NLUUG Spring Conference 2010

Last week the NLUUG Spring Conference was held in Ede, this years topic was System Administration in general.. which means there was a pretty wide range of talks ... some of the talks were extremely interesting and gathered a lot of people , others really shouldn't have been put in the main room.. Frequenly organising them myselve it's always a difficult choice for a conference organiser.

Must say this was one of my better talks .. it all went smooth and nicely fit within time. Probably the promise of drinks and food after my talk helped some.

I started it of by showing the audience Patrick's opening Devopsdays'09 Video ...

I slightly modified the the slides for my NLUUG presentation, but they are based on the talks I gave on the same topic before

Please note that the Devops definition I give early in the
slides is there to misguide the audience ... :) Everybody knows drinking beer and eating sushi is just a start in the journey when you want to become a #Devops :)

The fun part about conferences often are the speakers dinners, you get to sit down with interesting people and talk about a variety of topics such as panacotta recipes and configuration management ..

It was fun ... too bad it took so long to drive there.. good thing we got back pretty quick..

Monitoring MySQL

The slides for my Monitoring MySQL talk , which I gave earlier today in an overcrowded MySQl Developersroom at Fosdem are now online, both at my site and at Slideshare

As of now I actually expect people to use those slides for schoolwork or next year in a main Fosdem track :)
As afterall that is the goal of Open Source and spreading the word ..

Upcoming talks

Over at OReilly GMT I listed lots of upcoming European conferences .. lots of interresting ones but I can't go to all of them .. well not till someone starts paying me for that ;)

So I won't go to Drupalcon , and Tom will be presenting at the Nagios Conference

I will however be talking about Open Source Virtualization at OpenExpo in Zurich , and one week later at OpenDays in Copenhagen. The talk will be based on my series of Articles on the History and Future of Open Source virtualization earlier this year at Virtualization.com

Given that those 2 conferences are week after week and LinuxKongress Hamburg being exactly a week later , this year will be the first since many that I'll have to miss LinuxKongress. I had a topic in mind, but time just didn't allow me.

T-Dose is also on my list and there is some talk about an upcoming CloudCamp in Berlin , but no final plans there yet.

Upcoming conferences

My Conference schedule is growing again. In about 2 weeks I`ll be in Ottawa at the Ottawa Linux Symposium.

I`ll be giving 2 talks there, the first at the Virtualization Miniconference where I`ll be discussing the new openQRM 4 and it's new Drupal style plugin management.

And my second talk will be together with my collegue Tom and we'll be talking about Systems Monitoring We'll be looking at how you can keep an eye on your infrastructure with open source tools

So after 2 talks at the LinuxKonference in Germany a trip to Linux.conf.au I`ll finally be visiting OLS :) I've looked a the OLS schedule and it obviously looks very interesting.

In september I`ll be talking about the Open Source Virtualization landscape at Open Expo Switzerland in Zurich .

If you run into me don't hesitate to chat .. always interrested in meeting new people.
