Silicon Valley Meetup at Facebook, September 2015


Facebook hosted a great crowd on Monday, September 14, in Silicon Valley with about 30 attendees and a full night of presentations about Gluster.

We started by introducing our new Gluster Community Lead, Amye Scavarda. You’ll see her a lot more in the coming months promoting Gluster and the Gluster community.

The talks started with the future: where Gluster is moving with GlusterNext, led by Jeff Darcy.

    The initial rounds of conversation around the planning of content for release 8 has helped the project identify one key thing – the need to stagger out features and enhancements over multiple releases.
