July 2014 RDO Community Newsletter

With the first milestone behind us this month, and the second one coming up fast - https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Juno_Release_Schedule - the Juno cycle seems to be speeding past. Here's some of what's happened in June, and what's coming in July.


On June 6, Hugh Brock and the TripleO team talked about what's planned for OpenStack TripleO (the OpenStack deployment tool) in a Google Hangout. You can watch that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol5LuedIWBw

On July 9, 15:00 UTC (11 am Eastern US time) Eoghan Glynn will be leading a Google Hangout in which he'll discuss what's new in Ceilometer in OpenStack Icehouse, and what's coming in Juno. Sign up to attend that event at https://plus.google.com/events/c6e8vjjn8klrf78ruhkr95j4tas


Also, in July, RDO will have a presence at OSCON, July 20-24, in Portland, Oregon, both in the Red Hat booth, and also in the Cloud track - http://www.oscon.com/oscon2014/public/schedule/topic/1113 If you're going to be at OSCON, drop by to say hi.

In early August, the Flock conference will be held in Prague, Czech Republic - http://flocktofedora.com/ (August 6-9). In addition to all of the great Fedora content, Kashyap Chamarthy will be speaking about deploying OpenStack on Fedora. - http://sched.co/1kI1BWf

Although the OpenStack Summit is still a few months away, be sure it's on your calendar. The summit will be held in Paris, November 3-7. More information and registration will be available in the next month or two.
