DevOps, Cloud, Automation and more! birds-of-a-feather session at Open Source Bridge
Eliot Center (First Unitarian Church)

Join us at Open Source Bridge for lightning talks and discussions on exciting topics in devops best practices, cloud infrastructures (e.g. VMware Cloud Foundry, Rackspace Cloud, Amazon Web Services, openstack, etc), and tools (e.g. Puppet, Chef, etc).

This BoF will be a great way to meet fellow practitioners and experts building the tools and platforms of the future. You’ll be able to find out what cool things others are doing and share your ideas.

If you’d like to give a short talk, 3-15 minutes, please prepare and mention it at the beginning of the meeting so we can add you to the agenda. We’ll spend the rest of the time in open discussions, which will be awesome.

Expect to meet engineers from Puppet Labs, VMware, RackSpace Cloud, openstack and other organizations in this industry. There will also be swag, like books and t-shirts.

The Portland DevOps User Group and the Portland AWS User Group meet regularly to discuss these sorts of topics, see http://pdxdevops.org/ and http://pawsug.janrain.com/ for details.

IMPORTANT: If you don’t already have a ticket for the Open Source Bridge conference, you’ll need to either buy one or register for a free “Community Pass” that will let you into the Friday unconference, Hacker Lounge and the evening BoFs: http://osbridge.eventbrite.com/

Sysadmin and Developer Tools and Tricks Swap
Side Door

This is a meetup that was inspired by the Tool Swap at BarCamp Portland. The idea is to sit down and share your favorite tools and tricks, maybe that is a plugin for git, maybe it is a hot key you couldn't live without in bash, maybe it is a feature of your editor.

This is the first one to gauge interest and if people like it we could start doing it each second Thursday.

This meeting is set at the same venue, during SEPoCoNi (Southeast Portland Coders' Night). We've spoken about themed SEPoCoNi meetups so lets try one.

PLUG: The Ganeti Virtualization Management System
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Lance Albertson of the Oregon State University Open Source Lab will give an introduction to the Ganeti Virtualization Management System.

Ganeti is a robust cluster virtualization management software tool. It’s built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen and KVM and other Open Source software. Its integration with various technologies such as DRBD and LVM results in a cheaper High Availability infrastructure and linear scaling.

This hands-on tutorial will cover a basic overview of Ganeti, the step-by-step install & setup of a single-node and multi-node Ganeti cluster, operating the cluster, and some best practices of Ganeti. Finally, deploying and using a web-based management tool called Ganeti Web Manager.

If you want to participate on the hands-on portion of the talk, feel free to clone his vagrant-ganeti repo on github (https://github.com/ramereth/vagrant-ganeti) prior to the meeting. We'll try and have the box images available on USB drives at the meeting but its always great to have everything setup prior to the meeting and not saturate the wifi.

Lance is the Associate Director of Operations for the Oregon State University Open Source Lab (OSL) and a Gentoo Linux Developer. He joined the Gentoo Linux project in 2003 and have been involved in managing their infrastructure and maintaining about a dozen or so packages in portage. Lance directs all of the hosting and development activities that the OSL provides for the open source community including projects such as Kernel.org, Drupal, Apache Software Foundation, and many many more. Lance has been at the OSL since 2007.

Portland Puppet User Group Meeting
Puppet

Please join us for an evening of Puppet talks!

We hope you'll join us for the next Puppet User Group meeting. We'll have a talk on Upgrading Puppet Agents with Less Magic (puppetlabs-puppet_agent).

More about the talk: Upgrading the version of a Puppet agent can be simple: create a package resource with the desired version. However, that only works with a few package managers, and you have to find the package repositories hosting those packages. Then there’s Puppet 4; upgrading to Puppet 4 comes with a lot of changes. It can be daunting to find the changes necessary to ensure your agent will talk to your Puppet master after upgrading to Puppet 4. The puppetlabs-puppet_agent module aims to address those problems and makes use of many new language features in Puppet 4 while doing so. This talk will walk through how it works.

Speaker Bio: Michael Smith has been writing software in C++ for 10 years, with an obsession for avoiding preventable mistakes. He’s currently a Sr. Software Engineer on the Open Source Client team at Puppet Labs. https://github.com/MikaelSmith

Agenda:

  • 6:00-6:30 Pizza & salad, including vegan & gluten free options
