Vancouver Summit - Deja Vu Edition

This was the first repeat OpenStack Summit location for me. While there have been repeat locations in the past, I wasn't at the first Summit at any of those locations. I think that means I'm getting old. :-)

There was a lot that had changed, and also a lot that stayed the same. The Vancouver Convention Center is still a fantastic venue, with plenty of space for sessions. And although I did attend all of the Oslo sessions, just like last time, we didn't over-schedule Oslo this time so I had a chance to attend some non-Oslo sessions as well. Since I'm also focusing on Designate these days, I made sure to catch all of those sessions, even the one at 5:30 PM on Thursday when everyone was a bit tired and ready to leave. And it was good - there was useful information in that presentation. I felt more productive at this Summit than last time, which is certainly a good thing.

With the intro out of the way, let's get down to the nuts and bolts of the sessions I attended.

Musings on the Austin Summit

This is going to be a bit of a different summit recap than my previous ones. Since Steve Hardy has already posted an excellent summary of the major TripleO topics from this summit, I'm not going to duplicate all of that here.

Instead, this will be a more personally focused post, wherein I reflect on my experience at this summit and how it compared to previous ones. If that kind of navel-gazing sounds incredibly uninteresting, then you might want to pull the rip cord now. :-)

Tokyo Summit - Upgrades and Containers

Another summit has come and gone, and I survived two trans-Pacific flights! A mere 16 hours of sleep when I got home is all it took to (mostly) get over the jet lag. :-)

But this isn't a travel blog, so you probably don't care about that. You want to know what's going on with OpenStack, at least from my perspective. If you don't care about that either, the back button is ^thataway^. Or maybe \/thataway\/ if you're on a mobile device.

Vancouver Summit - Big Changes for TripleO

Yes, it's still a thing.

Evidently there is a belief out there that TripleO died this cycle (which is understandable, in some ways), but I assure you we are still hard at work on it. In fact, there are some big changes in progress as I write this.

Vancouver Summit - The Moose is Loose

Third time's a charm, right?

Well, yes and no. Overall I would call the summit a success, and a lot of good things came out of it. It wasn't all sunshine and puppies though, and there are definitely some things I personally, and we as a community, could improve. Which means I should have lots of interesting things to talk about in this post. Let's get right to it.

Paris OpenStack Summit - The Big Tent Casts a Long Shadow

So it's been a couple of weeks since I got back from the Paris Summit, but it's been a busy time and I haven't had time to write up all of my thoughts about it. Here's my belated attempt to do that.

Juno Summit Thoughts

I attended my first OpenStack Summit in Atlanta last week, and now that I'm (mostly) recovered I wanted to write down some of my thoughts about the experience.
