Foreman's birthday / 1.12 release celebrations - July 2016

Hi all (apologies for the cross-post)

[TLDR - events are happening in July; stay tuned & help create more]

In a few weeks time (13th July to be precise), Foreman will be 7 years old.
Taken alongside the upcoming 1.12 release (slated for the start of July,
but no promises, of course) and the included Puppet 4 support, I think we
need to make some noise :wink:

I've started to try an organise some regional in-person events to celebrate
our communities efforts (and success!) with meetups, install days, talks
etc. in the latter half of July. We only have a few weeks to go, so I'm
asking for your help!

To kick things off, I am going to be giving a Foreman talk at Edinburgh
Techmeetup on our actual birthday (score!) July 13th. With some luck, this
should be livestreamed, and I'll be sure to share the details with you all
once I know more.

After that, I have leads for events in east-coast US, Germany, and Israel,
although nothing is 100% confirmed yet. I'll be sure to share the details
on the mailing list and on Foreman :: Foreman Events as usual.

So, where do I need help? Well, firstly, I want MORE events! If you want to
have a local meetup, or hold some kind of hands-on event at any time
between July 14th-31st, get in touch! I'll do everything I can to help you
get that promoted and off the ground. If you already run a meetup, and
would like a speaker, I can help find you one. If you'd like to speak and
need an event to speak at, again, I can help match you up. All things are
possible :slight_smile:

Secondly, spread the word! We have a fantastic community around a fantastic
project, and we should all be proud of that. Let's make some noise in our
local communities about the awesome tools we use :slight_smile:

Here's to a great 7th birthday (in the making)!

As an update to this, I've now created
Foreman which details all the planned
events. We have confirmed:

  • Talk in Edinburgh by me
  • Meetup in Belgium (thanks Julien!)
  • Meetup / half-day conference in Germany (thanks Dirk & NETWAYS!)
  • Meetup in Washington DC (thanks Chris!)

Still awaiting confirmation of the Israel event, but that's looking likely.
As we get closer to each one, I'll put separate emails out to the list and
to Twitter so that people see them. Do come along and meet other Foreman
users/devs.

I'm open to more events if anyone wants to plan one - get in touch. It's
looking like an awesome birthday already!

Cheers!
Greg

Are there any Foreman users around Boston/Providence who might be
interested in something?

I do know that there's an oVirt Boston group, maybe some overlap there?
