, runs probably the most popular OpenStack social media channel- Weibo @OpenStack, in addition to arranging meetings in China – attracting more ATCs, and assisting with promotion by interfacing with local media.

Colin McNamara, member of the SFbay OpenStack user group, Core Reviewer on OpenStack Docs and Co-Founder of OpenStack-Training is focused on increasing contribution to OpenStack by lowering barriers to adoption as well as identifying and supporting intellectually gifted individuals in economically disadvantaged areas and situations and connecting them with the tools to improve their situation and OpenStack as a whole.

Kavit Munshi, one of the founders of the India user group, who has developed an innovative plan to introduce OpenStack into universities, and creation of targeted events for the market there aiming to increase adoption.

Michael Still has been hacking on OpenStack since Diablo, and comes from an operations background. He is now a Nova and Oslo core reviewer, but loves to help operators make Nova more reliable. He also runs and speaks at OpenStack events in and around Australia.

Sean Roberts an OpenStack Board Member who runs the San Francisco, USA user group, is also the author of the OpenStack User Groups HowTo. He is now spearheading the community training effort aiming to make OpenStack accessible to more people  worldwide and encouraging community members to participate in outreach, teaching and learning.

Akira Yoshiyama, is an active member of Japan OpenStack User Group. He has driven more than ten OpenStack study meetups/hackathons and lectured in Japan since 2011. He is also one of the Japanese translators of OpenStack Operations Guide and maintainers of openstack.jp.

Reviewing how Blueprints are handled

OpenStack Compute Tech Lead Russell Bryant has triggered an important discussion on the OpenStack Development mailing list about the process to review blueprints. The Blueprints wiki page currently assigns to Project Tech Leads the task of assigning priority to the blueprints and Russell is suggesting that a wider group of people in the community shares such responsibility. Join the discussion on the development mailing list and in Hong Kong.

OpenStack “Core” and Interoperability

Have you been following the “what is core?” conversation since the “Incubation Update” committee completed its work some time ago? This discussion is going to be the big ticket item during next week’s board meeting. Mark McLoughlin shares his thoughts and a discussion derived from it on the OpenStack Foundation mailing list.

The Hong Kong Summit: Why I’m Excited

Victoria_peak

We asked our community why they’re looking forward to the OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong next week. We received a number of colorful responses and we’re sharing some of the best here. Have something to add?  Let us know why you’re excited for the Summit in the comments below!

 

Terri Yu, @terrimyu

da43d11f6932ff2fc6f8342488bf59e2

1) Why are you excited for the Hong Kong Summit?

How can I not be excited, it’s my first software developer conference!! I just finished my Outreach Program for Women internship. I’ve never been to Hong Kong and my mom is from that area, so I get to visit lots of family & friends that I normally don’t get to see. Plus, I need an OpenStack t-shirt for my collection.  My utmost gratitude goes to the OpenStack Travel Fund for making all of this possible!

2) Which sessions are you not going to miss?

“Ceilometer+Heat=Alarming” and “Deploying and Training on OpenStack at MIT: Helping to Accelerate World-Class Research.” My internship mentor, Julien Danjou, is one of the speakers for the former, but I’m an MIT alum and have done a lot of scientific research in the past. So let’s call it a tie.

3) How will people recognize you at the Summit?

I’ll be carrying a thermos filled with yerba mate tea and wearing a black Patagonia fleece jacket over a nerdy or hockey t-shirt. I don’t have any OpenStack t-shirts yet, but some t-shirts I plan to bring: dog ate my homework, Museum of Mathematics, San Jose Sharks Hockey, “Eat More Kale”. I may wear my Québec Remparts hockey jersey at parties.

 

Raghavan ‘Rags’ Srinivas, @ragss

1) Why are you excited for the Summit?

I think the summit has turned the corner. It seems more oriented towards using the stack not just developing it.

2) Which sessions are you most looking forward to?

The keynotes. And I’m naturally biased towards my talks: http://sched.co/1fzTrfq and http://sched.co/14Fd94P.

3) How will someone recognize you at the Summit?

My Indiana Jones hat.

 

Sven Michels, @geektoor

709ecc70c012dac10bc378891390e29b

1) What’s getting you excited about the Summit?

OpenStack is an amazing piece of software. Being part of a summit like this is also a guarantee to meet amazing people. It’s also my first trip that far away, so it’s a double excitement :-)

2) Are you looking forward to any particular sessions?

No special session, I want to get inspired by the summit itself to pick the right ones. Main interest is security and availability.

3) How will people recognize you at the Summit?

Easy to notice me by my wheelchair and of course a tablet (and some USB power. In case someone runs out of power, just ask).

 

Brent Doncaster, @Brent_BWD

ufokjfqzsu8shogemrft

 

 

 

 

 

1) Tell us why you’re excited about the Summit in Hong Kong.

It’s Hong Kong! Haven’t been back since ’89!. And it’s my first OpenStack Summit!

2) Which sessions are you looking forward to? Why?

Dell and InkTank Ceph – cuz its cool! 

2) What 3 things will you not be seen without?

Video camera, Dell log shirt, and a smile!

 

Flavio Percoco, @flaper87

Screen-Shot-2013-09-12-at-8.40.46-AM

1) Tell us why you’re excited for the OpenStack Summit?

Basically everything. I’m definitely most exited by the fact that it’ll be Marconi’s first summit!!!!!

2) Which sessions are you most looking forward to?

All Marconi, Oslo and Glance sessions, because those are the projects I’ve been working on in the last year. I’m also looking forward to some of the Release Management sessions, I see a lot of value in those for the whole project.

3) How will someone recognize you at the Summit? What 3 things will you not be seen without?

Huge smile, lot of excitement, rainbow sandals, shorts and I’ll be moving my hands Italian style. :D
