Quick update for those of you following the Xen API Community project – I am close to having a Xen developer from Citrix confirmed for our next meeting to answer questions about the API specifications. Since Xen Summit is coming up, I am planning on having this 2nd project meeting the last week of June or first week of July. I will update the Blog as well as the Xen API Project page on the Wiki: http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenApi with the meeting information.
128 people are now registered for Xen Summit in 2 weeks and I look forward to meeting with everyone in Boston. As a reminder, online registration will close next Monday, June 16 at noon (PDT). All registration after that time will be onsite beginning Saturday, June 21, 5-7pm and then Sunday, June 22, 7:30am – 5pm and so on.
You can register online at https://db.usenix.org/cgi-bin/Conference/xen08/reg.cgi.
Congrats to the authors of Running Xen for having a book review on slashdot…
Here it is, the final (is it every final) Xen Summit Boston Agenda along with a separate document containing the topic abstracts.
Extended abstracts on topics being presented at http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/Open_Topics_For_Discussion.
A big thanks for the incredible efforts of the Xen Summit Program Committee in putting together this exciting event. Looking forward to meeting everyone in a few weeks in Boston.
The Program Committee for Xen Summit Boston has almost completed the creation of the event agenda and it should be available for public consumption tomorrow afternoon (EST). As there was a limited number of speaking slots available, several interesting and worthwhile topics had to be rejected for the event.
To ensure that the community still receives the information and is given a chance to comment, I have created a new Wiki site for posting of presentations that will not be given at Xen Summit in Boston: http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/Open_Topics_For_Discussion.
The speakers who were not selected will be posting their content on this Wiki for community discussion.
I received a request from a Xen Summit attendee looking for a roommate to share the hotel costs in Boston. If you are interested, please send me an email and I will put you in touch with that person.
