Sydney Puppet Users Group does Openstack

This is a combined Puppet & Openstack meetup so we can all meet, listen to an awesome talk, and discuss some of the best use cases.

This is cross posted to the Australian Open Stack User Group, please RSVP only to one of the events, so we can cater appropriately.

Agenda

6pm doors open for drinks and introductions.

6:30pm Michael Chapman - How to build your own OpenStack distro using community Puppet Modules

Michael will demonstrate how to build an OpenStack distro from scratch using the  community OpenStack Puppet modules. In an interactive session with the audience, we’re going to pick a Linux distro, use the roles + profiles pattern, use Hiera to populate data, and build up a complete OpenStack cluster inside VMs running the OpenStack Identity, Image, Compute and Networking services. Although there are vendor tools available that can assist with this process, such as Fuel, Cisco OpenStack Installer and Aptira's own Stacktira, understanding how the modules fit together will allow an operator to easily add their own customisations to the any of these systems.

Michael has been working in the cloud computing space, both in a research and enterprise context for several years, with OpenStack production experience stretching all the way back to the third release, 'Cactus'. He leads the Aptira software engineering team in developing deployment and operations tools for OpenStack. Michael is a maintainer of and a driving force behind the most widely used OpenStack deployment tool set, Puppet-OpenStack. He holds a Bachelor of Software Engineering with Honours from Australian National University and is regularly invited back to his alma mater to guest lecture.

As always, we invite and need member participation. These Meetups are a great place to take your first step at public speaking. Fantastic from a personal development perspective, and also helpful to get your name on the map ;) What do they say...9->5 to survive, after 5 to thrive!

Let us know what topics are of interest, and then come and join us!

    Does anyone know of a good lead Linux/RedHat engineer who is actually available? A client of mine is looking. They are a pretty cool hi-tech company and the role pays v well. Dan[masked]

      A note to the other recruiters. Dan approached me yesterday to make sure this is OK.

    Bit of a hitch getting the new OpenStackAU youtube account running. Just waiting on some DNS domain validation via the Foundation's DNS providor so I can complete the account sign up process.

    a couple of things that fell out for me last night:

    * love the crossover idea. cd/puppet/openstack etc. aren't mutually exclusive, you use them together, so crossovers make a lot of sense. Moar!

    * while I'm not confident enough to present to my peers yet, I still work with this kind of stuff every day, so pitching the event at n00bs is good, but it makes it hard for me to find motivation to come along. Perhaps newbies could be "bootstrapped" with some pre-reading and then the meetup can delve deeper

      The idea of a few bootstrapping vids (perhaps) sounds like a good idea. This would allow to present at a slight higher technical level.

      Always difficult to get the balance right.. I've post this up as a question on the Sydney Puppet Users Google Group for further discussion - https://groups.google....­

      timing of pizza was awesome. By the time it came, I was over-hungry & so ate too much, which forced me to walk ~10km home to try to work some of it off == walking is good for me :)

      I stayed too long and missed the last train by 3 minutes. talked the taxi driver down from $220 to $150 but that's still ridiculous for 30 min drive.

    Thanks everyone for your support. The code used today is here: https://github.com/michaeltchapman/byopenstack and is essentially a very stripped down version of this: https://github.com/stackforge/puppet_openstack_builder

      You're hilarious Alan. Might be time to get your glasses prescription checked though, this is the Puppet users group :) Feel free to propose your talk to the Devops group. Or the Openstack group for that matter.
