This week, LinuxCon Europe will

OpenStack Summit and the
RDO Community Meetup
In just a few weeks, many of us will be in Barcelona for
the OpenStack 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 on 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 project have 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.

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

Complex data transformations
with nested Heat intrinsic functions by Steve Hardy
follows is either pretty neat, or pure-evil depending your your
viewpoint ;) But it's based on a real use-case and it works, so
