As mentioned during last week's IRC meeting, I'm working on getting a rolling
schedule of oVirt workshops organized. The goal is to host a workshop every few months and
rotate through the various geos so that we can spread the word about oVirt most widely.
Here's what we have slated thus far:
June 8, 2012: Workshop at LinuxCon Japan (APAC)
August 29-31, 2012: Workshop at LinuxCon North America (NA) - exact date TBD
November 5-7, 2012: Workshop at LinuxCon Europe (EMEA) - colocated with KVM Forum, exact
January 2013: Workshop at NetApp in the San Francisco Bay Area (NA)
- Awaiting confirmation from NetApp that this timing works for them.
March 2013: Workshop at Intel Shanghai (APAC)
- Intel can host the week of 17 March or 24 March. I propose we aim for 21 & 22 March
and assume that by this time our curriculum will have grown to cover two days. If it has
not, we can trim a day from the schedule later.
Does anyone see blockers on their end for 21 & 22 March 2013?
May 2013: Workshop at Cisco Campus in Research Triangle Park (NA, North Carolina, USA)
- Awaiting confirmation from Cisco that space will be available in this location and time
Working internally to get some sort of confirmation of this plan. I should have
preliminary approval later this week.
Open Question: LATAM workshop
I propose that we target an oVirt workshop at the FISL 2013 conference, which should take
place in the July 2013 time frame in Porto Alegre, Brazil. FISL attracts nearly 10,000
attendees and would be an excellent location for us to debut our oVirt efforts in the
Alternatively, we can attempt to locate space on a company campus in LATAM to host the
workshop. If anyone has space to offer, please let me know.
