Design Summit/Folsom/Unconference

Folsom Design Conference Open Space


The keyword is participatory. That's what makes it different from the regular conference sessions - we're looking for sessions that really engage all the participants, be it in hands on exercises or vigorous dialogue.

Principles and Rule

  1. Whoever comes is the right people
  2. Whenever it starts is the right time
  3. Whatever happens is the only thing that could have
  4. When it's over, it's over

The only rule is The Law of Two Feet.

It says simply that you, and only you, know where you can learn and contribute the most to the work that must take place today. It demands that you use your two feet to go where you need to go and do what you need to do. If at any time today, you find that you are not learning or contributing, you have the right and the responsibility to move... find another breakout session, visit the food table, take a walk in the sunshine, make a phone call -- but DO NOT waste time.

Session Proposals

The actual sessions will be decided in the morning and after lunch each day starting after lunch Monday, but here is your chance to warm your fellow participants to to your proposal on an etherpad: http://etherpad.openstack.org/folsom-unconference-proposals


Room: Golden Gate

If there is no contention for the space, post the schedule here from http://etherpad.openstack.org/folsom-unconference-proposals . Otherwise, negotiate with the other people wanting the space in person.

Date Title Proposer Description
11:00 Nova Plugin Framework design workshop Andrew Bogott During the 'Split Nova and make it more pluggable' session there was strong support for addition of a plugin framework in Folsom. This session will involve pulling apart my proposed design and building up a better one. http://etherpad.openstack.org/NovaPlugin
12:00 How to Get OpenStack - Wiki updates Mike Pittaro Installation information on the OpenStack wiki is currently unorganized, and sometimes very much out of date. Also, it is not at all clear how to get OpenStack. Plan is to create a wiki page summarizing the varios installers, distros and packages, ppa's, and commerical distribution to enable one stop shopping.
14:00-14:30 Repose Status Jorge Williams Give a brief status of the Repose project. Discuss new features.
16:30 The Open Cloud computing Interface & OpenStack Eugene Luster (R2AD) Topics to be discussed include: What is OCCI and its goals? Where does OCCI fit the OpenStack picture? What does the the OpenStack OCCI API implementation do today? How should OpenStack address “extra” APIs? Q&As. All are welcome to it from the inquisitive to the skeptical!

There is an open session on OpenStack and CloudFoundry at 18:00 - http://cfhackathon.eventbrite.com/

11:00am-12:30pm Brainstorming ideas for PaaS (Reddwarf) Nirmal Ranganathan/Michael Basnight There's been a lot of talk about PaaS in general and several proposals. It would be nice to brainstorm ideas and come up with a solution to get it kickstarted in the community. The Reddwarf code base is already at a point where some of the basic features are implemented. We would like to propose to move this project with others interested in the community for the Folsom release.
