With just over two weeks to go until the OpenStack summit it is time to lock in your social schedule as well as the conference schedule. The vBrownBag crew are very pleased to announce our newest TechTalk sponsor, Nexenta, will be having a party on the Tuesday.
So welcome Nexenta and sign up for their reception.
With only 28 days to go until the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver we’re getting excited. Flights and hotels are all booked and we have over 90 TechTalk session proposed. Don’t let that stop you from proposing a session using this form.
I’m also delighted to announce that VMTurbo has joined our sponsors. VMTurbo have an awesome workload management product that is based on commodity trading for VMs to compete for physical resources.
See you all in Vancouver.
We have around eighty sessions proposed for TechTalks at the Vancouver summit next month. It is awesome to have so many but we have space for some more. Go ahead and propose a session using this form.
Particularly we would love to see more presentations from the women of OpenStack. Tuesday will be a solid run of women presenting, so far we have filled half of the spaces. Go ahead and propose a session using this form.
I’m also delighted to announce that Cisco is continuing to support the vBrownBag TechTalks. Cisco has been a sponsor of every TechTalk event at OpenStack Summit and at VMworld. Great to have you back with us.
With only 47 days remaining until the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver we are getting pretty excited.
We have 70 TechTalks proposed, so well on our way to making over 90 videos at this summit. There is still time to sign up to present your own TechTalk using this form.
It looks like we will have more TechTalks than we can fit in the schedule. We accept TechTalks in the order they are proposed, so get yours in early to avoid disappointment.
I’d like to welcome our first sponsor, HP are returning to support these community presentations.It is the sponsors like HP that make the TechTalks possible, so thank you HP.
We do have a couple of places available for sponsors, if your organization would like to become a sponsor of the vBrownBag TechTalks then contact me firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
It has only been a couple of months since we had an amazing week at the Paris OpenStack summit. Now it is time to look forward to the Vancouver summit in May. The vBrownBag crew are delighted to be returning to make TechTalk videos at our third summit.
This year will have a focus on the women involved in OpenStack, we plan to fill Tuesday’s schedule with women presenters. If you are a woman of OpenStack then consider presenting a TechTalk.
If you already know what a TechTalk is and want to register then go ahead and use this form.
TechTalks are ten minute presentations about some aspect of technology. TechTalks are delivered at a major conference. They allow a focussed look at a specific project, feature or technique. Presenters are usually the engineers or developers who built what they present. They have the deep knowledge without the marketing. All of the presentations are recorded and posted to YouTube, often we also live stream from the conference. Since TechTalks are short we can pack a lot into a day, at the Paris summit we recorded 70 TechTalks. With an extra day in Vancouver we hope to make 90 videos.
To get an idea of what TechTalks are you can find all the Paris videos in this YouTube playlist. The Atlanta videos are in this playlist.
As always we can only make these TechTalks with the help of our sponsors and the support of the OpenStack Summit organizers. If your organization would like to become a sponsor of the vBrownBag TechTalks then contact me email@example.com for details. Sponsor logos are applied to every video. Sponsors are guaranteed two TechTalk presentation slots.
We had an amazing time in Paris last week. Three days of packed TechTalk schedule meant that the crew didn’t get to see a lot of the Summit. Happily there is a fair amount of coverage available online.
We produced a total of 72 videos at the summit, our highest number for any conference where we’ve made TechTalks. Naturally getting the videos onto YouTube was a priority, so people not in Paris could see what we saw. You can find all of the TechTalks in this playlist and the schedule page now has links to every video. We could not have made these TechTalks without the support of our wonderful sponsors, Cisco and Brocade. Thanks for helping us and the community.
I feel very privileged to have been part of this event. Not only did we have a huge number of truly excellent presentations but we got to be tourists in Paris for a while. The centre of Paris is amazing, beautiful architecture and great food, I highly recommend visiting.
We are looking forward to another awesome summit in Vancouver with lots of TechTalks next year, hope to see you there.
We have only one month to go until the OpenStack Summit in Paris.
Below is the schedule of TechTalks at the summit, as you will see the three days of TechTalks is absolutely packed. We will be in room 126/127 of the Palais De Congres for the three days of the Main Conference. There will be people presenting all the time, so drop by and watch live.
We do still have spaces for more sponsors, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
There is not a whole heck of a lot that I was able to find in this area. Mayhaps it’s partly because of how KVM works. That is, VMs are naught but Linux processes and thus can be tuned the same way one tunes Linux.
We had an awesome time at the Atlanta summit, met a heap of new people and made a pile of great video. If you haven’t already checked it out this page has session titles with links to the video or the whole YouTube playlist is here.
Since Atlanta was so great we are going to go to OpenStack Summit Paris and do it all again, only this time more. We will be making TechTalk videos for the three days of the main conference. Now that the OpenStack community has seen what vBrownBag TechTalks are we hope that way more sessions will be proposed. At Atlanta we made 45 community videos, in Paris I’d like us to make 70. If you have something useful to say to the OpenStack community, something new or different, a project or implementation to discuss then propose a TechTalk. Simply fill in this form and I will be in touch close to the conference to organize with you. If you have any questions you can reach me alastair@vBrownBag.com
Naturally we are looking for sponsors to support these TechTalks. If your company would like to support this community activity please email me alastair@vBrownBag.com.
vBrownBag is going to Paris, Yay.
