6:30PM – Welcome & OpenStack 8th Birthday Updates by Sunku Ranganath, OpenStack-PDX Organizer

7PM – Intro to StarlingX by Bruce E Jones, Intel Corporation
Speaker Bio: Bruce is the Program Manager for StarlingX for Intel. Before starting work on this OpenStack based project he did some wireless work on that other operating system. Before that he managed teams working on the Linux kernel and on the Xen hypervisor.

7:30PM - How to start contributing to open source by Michal Jastrzebski, Intel Corporation
Abstract: Starting contributing to open source can be frightening. Every contribution is a public display and we are all aware of our ignorance. In this talk I would like to propose several ways how to effectively integrate ourselves into open source communities and how to quickly become effective and helpful contributors to open source projects and communities.
Speaker Bio: Michal is engineer at Intel, who recently stepped down from Project Technical Leader role in OpenStack Kolla project. Actively worked with OpenStack communities for more than 5 years and recently moved to Kubernetes community as contributor to Kubeflow project.

8PM - Network Reliability Engineering - Automation’s North Star by Matthew Oswalt, Juniper Networks
Abstract: For years we’ve heard the mantra - automation is the future of network operations. However, if we’re being honest, automation can be another one of “those words” - meaning something totally different depending on who you’re talking to. It’s time to up-level this conversation and talk about automation within the context of a new way of running network operations - Network Reliability Engineering. How can we use automation to make our networks more reliable, instead of focusing only on short-term gains?
Through real-life examples, we’ll examine the shift to an NRE culture and DevNetOps behaviors that embody the role: networks as code, microservices and immutable infrastructure, CI/CD, chaos engineering, and continuous measurement and response. We’ll talk about how you can structure your existing automation practice, or perhaps kick-start a new one, for maximum effectiveness by leveraging Reliability Engineering principles.

8:30PM – Lightening Talks (5 minutes each) by Vancouver BC Summit attendees & Close
