For posterity #lca2016   #ceph
I told a little story about Ceph today in the sysadmin miniconf at linux.conf.au 2016. Simon and Ewen have already put a copy of my slides up on the miniconf web site, but for bonus posterity you can get them from here also. For some more detail, check out Lars' SUSE Enterprise Storage – Design ...

My take on the Pets vs. Cattle cloud computing metaphor. +Adam Spiers and +Florian Haas, do please speak up if I misquoted, misremebmered or misrepresented anything either of you said :-)
I was at SUSECon 2015 in Amsterdam a few weeks ago, which, aside from being a great conference, was an opportunity to actually interact with my colleagues in person for a change. So I finally got to meet Adam Spiers after working-ish with-ish him for at least three-ish years (strictly speaking ...

This is a reminder that we're now only two week away from OSDC 2015 in Hobart (October 27-29). If you're not already registered, now's the time!

  https://2015.osdc.com.au/register/

To clarify, because somebody asked the other week, you don't need to "be an open source developer" to come to OSDC 2015.  "Be" and "developer" are such ambiguous terms these days   Anyone with any interest in open tech, data, education or government will likely enjoy the conference.

We've got some really interesting keynote and plenary sessions from Maia Sauren, Mark Elwell, Richard Tubb, Michael Cordover and Pia Waugh; six tutorial sessions covering InkScape, MySQL/MariaDB replication, web app vulnerabilities, online map creation, FreeIPA and F-Droid; and of course all the excellent wide ranging regular talks, on everything from viruses, to security, to debugging, to education, to community, to... well, probably best to just check out our exciting schedule at:

  https://2015.osdc.com.au/schedule/

Hope to see you there!
Register here to get your ticket! Regular tickets for the full three days are only $350 and cover morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea during the conference, as well as the conference dinner at The Apple Shed in the Huon Valley on Tuesday evening. Additional dinner tickets are available for $80.

“How'd you solve the icing problem?” “Icing problem?” “Might want to look into it.” — Iron Man (2008). On a particularly cold Saturday morning a couple of years ago, my mobile phone couldn't get any signal for a few hours. But I didn't really care, because I had breakfast to eat, animals to feed ...

Strictly speaking this isn't a hologram, but it's very cool (also, today I learned that CD cases are irritating to cut...)

We're now only six weeks out from the Open Source Developers' Conference 2015, which is running in Hobart for the first time from October 27-29. Our latest schedule is up at:

  https://2015.osdc.com.au/schedule/

Notably, this includes our Wednesday and Thursday keynotes and plenaries:

* Climbing the Garden Wall – An Educator's Odyssey in Second Life and OpenSim by Mark Elwell
* EasyCount, freedom of information and openness by +Michael Cordover 
* Opportunities in Openness. Driving positive change in local communities by Richard Tubb
* Open Source in government: lessons from the community by +Pia Waugh 

We've also confirmed the conference dinner on the Tuesday will be at The Apple Shed in the Huon Valley, consisting of delicious fresh local produce.

Wednesday night we've got birds-of-a-feather sessions.  These are completely delegate driven - we provide the space, you bring yourselves and your topics.  We've got at least two rooms and at least two hours to split up here.

Early bird tickets are almost gone, so if you want to pick one of these up, get in quick!

  https://2015.osdc.com.au/register/

Note that if you have particular dietary requirements, please ensure you register prior to Friday 2nd October, to allow sufficient time to notify the catering people.

Finally, for those of you in Melbourne and Sydney, just remember -- a flight to Hobart can be cheaper (and quite possibly quicker) than a taxi home to the outer suburbs  ;-)
Please note: the schedule is currently a draft and is subject to change without notice. The opening keynote and more talks will be announced shortly - watch this space :-). The registration desk will be open from Monday 26th October, so aiming to arrive on Monday is your best bet to experience ...

The draft schedule is up at https://2015.osdc.com.au/schedule/

Tell your friends! It's going to be great!
Please note that all tickets cover morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea during the main conference days, as well as the conference dinner (Tuesday evening). If your attendance is covered by a company or organisation that can afford it, please consider registering for a corporate ticket. This helps fund the attendance of students, speakers and volunteers. Thanks! If you are a current student and can prove it, you may register for the lower rate ...
