I’ll admit to being somewhat amused by the OpenStack Summit planning call earlier today (At time of writing) because it’s possibly the smallest EMC event presence I’ve seen in a while.
And that’s a good thing.
Raise the Jolly Roger! Us brave few are sailing out from under the long corporate shadow and doing this guerrilla style.
EMC has been making contributions to OpenStack since 2013 and is a core contributor to Cinder and Manila but Paris will reflect an escalation of community involvement over time.
And hey, if I can use it as a lever to get deeper involvement with Free and open source software from more parts of the company, that’s a win too.
You can find the list of events, sessions and booth details here. I’m looking forward to joining my industry colleagues on Monday morning for the OpenStack storage panel and we’ll see if we can have some sizzle with the steak when it comes to the content.
Feel free to drop in if you’re around.
