SUSE Sessions you can’t afford to miss at OpenStack Summit Boston


The following blog has been contributed by Armando Migliaccio, SUSE, Distinguished Engineer.



OpenStack Summit Boston starts next Monday and here at SUSE, we are in full swing ensuring our sessions provide all the insights you need to assist you with your digital transformation.  The Summit is a four-day event full of presentations, panels, workshops, and educational opportunities to explore through the OpenStack Academy and while you can expect to hear conversations around cloud strategy, business case development, operational best practices and technical deep dives, I would like to personally invite you to join the conversations I will be leading next week.

Tuesday, May 9 | 12:10-12:45 pm | Get Me a Network: From Boot to Woot! | Level 3 – Ballroom C

In this session, I will be joined by Matt Riedemann from Huawei and we will present get-me-a-network, an OpenStack feature which is fully complete since the Newton release. With get-me-a-network rather than letting cloud users handle networking setup steps themselves, nova and neutron coordinate the provisioning of networking resources during the VM boot process, thus making the networking setup transparent. If you want to learn how to use this feature in your deployment or want to provide feedback on how to improve this feature, please join us by signing up for session.

Wednesday, May 10 | 9:50-10:30 am | Project Update – Neutron | Level 2 – MR 203

Join Kevin Benton and I, (both respectively current and former Neutron PTLs) as we update the audience on the latest and forthcoming features being worked on in the Neutron project. Developers who are interested in contributing to this project are strongly encouraged to attend, as are users and product managers who want to know more about the project’s latest features, their value to users, and the development team’s road-map. Please join us by signing up for this session.

Wednesday, May 10 | 2:40-3:20 pm | Being a Project Team Lead (PTL): The Good, the Bad and the Ugly | Level 2 – MR 207

Considering becoming a Project Team Lead? Attend this session first so that Steve Martinelli (IBM), Matt Riedemann (Huawei) and myself can provide you with the good, the bad and the ugly!  We will take you on a light-hearted journey on what it means to be the Project Team Lead for an Openstack project. We all have a combined total of nine OpenStack releases under our belts and will teach you the secrets about leading in an open source community and what sacrifices are necessary in order to be successful. If you are interested in being more effective in open source communities, please join us by signing up for session.

Be sure to add these sessions to your schedule and check out the rest of what the SUSE team has in store for this event! Stop by booth B6 to stay hi!
