Neutron Tempest code sprint
In the second week of January in Montreal, Quebec, Canadathere will be a
Neutron Tempest code sprint to improve the status of Neutron tests in
Tempest and to add new tests.
It will be a 3 day event. Right now there are 14 peoplewho came forward
when it was announced on the Friday at the summit. We need to know how
many additional people are interested in attending.
This is an impromptu event based on my assessment of the need for this
to happen, so don't feel left out if you didn't know about it in advance.
We picked Montreal for two main reasons:
1. All 4 people whose attendance is critical (markmclain, salv-orlando,
sdague and mtrenish) can get there. It was New York or Montreal.
2. I can't think in New York, love it, can't compose a thought, so
Montreal it is.
It turns out this location choice has some resultant effects:
1. People who wouldn't have time to get a visa to attend an event in the
States have an easier time entering Canada.
US requires visa applications filed 2 months in advance of travel
and we are inside that timeframe.
2. Montreal is cheaper than NYC.
3. Being Canadian it is going to be easier for me to produce this event
in Canada since I am in Canada.
4. It will be cold. We had few choices on the timing and this event
can't wait on good weather.
There is no location that will make everyone happy, so people will be
disappointed by this choice and I accept that. It is my hope that this
event is a success and we can create a schedule of some sort so that
people who have a high possibility of attending can vote on the
location. So that is the future vision.
I have a tenative hold on a venue and am working on getting a rate on a
block of rooms at a hotel.
I am preparing a budget to submit to the Foundation in the hopes they
will sponsor the event. Since this was planned with no warning, the
Foundation has no budget for it. Mark is supportive of the event
happening and if I can come up with some reasonable numbers, I hope that
the money can come from the Foundation.
The event will be vendor neutral. We will talk to each other based on
who we are and our interests, not based on who signs our paycheque. If
folks arrive with logoed shirts (I don't know which logos are work logos
and which aren't, so I will request no logos please) I will issue you a
white T-shirt to wear. We need to work collaboratively to effectlvely
make progress during the code sprint.
Someone at the summit choose not to wear footwear at the event. If you
want to come to the code sprint please plan on wearing appropriate
footwear in the public areas at the code sprint. For two reasons:
1. It will be cold.
2. The event is meant to facilitate mutual respect between us to
increase communication, both at the event and afterwards. I feel wearing
appropriate footwear supports this goal.
Please indicate your interest by sending an email to
anteaya at anteaya.info, subject "Neutron Tempest code sprint". Don't worry
about the body of the email, I just need addresses. We will send out
subsequent emails to this group to gather specific details like shirt
size, dietary requirements. If you came forward at the summit, no need
to email again.
If you want to come, but don't feel your employer will fund the trip,
please include that information in the email. It will depend on what we
can do for accomodation and travel but hopefully we will have a little
bit for a few folks. Of course please talk to your manager now to work
on getting approval to attend, and hopefully your employeer will fund
your travel and accomodation.
Additional questions? Hit me up on irc in #openstack-neutron nick
