18 – 22 October skipped from the close of the OSMC to the preparations for the OSDC and ended on the OpenSUSE, with a quick detour into Business Process Monitoring Addons’ integration into Icinga Web.
Manuela celebrated the success of the Open Source Monitoring Conference 2010 with a few statistics. For the attendees from all over Europe, 22 speeches, 4 workshops, 1 intensive workshop and an AR Drone, ensured that there was something everyone. Thanks to Linux Magazine, the presentations where streamed live and are now available in their archives to view with the attendee area of the OSMC website opening soon. Final thanks also go to Thomas Krenn, and all speakers and attendees for making the event the success it was – we hope to see you at the next OSMC on 29 – 30 November 2011.
From one conference to another, Manuela jumped to the Open Source Data Center Conference to come on 6 – 7 April 2011 in Nuremberg. In its 3rd year, it will also highlight ‘Automated Systems Management’ with focused presentations and practical case studies. In line with this, 2 workshops on ‘Configuration Management with Puppet- Advanced’ and ‘ITSM Reporting with Jasper’ will be held on the OSDC eve 5 April with restricted class sizes for intensive learning. The Call for Papers for interested speakers and early bird specials for registrations till 28 February 2011 are both currently open and welcome to all.
Finally, Bernd reported from the 2nd International OpenSUSE Conference which gathered many active developers in Nuremberg to discuss new ideas and the future course of the OpenSUSE project. For the first time, NETWAYS was actively there with a presentation on ‘Open Source Monitoring with Icinga‘ that received much interest. In return Bernd was also reassured by many there, that the old rumours of YaST messing up configurations and Russian roulette-like package installations are now history.
