Important happenings in Gluster:

Come see us at DevConf and FOSDEM!

Gluster has a big presence at both DevConf.CZ (https://devconf.cz/schedule.html) as well as FOSDEM! We’ll be exhibiting at FOSDEM with a Gluster stand, and we’ve got an Open Source Software DevRoom. Our schedule for FOSDEM: https://fosdem.org/2017/schedule/track/software_defined_storage/  

 

Our weekly community meeting has changed: we’ll be meeting every other week instead of weekly, moving the time to 15:00 UTC, and our agenda is at: https://bit.ly/gluster-community-meetings

We hope this means that more people can join us. Kaushal outlines the changes on the mailing list: http://lists.gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-devel/2017-January/051918.html  

Our annual community survey has closed, thanks to everyone who participated!

We’ll be posting the results as part of the official January newsletter, along with recordings of the talks at DevConf and FOSDEM.
