I have some more articles coming out on Opensource.com in the next few weeks centred on security in the wake of the Bash fallout from last week. I'm also going to be helping run our OpenShift workshops at Pycon in Dublin next week then flying to Dusseldorf for LinuxCon EU / CloudOpen and the oVirt workshops. I'm on the Open Source panel with old pals Jono Bacon and Leslie Hawthorn moderated by Guy Martin of Samsung who has of course appeared on my radio show in the past.

I'll be recording videocasts and some audio at both events whilst there. Keep a watch on my Twitter feed for forthcoming bits and pieces.

This weekends podcast talks about my thoughts around Linuxcon, I also put front and centre my thoughts about our responsibilities in the Open Source world.

Big thanks to Jim Zemlin, Stephanie Markowski and Jennifer Cloer for their hard work and diligence to help make Linuxcon such a success and inviting me there to podcast. As a card carrying paid up member of the Linux Foundation getting those podcasts recorded as professionally as possible and to draw attention to what Linux and Open Source is about is crucial.

In the past few weeks I've podcast about, and talked about the Gluster Community Day this coming Tuesday in Shoreditch, London. A free event starting at 2pm till 6pm, lots of great speakers, demos and lots more. I'm podcasting from there so if you fancy being on a show get down there and say hi. More information from the Gluster Community Page, and register via Eventbrite here. If you're into Openstack, storage, cloud, open source then this event is especially for you.

Now go listen to the podcast - this one's just me talking but it's a call to arms and important.

Joining me at Linuxcon Europe for an overdue podcast is Guy Martin who works in the Open Source group within Samsung America. Guy is ex Red Hat and ex Collab.net and like me, an "old man" of Open Source, he'll forgive me for describing him as such. I've wanted to get a microphone in front of him for a LONG time so I made the most of having him with headphones and a mic.

We talk responsibilities in OSS development, playing fair, briefly touch on ethics and the GPL as well as how OSS and Linux is shaping technology creation and adoption.

Join me later for three or four more shows and thanks to Guy for making time to record this show.

c1e1c27b-a864-475c-94fa-97c5a553ff2cThis weeks podcast is with Klaus Oxdal of Red Hat Nordics. Klaus is a good friend of mine who I've worked closely with for 3 1/2 years or so and he eats lives and breathes Red Hat. Much like my erstwhile American/Dutch TechGod colleague Eric Schabell he is one of the Red Hat EMEA cyclists spending a lot of time in Red Hat colours on the roads of Denmark.

Only this time he's going one better. Klaus is part of a team cycling from Denmark to Paris, France culminating in a sprint finish to the Eiffel Tower. It's all for a good event it's for a Children's Cancer Charity. It's a mammoth distance, it's a mammoth effort and I thought we'd tag onto the end of our conversation an invitation for people to find whatever they could afford to make a difference in treating childhood cancers. An amazing cause that deserves our support. I've stumped up cash as a parent of two children and I'd like to think we can help raise them some funds.

john_RMGluster.org Community Workshop and London Community Day 

In the podcast I also talk about Gluster.org the upstream of Red Hat Storage having a workshop at LinuxCon Europe (where I will be attending and doing the show podcast) and speaking with the likes of my shadow and compadre from Gluster.org / Red Hat John Mark Walker pictured with me above. The day is WELL WORTH ATTENDING if you're going to LinuxCon or even if you're not.

The workshop starts at a very reasonable 10 a.m. This full-day, free workshop includes talks on using Gluster with OpenStack, KVM/QEMU, and how to develop apps to integrate with GlusterFS. This is a chance for developers and admins to learn first-hand what GlusterFS and related open software-defined storage projects in the Gluster Community can accomplish in cloud and virtualized environments.

  • State of Gluster (John Mark Walker)
  • Gluster for SysAdmins, an In-depth Look (Dustin Black)
  • Gluster and OpenStack, a Case Study (Udo Seidel)
  • Gluster, QEMU and KVM (Vijay Bellur)
  • Developing Apps and Integrating with GlusterFS (Justin Clift)

Please join us on October 24th at the Sheraton next to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Registration for the Gluster Workshop is free, sign up today on the LinuxCon/CloudOpen sign-up page. Note: Choose the “Speaker” registration and use the code GLUSEU13 if you’re not registering / registered for the rest of the conference.
