Gordon's Hafftime #11: Open source in government & CRI-O


Gordon Haff

October 18 · Issue #11 · View online

I'm a technology evangelist at Red Hat where I deal with topics such as containers, DevOps, cloud strategy, and IoT. Those will be the primary focus of this newsletter but I'll also use it to highlight generally interesting links and to provide updates on my comings and goings.


It’s been a while. I’ve been traveling and working on some internal projects which have led to me sort of getting out of routine writing. I’m taking some time to get caught up and organized this month but have some more events in November. Here’s what’s on deck.
I’ll be speaking at CloudExpo Silicon Valley (Santa Clara) on Optimizing the Ops in DevOps the first week in November. I have faculty guest passes for anyone who would like one. Feel free to drop me a line. 
Given that I’ll be on the West Coast already, I’m going to head up to the inaugural CloudNativeCon the following week. This event is run by the Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation and will cover kubernetes among other topics.
At the end of November, I’m headed off to one of my less favorite cities, Las Vegas, for Amazon re:Invent. At least it’s back at a decent time of year, in terms of weather, for visiting Las Vegas. This is always a good event and I’ve come to see it as one of the centers of gravity for discussions of new technologies and where they’re headed. Overall, new technology creation is happening in a much more distributed, grassroots, and open source way than used to be the case. But Amazon is certainly the standard-bearer for the public cloud face of Computing Next.
I’m also getting started with another year of Red Hat Summit planning. We’re back in Boston this year and bit earlier (May 2-4). The call for proposals is now live. Consider submitting something!
