Description

UPDATE

Based on the input from the community, board, and the latest information available from the health experts, we've made the decision not to hold the OpenDev + PTG in Vancouver this June. Instead, we're exploring ways to turn it into a virtual event and would love the help of everyone in the community to make it a success.


We would like to virtualize the PTG, since it is critical to producing the next release, targeting the same timeframe. We would like to recruit community volunteers to form a Virtual PTG Organization Team to collaborate with the OSF staff to incorporate current best practices and ensure the event continues to meet the goals of the upstream community. We will need to begin pulling this plan together soon, so please add your name to this list if you are interested in participating: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Virtual_PTG_Planning

For OpenDev, discussions are meant to be collaborative and free-flowing but are less time bound by the release schedule, so rather than trying to recreate that during a single virtual event at the same time as the virtual PTG, we are thinking about other ways to accomplish the same goals. We've already assembled an awesome team of Program Committee volunteers who have received proposals for moderated discussions, and we will be working with them on some ideas on the best way to move forward.

We will continue to post updates on the OSF response to coronavirus here: https://www.openstack.org/events/covid-19-coronavirus-disease-updates

OpenDev + PTG is a collaborative event organized by the OpenStack Foundation (OSF) gathering developers, system architects, and operators to address common open source infrastructure challenges.


What to expect?

Each day will be broken into three parts:

  • Short kickoff with all attendees to set the goals for the day or discuss the outcomes of the previous day. Think of this like a mini-keynote, challenging your thoughts around the topic areas before you head into real collaborative sessions.

  • OpenDev: Morning discussions covering projects like Airship, Ansible, Ceph, Kata Containers, Kubernetes, OpenStack, StarlingX, Zuul and more centered around one of four different topics:

    • Hardware automation

    • Large-scale usage of open source infrastructure software

    • Containers in Production

    • Key challenges for open source in 2020

  • PTG: Afternoon working sessions for project teams and SIGs to continue the morning’s discussions.

There will be a wrap up with all attendees to discuss the week’s work and any outstanding questions or calls to action.

Why should you and your organization participate?

Together, the discussions held at OpenDev + PTG are critical to the open source advancements addressing current challenges around hardware automation, scale, containers, and the overall open source ecosystem. If you want to influence the direction and future of open infrastructure, join the community and participate in this event.

OpenDev is structured to have an impact on future development and integration efforts, achieved by collaboratively produced deliverables to share back with the industry and open source communities. The event will include discussion oriented sessions around a particular topic to explore a problem within a topic area, share common architectures, and collaborate around potential solutions.

The conversations will continue into the afternoon with the Project Teams Gathering (PTG). This is when the morning’s practices will be explored by project teams and SIGs who will have dedicated space to get work done in a productive setting. This event maximizes the ability of contributors to work through their project objectives in an environment that is focused towards work and productivity. Getting all team members together throughout the year allows them to build the amount of shared understanding and trust that is necessary to successfully cooperate and achieve team objectives over the next six months. The PTG events are critically important to the software development process.
