Well, here we are at the end of the summer, and it’s been four months since my last post. There’s no real need to give you a bunch of details on what’s been going on, but here’s a quick summary:
I’ve been writing quite a bit of code.
That’s it. Between my new day job (more on that later), and a couple of side projects, I’ve hardly any time to blog. Still, there’s no time like the present to pick up my pen and do a daily brain dump on the dealings of the day. With that, here goes:

I’m 100% engaged in the upstream OpenStack community project(s). At my new gig at HP (yes, HP), the marching orders are to “Make OpenStack better”, which is a tall task. However, I’m up for the challenge.
What this means is that my blog posts will begin to highlight cloud technologies, particularly Service Oriented Architectures (IaaS, PaaS) that interest me, and right now, that’s OpenStack and Apache Mesos .
OpenStack is familiar to me- after being introduced to it a few years ago, it’s held my interest for several years. However, Apache Mesos is also very interesting. I recently requested to be added as a contributor to the project, so that I can begin digging into the code, understanding how it works, and making this project better as well.
Well, what about 180Days? I’m not sure yet. Right now, I’m working on enough code to keep my sword sharp, so I’ve yet to really think about how to reboot the challenge. Let me think about it. In the meantime, watch me work…
