My Miles Are About to Skyrocket

I reached out to my colleague that used to do This Job and asked him, “What events do you typically travel to outside of the OpenStack Summits [0] / PTGs [1]?”

And he replied something witty and important and vital and I completely didn’t have logging enabled nor did I write it down because I’m made of awesome.

But I did write down what OpenStack Days [2] are the biggest ones that I should try to attend, if not this year, in the upcoming years.

OpenStack Days Israel [3]
OpenStack Days Benelux [4]
OpenStack Days Nordic [5]
OpenStack Days NYC [6]
OpenStack Days UK [7]

And then there’s and FOSDEM [8] and DevConf.CZ [9] and two Centos Dojos [10] that I’m helping plan.

Oh, RIGHT! Plus RDO Test Days [11] in Brno!

This week, in particular, I have severe FOMO because it’s Red Hat Summit. And then 21-24 May is OpenStack Summit Vancouver. I’m remotely managing both. I’ve done everything I can possibly do to prepare for both, now I can only sit from afar and wait.

And put out fires, as needed.

Which means I could really use some distractions, People. Therefore, I thought it’d be nice to look at all the places IT

This means, over the next year, POSSIBLY, I’ll be travelling to…..
