OSU Open Source Lab

Come See the OSUOSL at OSCON 2011

by OSUOSL Admin on Fri, Jul 22 2011

It's that time of year again in Portland, Oregon. It's sunny and warm - well, it is today - and the annual OSCON conference is just around the corner. The OSU Open Source Lab team will be participating in several activities at the conference, and we hope to meet some new folks, introduce them to the lab and our offerings to the open source community, and catch up with old friends. Here's what we're up to at OSCON 2011:

Community Leadership Summit

Several team members will be attending the Community Leadership Summit this weekend, including our Director, Curt Pederson, our Lead Developer, Peter Krenesky, our Outreach Manager, Leslie Hawthorn and our Public Sector Communities Manager, Deb Bryant. We're looking forward to meeting up with our fellow attendees and sharing collective knowledge about effective community care and feeding. Registration is still open and admission is free of charge, so if you hadn't planned to attend, there's still time to change your mind!


Our dynamic duo - Lead Systems Administrator/Architect Lance Albertson and Peter Krenesky - will be holding two sessions at OSCON, one tutorial and one talk:

You'll need to have registered to attend the tutorial, but the talk is open to all those who have an OSCON sessions pass.

Expo Hall

Come visit us at Booth 218 in Expo Hall D. We'll be demoing our home grown open source project, Ganeti Web Manager, and giving the community updates about our Supercell testing cluster. Better still, we have awesome new OSL swag to hand out. But wait, there's more - our stellar student employees will be on hand to talk about their roles at the OSL, the projects they're working on and how the OSL has better prepared them for their future careers in industry. Make sure to stop by!

Puppet Labs Party

Our friends at Puppet Labs have graciously invited us to attend their party and tell attendees more about the OSL. Attendees will be treated to free libations served in OSL beer mugs. Join us at Puppet Labs' HQ in the Pearl District at 8:00 PM on Tuesday, July 26th. No registration is required to attend, and you can find full details, including address information, on the OSCON site. The best part? You get to keep the awesome mug. Thanks once again to Puppet Labs for inviting us to be part of their soiree!

We're looking forward to seeing you at these events or just hanging out with you in the hallway track!
