Event description

Description

The UKRI Cloud Working Group (https://cloud.ac.uk/) is organising a technical workshop “unconference”. Following feedback from our annual cloud workshop in January, some members of the community expressed the desire to have a technical deep dive into some of the topics. We have created this event to provide just this opportunity and enable researchers, devops and developer to work together and share collective experience.

We’re adopting an "unconference" format, which means other than 2 talks (Stig Tefler from StackHPC and Martin O'Reilly from the Turing Institute), we won’t have a fixed agenda ahead of time: everyone will be invited to give a short pitch at the start of the day on a technical topic of their choice. We will then vote on those they want to devote time to explore in depth. We’ll have several breakout type rooms available so we can discuss several topics if necessary. Different approaches could be applied for each topic, for example

  • a hackathon where groups can focus on solving a specific problem or creating a piece of software or infrastructure configuration, or
  • information sharing and pooling expertise with a technical deep-dive walk through a particular technology.

Topics could cover anything from use and deployment of OpenStack, container technologies, integration of storage, application of services and API from public clouds, tools for monitoring and logging or your other suggestions.

Who should attend?

Those people who have a technical interest in deploying cloud and cloud related services to support research workloads. You will also have some experience of coding and/or using cloud computing infrastructure. You should also be prepared to get involved in the sessions and discussion including leading topics.

What do you need to bring?

Make sure to bring a laptop!

Tea and coffee will be provided in the breaks but you will need to buy or bring your own lunch.
