Thanks for being part of the RDO community!
There's several events on the horizon that you should be aware of.
This week, LinuxCon Europe
<http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/linuxcon-europe> will be held
in Berlin, Germany, and RDO will be there. Drop by the Red Hat booth for
RDO stickers, and to find out more about RDO and OpenStack. Christian
Schwede will be speaking about OpenStack Swift <http://sched.co/7o9Z>,
and will be available at the booth afterwards to answer your questions.
If you can't make it to Berlin, you can watch the live video feed
OpenStack Summit and the RDO Community Meetup
In just a few weeks, many of us will be in Barcelona for the OpenStack
Summit <https://www.openstack.org/summit>. The summit, which will be
held on October 25th through 28th, is where we will celebrate the Newton
release, and begin planning for the Ocata release.
While there, we'll be having the RDO community meetup, in conjunction
with the Ceph community. We'll be gathering at the Barcelona Princess
Tuesday evening, the 25th, from 5pm to 8pm, for presentations about RDO
and Ceph, as well as light refreshments and drinks. If you have
something you'd like to present on for 5-10 minutes, please get in touch
with me as soon as possible.
We're also pleased to note that over 40 of our colleagues in the RDO
talks accepted at the Summit, on a wide variety of topics, many directly
related to their work on RDO.
And we'll be in the Red Hat booth in the main exhibit hall. Come get
your RDO duck <https://www.rdoproject.org/blog/2015/10/ducks/>.

great blog posts over the past month.
*Our Cloud in Liberty* by Tim Bell
The upgrade to Liberty for the CERN cloud was completed at the end
of August. Working with the upstream OpenStack, Puppet and RDO
communities, this went pretty smoothly without any issues so there
is no significant advice to report.

*Complex data transformations with nested Heat intrinsic functions* by

depending your your viewpoint ;) But it's based on a real use-case
and it works, so I'm posting this to document the approach, why it's
needed, and hopefully stimulate some discussion around optimizations
leading to a improved/simplified implementation in the future.
