OpenStack Days are sort of local mini one-day OpenStack summits. Not everyone can travel to the OpenStack summits for a number of reasons so OpenStack days are great for that since there are many across a wide range of countries. The first one in Canada was in Montreal, at an awesome venue: the Notman house. There’s a lot of history about the place, definitely look it up - it’s very interesting !
OpenStack Montreal is a meetup that happens around every 2 months in Montreal. We talk and discuss about different OpenStack topics with interests for developers, users and operators. If you’d like to keep up with the event, attend (or present a topic!), please subscribe to the mailing list to be notified when something’s going on. Meanwhile, I presented a talk at the last event in February to talk about CI in and RDO, it was tons of fun.
The second meetup of Openstack Montreal, in collaboration with iWeb, Enovance and Savoir-faire Linux, will happen at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) monday march 17th. It’s with great pleasure that I accepted an invitation from my colleague Rafael Rosa (@rafaelrosafu) to talk about Ceph in the context of Openstack. Our friends at Enovance will be talking about Swift, the object storage project in Openstack. Should definitely be fun, it will in fact be my first public speech ever :D
