OpenStack QA/Infrastructure Meetup in Walldorf

I spent this week in the lovely town of Walldorf, Germany with about 25 of my OpenStack Quality Assurance and Infrastructure colleagues. We were there for a late-cycle sprint, where we all huddled in a couple of rooms for three days to talk, script and code our way through some challenges that are much easier […]

Common OpenStack Deployments released!

Back in the fall of 2014 I signed a contract with Prentice Hall that began my work on my second book, Common OpenStack Deployments. This was the first book I was writing from scratch and the first where I was the lead author (the first books I was co-author on were the 8th and 9th […]

FOSSCON 2016

Last week I was in Philadelphia, which was fun and I got to do some Ubuntu stuff but I was actually there to speak at FOSSCON. It’s not the largest open source conference, but it is in my adopted home city of Philadelphia and I have piles of friends, mentors and family there. I love […]

SANOG 28

This week I traveled to Mumbai, India to participate in SANOG 28, (South Asian Network Operators Group). This was an unusual conference for me. My husband is the networking guru and he routinely attends NANOG meetings, for the North American group. I even had dinner here at SANOG with a woman who knows him. The […]

Newton OpenStack Summit Days 3-5

On Monday and Tuesday I was pretty focused on the conference side of the OpenStack Summit, but with all the keynotes behind us, when Wednesday rolled around I found myself much more focused on the Design Summit side. Our first session of the day was on Community Task Tracking, which we jokingly called the “task […]

Newton OpenStack Summit Days 1-2

This past week I attended my sixth OpenStack Summit. This one took us to Austin, Texas. I was last in Austin in 2014 when I quickly stopped by to give a talk at the Texas LinuxFest, but I wasn’t able to stay long during that trip. This trip gave me a chance (well, several) to […]

OpenStack infra-cloud sprint

Last week at the HPE offices in Fort Collins, members of the OpenStack Infrastructure team focused on getting an infra-cloud into production met from Monday through Thursday. The infra-cloud is an important project for our team, so important that it has a Mission! The infra-cloud’s mission is to turn donated raw hardware resources into expanded […]

Mitaka OpenStack Summit Days 3 & 4

With the keynotes behind us and the conference side of the OpenStack Summit on its final day, I spent Thursday focused on the OpenStack Design Summit from 9AM onward. The day began with a work session surrounding Gerrit. We tried several months back to do an upgrade from version 2.8, but had to roll back […]

Mitaka OpenStack Summit Day 2

The opening keynotes on Wednesday had a pretty common theme: Neutron. Mark Collier shared that in the Liberty cycle, for the first time Neutron was the most active project in OpenStack. This is really inspiring news for the community, as just two years ago there was concern about the commitment to the project and adoption […]

Mitaka OpenStack Summit Days 0 & 1

For Mitaka, the OpenStack Summit is only 4 days long, lasting from Tuesday through Friday. That didn’t prevent Monday from being the kick off of festivities! I had two events Monday evening, starting with the Women of OpenStack networking event at Aoyama Laputa Garden. I was happy to be around many familiar faces who all […]
