If you use -- or are just interested in learning about -- the Xen Project Hypervisor, you will want to mark your calendar now for two great events coming later this summer.

September 15: Xen Project User Summit, New York City, NY

The Xen Project User Summit is great for:

  • Users who employ Xen Project software in their datacenter or cloud
  • Integrators who leverage the Xen Project Hypervisor in their solution or service
  • Architects who need to know how to best utilize the software in their solution architecture
  • Managers who want to understand what current and future features will enable their goals

At just US$79 for one day of sessions, the User Summit is an unmatched training opportunity for users of Xen Project software. Located at the Lighthouse Executive Conference Center in the heart of New York City, this event is a fantastic way to increase your knowledge of all things relating to Xen Project.  The lineup of talks will be unlike any other event this year, so it makes sense to take a long weekend in Manhattan in September.

Plus, this will be the best event this year for Xen Project users to meet and greet one another.  Excellent things happen when the talents of the community are allowed to cross-pollinate at User Summit!

Expected topics will include:

If you use the Xen Project Hypervisor, you have a rare opportunity to share what you've learned with your peers.  On September 15, 2014 in New York City, we will be holding our second annual Xen Project User Summit -- and we want you to join us there!

We are looking for talk proposals which will be of interest to other Xen Project users.  Subjects of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • How you use our project’s software in your datacenter or lab
  • How you integrate the Xen Project hypervisor in your solution or cloud
  • How you control the software with custom scripts or utilities
  • Why you chose Xen Project software instead of some other hypervisor
  • How much you time or money you saved by using our software
  • Where you’d like to see our project go in the future

Also, we’d welcome talks about:

  • Features of recent releases and how you use them
  • New projects building on Xen Project software which could open new avenues for end users (like the work around GPU virtualization, cloud operating systems like MirageOS, and additional architectures like ARM)
  • Instructive HowTo sessions to educate attendees about implementing particular capabilities within the software
  • The use of related products and projects (like XenServer, Xen Orchestra, CloudStack, etc.) to make our software even more powerful in the datacenter

Last night, the CloudStack Bay Area SF Users Group held a meetup in San Jose, CA at Datapipe. Thank you to Gary Veselka and Datapipe for hosting our group and providing pizza and drinks to keep the CloudStackers going throughout the evening!

John Kinsella kicked off the night with a quick introduction and reminder about the CloudStack Collaboration Conference Europe held in Budapest, Hungary on November 19-21st, 2014. The CfP deadline is June 25th, 2014 so submit your talk today! ApacheCon Europe will be co-located with the CloudStack Collaboration Conference from November 17-21st, 2014.

Our guest speaker, Amogh Vasekar, presented "Moving up the Stack with Stacktician." What is Stacktician? As Amogh put it, "CloudFormation for CloudStack." It is a web interface for template and stack management. Amogh demonstrated the working of the tool and discussed some of the challenges faced while executing pure CloudFormation templates. Click here for the slides. 

On behalf of the organizers (John Kinsella, Animesh Chaturvedi, Ilya Musayef and myself), we want to thank Datapipe for hosting the CloudStack SF Bay Area Users Group and providing a spacious venue for the CloudStackers.

Do you want to attend the next CloudStack meetup in the Bay Area? Become a member of our growing group and join us for pizza, beer and CloudStack talks! Visit: http://www.meetup.com/CloudStack-SF-Bay-Area-Users-Group/events/141814852/

I am pleased to announce the next Xen Project Hackathon. The Hackathon will be hosted by Rackspace in their London offices, May 29 and 30. I wanted to thank Paul Voccio and Gus Maskowitz from Rackspace for hosting the Hackathon. I also wanted to thank Rackspace for hosting the Xen Project wiki, mailing lists, blog and other services. This is in line with Rackspace’s vision of openness and helping people:

At Rackspace we build and live openness as much as possible and go out of our way to support and nurture open source where we can. We help people achieve success by solving their hybrid hosting and cloud problems. In that same line we are proud to help the Xen Project run a successful Hackathon in London 2014. Rackspace

What to expect at a Xen Project Hackathon?

The aim of the Hackathon is to give developers the opportunity to meet face to face, to discuss development, coordinate, write code and collaborate with other developers. Of course the event will allow everyone to meet in person and build relationships: to facilitate this, we will have a social event on the evening of the 29th. We will cover many hot topics such as the latest Xen Project Hypervisor 4.4 features, planning for the next Xen Project Hypervisor release, Cloud Integration, Cloud Operating Systems, Mirage OS, Xen Project in emerging segments such as embedded, mobile, automotive and NFV. But at the end of the day, the community will chose the topics that are covered.

To ensure that the event runs efficiently, we are following the following process: Each day is divided into several segments. We will have a number of work areas that are labelled with numbers (or other unique identifiers). Each morning starts with a plenary and scheduling session. Every attendee who cares about a topic can announce a topic, which we will map against a work area and time-slot. This makes it easy for other attendees to participate in projects and discussions they care about. Of course we also encourage attendees to highlight projects they plan to share before the event by adding them to our wiki.

We will wrap up each day with another short plenary session: the aim of this session is to summarize what was done, show brief demos and make improvements to the process.
