Podcast: Udo Seidel of Amadeus Talks Gluster/OpenStack

I was at the Gluster London Community event in London yesterday and listened to speakers there talk about Gluster and demystifying what it is and also how it has made an impact in the storage world.

One of the speakers there was Udo Seidel from Amadeus in Munich who is well known in Open Source circles and a great guy to talk tech to. We meant to record this in Edinburgh as he was also at Linuxcon but time ran out. So we reconvened and yesterday we put this ten minute podcast together for you.

Come back next week for some more great content. Remember you can subscribe to the show via iTunes on your iOS or MacOS device of choice or any platform via the RSS or my syndicated feeds.

Podcast: Linuxcon / Gluster London Day

gluster_day

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.

Linuxcon Europe – Show 2 – Guy Martin

maxresdefault

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.

Gluster Day London 2013 rejig – news to follow

Due to unforseen circumstances with venue / scheduling we are having to move the Gluster day to an alternate venue and hence a new date, more than likely the 17th October. Talking to venues now and will have more info available by early next week. These things happen and at least it’s not that a big deal.

We are working on this now so as soon as there is something to say I promise we’ll have the pertinent registration info out to people as soon as we can in plenty of time for travel arrangements.
