The ManageIQ Design Summit - a small intimate gathering of cloud experts

We’re happy to announce the preliminary agenda for the upcoming ManageIQ Design Summit, a 2-day event on October 7 & 8 in Montvale, NJ. Be sure to RSVP soon, as space is very limited. As mentioned in the title, it’s a small intimate gathering of cloud experts, those interested in pushing the limits of ManageIQ and setting the roadmap for development. If you’re a ManageIQ user who wants to learn how to make the most of its automation and orchestration capabilities, then there will be plenty for you, too:

Planning the "B" Release

Now that the Anand release is almost out the door, it’s the right time to turn our attention to the next release. Since we’re going alphabetically by chess world champions, we have a few choices:

Anand Release Candidate

Things have been rolling along here at the ManageIQ community, and we’re proud to announce that the first release candidate is now ready. The first release for ManageIQ is called “Anand”, named after world champion chess player Viswanathan Anand.

To download a release candidate build of Anand, proceed to the download page. To get the source for Anand, see the tagged GitHub repo.

To get an idea of what is included in Anand, see the results of the previous sprint. To see what is coming next, take a look at the roadmap.

Enjoy! Remember, if you find any issues, please report them.

Integration with Travis CI

When we originally open-sourced ManageIQ, the ManageIQ GitHub Repo was integrated with Code Climate. Integrating with Code Climate allowed the developer community to find code with too much complexity and/or duplication and refactor it.

This week, we integrated the ManageIQ GitHub Repo with Travis CI, the continuous integration service. This service runs on each GitHub pull request to ensure that no new code is breaking existing tests (i.e. no regression). If the pull request does cause a regression, the core maintainers of the ManageIQ project will not merge it until this is resolved.

So, keep creating pull requests to make ManageIQ better, but make sure that they do not break any tests!

Thanks, chessbyte

The Third Tenet of Open Source

Here’s a great introduction written by Bryan Che, a Red Hat cloud strategy guy, on why we released ManageIQ as an open source project, as well as a look at the cloud management landscape. Cloud management is currently a nice car with four flat tires, and all four of them with different sizes, colors, and recommended pressure.
