Dutch Lock Down Day Ninety Five

[See You Next Year!]

StackConf Online was the sixteenth through today. StackConf is about open source infrastructure in the spectrum of continuous integration, container, hybrid and cloud solutions. Bridging the gap between development, testing and operations is one of the fundamental paradigms in modern IT. StackConf covers this concept from multiple perspectives.

But first the news:

Due to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19), the conference organizers decided to turn stackconf 2020 into an online conference. All talks were presented in a single track over the course of three days from June 16 – 18, 2020. 

“How IT experts run their applications and infrastructure in production has a big influence on how they design and build their technology stack. At stackconf you learn how.

Well-known international open source experts present their ideas within our three-day online lecture program. Expect an intensive exchange of experience and inspiring encounters in the live chat with the speakers!

Trendsetting concepts, state-of-the-art technical expertise, top-level discussions and new perspectives in dealing with large infrastructures have shaped the event, formerly known as OSDC, since 2009.

As one of the leading open source infrastructure events in Europe the conference attracts more than 150 visitors per year – and we are very excited to see how many will join us online!”

Dutch Lock Down Day Sixty One

Literally JUST NOW everything was shipped back to Red Hat, to the RDO Community, and to colleagues.

And I have absolutely no idea what to do with myself.

But first the news:

Today was SUPER WEIRD because pretty much all the big projects, workshops, meetings, and programs were due yesterday. Today was just about setting up the shipping packages. Two entire boxes of hardware and swag for the RDO Project. One of my two laptops and phone. One tiny envelope of swag stickers.

Feels weird.

Alternative Title: So Long Farewell Auf Wiedersehen Goodbye

Just in case you don’t know the reference because you haven’t seen The Sound of Music or don’t remember the iconic scene where the von Trapp kids sing their way out of a party in joy or out of a scary situation in stress, here’s the happier bit:

Also, if you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend the whole thing – simply brilliant. I’m normally a sci fi person myself, but it’s just SO iconic and there are just SO MANY beautiful scenes and songs.

Yes, I’m totally procrastinating.

Yes, I’ll get to the point shortly.

The Minions are headed back to BSO / daycare / school next week and the looming deadline is taking its toll on the oldest.

But first the news:

In the meantime, day zero of Red Hat Summit 2020 Virtual Experience starts today with OpenShift Commons and it just occurred to me LAST NIGHT that this means I’m expected to help navigate the chat rooms from 1500 local to #WellPastMyBedTime for the next three days.
