OpenStack at Linux.conf.au 2013 – Videos posted and some pics

March 4th, 2013 — 7:26am

I know it was just over a month ago and I apologize for being dreadfully late to blog it, but I just thought I’d post up a few pics of LCA2013 and links to the videos of the talks.

Here’s the full list of talks from LCA2013:
… and all the OpenStack ones (that I can find in that list), from both the miniconf and the main track.
This is a significant tally of content given there was exactly 1 OpenStack talk at LCA2012! (go Monty!)My thanks to the many attendees and especially the speakers, many of whom travelled a long way to Canberra for the event. Thanks to the Foundation and especially Kathy Cacciatore for the main conf sponsorship that also allowed us to give out the best t-shirts ever from http://www.dopenstack.com. Thanks also to Susan Derrick at HP, Florian Haas at Hastexo, Tim Serong at SUSE and Katrina Clauscen at Aptira for sponsoring the “Cloud Hour” happy hour.With amazing keynotes from the likes of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Radia Perlman and Bunnie Huang and a wealth of incredibly diverse and deep technical content, if you’ve not been to LCA before, go next year! We will be back with what will be sure to be an even bigger OpenStack miniconf.

Australian OpenStack User Group events this month

August 3rd, 2012 — 3:23am

A couple of upcoming Australian OpenStack User Group (AOSUG) events I want to tell everyone about…

Hobart August 17 – OpenStack Chef and Puppet Code Dojo, the day before PyConAU!

PyCon Australia is the national conference for users of the Python Programming Language and is being held this year on August 18 and 19. This third PyConAU conference is being held in the beautiful city of Hobart in Tasmania. There’s a fantastic weekend lined up, including two days of fun and informative sessions on every aspect of the Python ecosystem. There’s also exciting social events planned, including the CodeWars programming tournament, the Women in Python breakfast and a conference dinner cruise and reception at Peppermint Bay.
PyConAU Registration is here.

On the preceding Friday the 17th we’re holding an OpenStack Code Dojo featuring Chef and Puppet. Special Guests for morning talks (live via satellite, well sorta, I’ve just always wanted to say that), will be Matt Ray from Opscode and Dan Bode from Puppetlabs. This will be followed by an afternoon code dojo specifically geared around creating, managing and versioning virtual machines. Food and drinks will be provided, my thanks to David Flanders, the PyConAU team and NeCTAR for their help organising this. Aptira will be throwing on the beverages for an after party of sorts! To participate in the day please go to the aosug.openstack.org.au site and RSVP.

Adelaide August 28 – Meetup

In conjunction with SAGE-AU and many thanks to Robert Mibus for the invitation, we’re inviting South Australian OzStackers to join the regular Adelaide chapter of SAGE-AU’s monthly meeting in Adelaide on August 28. Numbers for this event are limited so if you’re an SA OzStacker please jump onto http://aosug.openstack.org.au and RSVP to reserve your spot.

September events are planned for Melbourne and Sydney, and Brisbane in October.

Anyway that’s all from me for now, hope you all have a great Friday.
