BoostYourCode: Concours INRIA

Boost your codeL'INRIA, par la voix de Stéphane Ribas vient d'annoncer qu'elle a créé le concours "Boost your code", qui est l'opportunité pour des étudiants de présenter leurs projet à un jury de scientifiques et de professionnels. Avec à la clé, un contrat d'un an pour développer le projet au sein de l'Institut: Ce n'est pas un pas un poisson d'Avril!
 
Le projet présenté sera évalué sur sa valeur technique, son utilité sociale, son originalité et son caractère innovant par un jury composé, entre autres, de l'INRIA, de Roberto Di Cosmo et d'un représentant de l'éditeur d'Ubuntu, Canonical (ndr: normallement ce dervait être moi).  Le lauréat pourra développer son idée en bénéficiant du soutien de l'institut, dans le cadre d’un CDD de douze mois. 

Open Cloud track at the Open World Forum

The third Open World Forum – which will happen in Paris on 30 September and 1 October 2010 – will bring together open technology decision-makers from around the world, under the banner of Open Innovation and Free / Open Source. Some 1,500 participants from 40 countries are expected to attend, to cross-fertilize initiatives and map out the digital future (the 2010 version of the site was put online yesterday, if you are interested in the other tracks).

This year the committee asked me to join them in helping David Sapiro put together the Open Cloud track, and I am very happy to announce that this is now complete.  We may have a couple additional late comers that will be added, but I think we now have what looks likes an excellent speaker list that will allow us to go quite far in our panels and think-tank.

Ubuntu Party aujourd'hui à Toulouse

Je suis invité aujourd'hui à l'Ubuntu Party de Toulouse ou je viens de présenter deux conférences.  Comme à Paris la semaine dernière, le public est très nombreux à avoir répondu à l'appel de Toulibre et Ubuntu-fr, cela fait vraiment plaisir.

Comme promis aux auditeurs de mes présentations, voici les transparents que j'ai utilisés :

The 2009 Ubuntu Server Edition survey is out

The Ubuntu Server Team wants to know how you use Ubuntu Server in day-to-day operations to help the team prioritize the support and development of future Ubuntu Server Editions.  This is the second edition of this initiative which was first introduced in 2008. It has now been extended to include more cloud related questions.

More Ubuntu Server Edition statistics

Some people may say that I am a statistics junky... Well that's certainly true! But what do you want, being a product manager for a product that does not require ANY form of user registration, you have a tendancy to cling to any piece of data you may find that shows that you are not working in vain. Indeed, and to the opposite of most, if not all, of our competitors, we have absolutely no way to determine what is our install base.  We don't control our mirors, we don't have any ping back home mechanisms, and we are not considering adding any.  So, here I am, collecting as much information I can from outside sources...

Well, october was not too bad in that sense:
