There’s a number of upcoming events where RDO enthusiasts will be present. Mark your calendar!
Join us for Test Day!
Milestone 3 of the Pike cycle was released last week, and so it’s time to test the RDO packages. Join us on Thursday and Friday of next week (August 10th and 11th) for the Pike M3 test day. We’ll be on the #RDO channel on the Freenode IRC network to test, help, answer questions, and propose solutions.
We encourage you to attend your local OpenStack meetup. There’s hundreds of them, all over the world, every day. We post a list of upcoming meetups to the RDO mailing list each Monday, so that you can mark your calendar. Or you can search meetup.com for events near you.
If you’re going to be speaking at an OpenStack meetup group, and you’d like to have some RDO swag to take along with you, please contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org – or Rain – email@example.com – with your request, at least two weeks ahead of time.
And if you’re a meetup organizer who is looking for speakers, we can sometimes help you with that, too.
The following OpenStack days are coming up, and each of them will have RDO enthusiasts in attendance:
- Sep 14, 2017 – OpenStack Days Benelux, Bussum, NL
- Sep 26, 2017 – OpenStack Days UK, London
- Sep 28 – 29, 2017 – OpenStack Days Italy, Milan

If you’re speaking at any of these events, please get in touch with me, so that I can help promote your presence there.
The week of September 11 – 15th, the OpenStack PTG will be held in Denver, Colorado. At this event, project teams will meet to determine what features will be worked on for the upcoming Queens release. Rich Bowen will be there conducting video interviews, like last time, where OpenStack developers will be talking about what they worked on in Pike, and what to expect for Queens. If you’ll be there, watch the announcements from the OpenStack foundation for how to sign up for an interview slot.
On October 20th, we’ll be joining up with the CentOS community at the CentOS Dojo at CERN. Details of that event may be found on the CERN website. CERN is located just north of Geneva. The event is expected to have a number of RDO developers in attendance, as CERN has one of the largest OpenStack deployments in the world, running on RDO.
Other RDO events, including the many OpenStack meetups around the world, are always listed on the RDO events page. If you have an RDO-related event, please feel free to add it by submitting a pull request on Github.
