Lyon (Europe - France) community meetup around Open Source Summit Europe (Halloween '19)

Matt has announced he’s gonna be presenting NRE Labs (https://osseu19.sched.com/event/TLFe/learning-automation-without-barriers-using-antidote-and-nre-labs-matt-oswalt-juniper-networks) at the forecoming Open Source Summit Europe in Lyon this fall (https://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/open-source-summit-europe-2019/).

I thought it could be great to have some gathering of interested folks there, to take the opportunity of Matt visiting Europe.

Maybe Lyon wouldn’t be the best place if people are more comfortable with another city and Matt isn’t flying directly to Lyon and back ? I myself is closer to Paris :wink:

I could try and help coordinate a bit and provide french locale for local organization.

I hadn’t planned myself to go to the OpenSource Summit Europe, but I may (academic discount seems possible).

It probably depends on Matt’s traveling schedule.

The summit’s dates are 28-30 october, and Matt’s speech is on 29th.

Please declare your interest with +1’s ?

Just a quick report on what happened in Lyon.

First, Matt and I met, and we discussed lots of Antidote ideas, mainly around MP1 and MP4. It was nice, as you can guess from https://twitter.com/NRELabs/status/1189192666765873154/photo/1

Then, Matt made a presentation (https://twitter.com/olberger/status/1189207252126896131/photo/1 ) about the project, which ressembles the slides that can be found here : https://github.com/nre-learning/nre-resources/blob/master/NRE%20Labs%20-%20OSS%20NA.pdf
I must admit that the audience wasn’t really crowded, but eh, those events have so many parallel tracks, etc.

One good thing with meeting Matt is that I got lots of NRELabs stickers and business cards, which I’ll be able to distribute :wink:

I’ve discussed the project with some people, like with Eric Adams from Intel who presented the KataContainers project at OSSummit.

Looking forward to meet more project members in the next conferences :slight_smile:
