OpenStack QA/Infrastructure Meetup in Darmstadt

I spent this week at the QA/Infrastructure Meetup in Darmstadt, Germany. Our host was Marc Koderer of Deutsche Telekom who sorted out all logistics for having our event at their office in Darmstadt. Aside from the summer heat (the conference room lacked air conditioning) it all worked out very well, we had a lot of […]

OpenStack Infrastructure July 2014 Bug Day

Today the OpenStack Infrastructure team hosted our first bug day of the cycle. The steps we have for running a bug day can be a bit tedious, but it’s not hard, here’s the rundown: I create our etherpad: cibugreview-july2014 (see etherpad from past bug days on the wiki at: InfraTeam#Bugs) I run my simple infra_bugday.py […]

DORS/CLUC 2014 OpenStack CI Keynote and more

Several months ago I was invited to give a keynote at the DORS/CLUC conference in Croatia on the OpenStack Continuous Integration System. I’ve been excited about this opportunity since it came up, so it was a real pleasure to spend this past week at the conference, getting to know my friend Jasna better and meeting […]

Elasticsearch blog features OpenStack elastic-recheck

At the Southern California Linux Expo this year I ran into Leslie Hawthorn of Elasticsearch and I told her a bit about how we’re using Elasticsearch in a newly developed elastic-recheck tool for failed tests unrelated to the code being tested. The result was an invitation to write a guest post on the Elasticsearch blog. […]

LOPSA East 2014 wrap-up

On Friday and Saturday I had the opportunity to finally attend and participate in a conference I’ve had my eyes on for years: LOPSA-East. I first heard about this conference several years ago while living in Philadelphia, but could never gather up the time or funds to attend. This year I was delighted to see […]

OpenStack Infrastructure March 2014 Bug Day

Today the OpenStack Infrastructure team hosted their third bug day of the cycle. First, I created our etherpad: cibugreview-march2014 (see etherpad from past bug days on the wiki at: InfraTeam#Bugs) Then I run my simple infra_bugday.py script and populate the etherpad. Then I grab the bug stats from launchpad and copy them into the pad […]

OpenStack TripleO mid-cycle sprint kicks off

On Monday, March 3rd, we kicked off the TripleO (“OpenStack on OpenStack” ) mid-cycle meetup at the HP offices in Sunnyvale, California. The day began by splitting up into groups with our specific focuses, including Ironic (bare metal) and Continuous Integration, where I ended up. I was able to spend the day following up on […]

OpenStack Infrastructure February 2014 Bug Day

The OpenStack Infrastructure team hosted our last bug day back in December. Since then, elastic-recheck has become a pretty big deal and the community has had to become more diligent about rechecking against actual bugs in the infrastructure, meaning our bug tracker has been much more active! In general, the team has been doing a […]

CloudCamp Hackathon and Ubuntu User Days

I’ve had a busy weekend! On Friday night I headed over to the San Francisco Hub for a CloudCamp Social Good Hackathon sponsored by HP Cloud (my employer) and Intel. The event kicked off with an introduction, including words from Dave Nielsen where he spoke about CloudCamps and touched upon how HP Cloud uses OpenStack […]

Final day at LCA 2014 with more OpenStack

Aww, the last day of Linux.conf.au! My schedule called for camping out in the WEBB lecture hall all day to watch talks by several of my OpenStack and HP colleagues. Things kicked off with James E. Blair’s talk titled How OpenStack Improves Code Quality with Project Gating and Zuul. He did a quick review of […]
