Hey Folks:
How about a hands on session with OpenShift in May? I can do two types of talks - hands on and get your app going on OpenShift Online (in any of the languages and with any of our datastores) OR if we want to spin up our instances of OpenShift Origin PaaS in a VM?
Let me know if you are interested and we can start to schedule.
spousty@redhat.com is also where you can reach me.
Thanks
Steve CP

@thesteve0 Thanks! I really want to solicit the opinion of the rest of the board on this, so guys, please feel free to speak up openly. I'm new OpenShift, but here's my initial take:

  • I like the idea
  • It sounds like an extremely cool technology
  • Even though I know it's OSS, we'd need to be careful to avoid this sounding like a vendor pitch. (It's weird that we'd even have to think about that for an OSS product, but since this is a substantially RedHat-backed technology, we should manage perception.)
  • Could you think of some ways to shape the talk to avoid that misunderstanding? In particular, I'm thinking of ways to help ordinary devs who do not run ops for successful SaaS businesses (which might therefore be well-served by a PaaS infrastructure) could make use of a system like this, or at least benefit by knowing it.
Matthew McCullough

@thesteve0 I like the idea. I will second @tlberglund in my own way of saying something similar. I think the best responses at DOSUG are for talks that help our audience bridge what they need to do but aren't, or are, but are doing less well than they could to a future filled with :rainbow: and :unicorns: (why is that not an emoji?).

Our audience could be described as:

  • Medium to large business employed
  • Sharp developers that have experimented a fair bit with technologies (not just using what their management tells them to)
  • Liking OSS because of its "free as in speech, not as in beer" goals
  • Mixed in their use of disuse of cloud services
  • Interested in how existing stacks of JEE and Java apps could be easily brought or step-wise brought into the cloud space.

Thoughts?

Hi @thesteve0 ! Haven't heard from you in a while, but wanted to let you know we're still keen to talk about this for May. Any thoughts on the above to bring this to fruition? Thanks in advance!

Looking to put the data here once ready to go http://meetup.denveropensource.org/events/112443962/

Matthew McCullough

@mojavelinux Do you happen to have email contact info for @thesteve0? Super interested in having him for May, but haven't heard from him in a while.

Hi Steve!

The Meetup begins at 5:30. We chat, grab pizza, late people like me roll in.

From 6 to 9 (or maybe 8:30?) the speaker rocks the podium (with a 15 min break in between for more pizza).

After the meetup, we sometimes re-convene at a local pub for beer and snacks.

The meetup location is at The Innovation Pavilion, 9200 e mineral ave, centennial, co 80112 (NOT at the Microsoft building, that's the old location.)

To see previous talk topics, audience interests, etc. checkout the DOSUG meetup page: http://meetup.denveropensource.org/

And now I'll stop hijacking this conversation and turn it back over to Matthew :laughing:

Hope to see you soon, Steve!

@graphitefriction So appreciative of you supplying the data during Finland's night. Not a hijack. Such a help. :heart: your contribs, always, @graphitefriction.

Ok folks, can you please let me know of a link Openshift and I can promote for the event.
What is the location - I still haven't gotten a hotel.

Here is the talk I will basically be giving though I will change a little bit of the wording and topic sentence
http://presentations-techsmacktalk.rhcloud.com/judconbrworkshop/index.html#/

The outline is:
1) 10 minutes of learning about PaaS and cloud
2) Then everyone is making a Java (or Python or Node.js) application
3) Then everyone does a quick code change and deploys- they have all now used a PaaS
4) Now we add MongoDB
5) Merge a git repo
6) Does some shell comands
7) Walk through some code.

In Brazil and other places I have had some people follow along with others or just watch the Festivities.
Does that work for everyone.
Sorry it has taken me a while to respond - I am battling a cold.

Thanks
Steve

@thesteve0 I'm on the road teaching in L.A. so I'll let me colleagues fill in some details tonight or tomorrow if possible, but I can get you that event URL right away:

http://meetup.denveropensource.org/events/112443962/

The address is:

The Innovation Pavilion
9200 E Mineral Ave, Centennial, CO

There's a plethora of solid hotel choices around that area, or just a little farther south (5 minutes) such as the "Marriott Tech Center South".

Matthew McCullough

@danhillenbrand could you pop this updated outline and evening recipe into our Meetup site? It would be great to indicate that this can be both a follow-along-with-your-own-laptop opportunity, should you want to learn from it that way.

@thesteve0 Any thoughts about the time-to-content-outline plan for the 40m + 40m segments for us to put on the site? In short, do your past runs suggest what fits into the first 40m and the second 40m that Dan can list?

Sorry to hear about your cold. Mend soon!

Great job, @thesteve0! After we got the Internet figured out, this was a super cool demo of a technology I just might put into personal use soon. You did a fantastic job with a user group workshop, which I happen to know is no simple thing. :)

@thesteve0 We would love to have you back out for a geospatial talk. It might be early next year just to make room for other folks, but you are definitely on the "welcome back at DOSUG" list. :grinning:

@thesteve0 Wanted you to know you left quite an impression. Folks at KForce were talking about the interactivity and quality of your DOSUG visit. So appreciative of your flight, travel, and talk!

Matthew McCullough

@thesteve0 @ghessler of the Colorado Springs User Group would love to talk to you about a speech at his group as well. It meets on a different cycle and date than our DOSUG, but I wanted to make the intro here and then let you gents take it to a new discussion via email or such...

Gary Hessler

Hi @thesteve0,

Can you drop me an e-mail at ghessler@gmail.com and let me know if you could do a presentation for us sometime? I can provide available dates and you can let me know what might work for you.

Thanks,

Gary
