OpenStack Conference/Design Summit Program Committee

January 10th, 2011 — 4:47pm

I am pleased to announce the formation of the OpenStack Conference/Design Summit Program Committee who will work as a group to create the event agenda as well as overall conference theme. The following community members have volunteered their time:

  • Glen Campbell, Rackspace
  • Ram Durairaj, Cisco
  • David Holland
  • Jaesuk Ahn, Korea Telecom
  • Andrew Shafer, CloudScaling
  • Thierry Carrez, OpenStack Release Manager
  • Stephen Spector, OpenStack Community Manager

As the event is for the entire community, all community members are encouraged to participate with this group of volunteers in providing feedback and ideas for the agenda and theme. To monitor all event planning please watch this Wiki page (http://wiki.openstack.org/Summit/Spring2011) as well as the following three EtherPads:

I am also announcing that we have signed the contract with the Hyatt Santa Clara hotel for the event from April 26-29, 2011 and have obtained a discounted room rate for attendees with a room block. Please plan on staying at the hotel during the event as we will have a 24 hour lounge available for attendees to meet and work together as well as plenty of time for community members to hang out. If you are budget minded, we can also setup a room sharing program to ensure attendees can take part in this 24/7 event.

OpenStack Design Summit Program Committee

December 21st, 2010 — 11:02am

As part of the planning process for the April 26-29, 2011 Design Summit in Santa Clara, CA, I am announcing the creation of a a Design Summit Program Committee. This Committee is open to any community member interested in working on the agenda for the event and will be announced on January 4th, 2011 via the Event Wiki page at http://wiki.openstack.org/Summit/Spring2011.

The Program Committee will have the following responsibilities:

  • Participation in the high level agenda organization
  • Participation in the creation of the event agenda
  • Speaker recruitment and assignment based on agenda
  • Event speaker introductions (if able to attend the event)

The agenda development process will be done in the open via an Etherpad at http://etherpad.openstack.org/DesignSummitApril2011. Having an open agenda creation process ensures that everyone’s voice is heard and given a chance to contribute to this important meeting. Please feel free to review this plan at any time and also contribute, even non-Program Committee members are encouraged to submit ideas and provide feedback.

The Program Committee contains the following members (all volunteers):

  • Stephen Spector, Community Manager
  • Thierry Carrez, Release Manager
  • Architecture Committee Member

As you can see, we have at least 3 OPEN SLOTS I plan to fill but am willing to have a larger Program Committee based on volunteers. If you are interested in participating on this Committee please email [email protected] as I plan to launch this Committee on January 4th to the community.
