Cloud CI with James Maniotis - First commit to the deployment of a full cloud

Hi All,

I'm thrilled to announce the inaugural CloudOps meetup!

CloudOps meetup will be a monthly gathering to discuss issues, trends, and ideas in and around the areas of implementation, operation and security of cloud infrastructure, devops and continuous delivery.

Our sponsors will provide the pizza, beer, and projector. You bring the hard questions.

The first installment will be happening at 6:30PM on Tuesday, November 19th. Here's what we have planned:


6:30 - 7:00 -- Doors open/ general socializing & food
7:00 - 7:15 -- Introductions & announcements
7:15 - 8:00 -- Presentation - James Maniotis
8:00 - 8:30 -- Q&A
8:30 - 9:30 -- General socializing

Presentation Abstract:

Coincidence plays small part in the emergent development patterns required for creating OpenStack-based clouds. The "continuous integration" (CI) paradigm yields a path through the overwhelming complexity of development: from the first commit to the deployment of a full cloud. Individuals and organizations can mutually benefit by adapting to a CI ecosystem based on tools largely mature and ubiquitous.

James will talk about some of the stresses of adapting to CI as well as guidelines to reduce that stress while testing, automating, and integrating your software.

About the Presenter:

James Maniotis built continuous testing/integration/deployment system used across development, QA, and production environments at CloudScaling.

    We had a great turn out at our meetup this Tuesday with great presentation and conversations after. I want to thank our sponsor Lithium for providing the venue space, food (not pizza), and drinks (tiki bar). Also, thanks to all of you for showing up and James from CloudScaling for the awesome presentation.
