Hi everyone, Put the date in your calendar! The oVirt developer meeting will be held in Edinburgh on October 23rd alongside the KVM Forum.
As most of you know, the KVM Forum is happening alongside LinuxCon Europe and CloudOpen Europe in Edinburgh this year, on October 21-23. As we proposed to the oVirt board in January, we would like to take advantage of this gathering of KVM core developers to plan the future of the oVirt project too. In addition to the numerous oVirt presentations which have been proposed both for CloudOpen and the KVM Forum, we will be setting aside one day for developer working sessions. The agenda for these sessions is not (yet) set - we will have subject matter experts leading discussions on the future of their component, where oVirt fits into the broader world of virtualization and the cloud, and how we can grow the community. Among the topics which may be on the table are: * Storage - integration with Gluster, Ceph, Swift, Cinder, NetApp, EMC * Core virtualization - what's missing to make oVirt the best virtualization solution on the market? What's next? How can oVirt best take advantage of the latest KVM features? * Networking - Going beyond Quantum integration: L2 and L3 networking in oVirt * User interface & engine - making oVirt nicer to use and easeir to learn * Ecosystem - Integration with OpenStack, CloudStack; migration strategy from vSphere; integration with other 3rd party projects - what is our place in the world? * Community and marketing - Should we add a forum? How can we grow the user base and community of oVirt? (Note, these are just my ideas - topics will be set by session leaders on a specific topic). What next? First, if you are interested in the future of the oVirt project, please plan to attend the developer meeting. If you are active in oVirt, but cannot finance your travel to the event, please send an email to dne...@redhat.com - I can't promise anything, but we do not want budget constraints to be the main reason for someone missing the meeting. Second, if you are interested in leading a working session on one of the topics above, or a different topic which is important to you, please send an email to the Workshop program committee at workshop...@ovirt.org We will keep you posted with schedule updates and more details as plannign advances during the coming weeks. Thanks for your interest, and for your support of oVirt!
