Hi all, long time no blog. But with the recent announcement of the Linux Kongress 2008 program, which will happen in my chosen home city Hamburg from 7th to 10th October, I have to share the joy:
Not one, but three tutorials - both in English and German - explaining how to use Linux-HA with the CRM/Pacemaker as an high-availability cluster environment.
Congratulations and thanks to Ralph Dehner, Lars Ellenberg, Joerg Jungermann, Maximilian Wilhelm!
Also, a brief talk by myself on the future of HA on Linux, fresh from the Cluster Developer Summit in Prag.
All in all, Linux Kongress has a very, very strong program this year, and I look forward to meeting you all in Hamburg - bring your umbrella!
I also look forward in particular to the First Penguin Award candidates: the price for the most daring failure. Failure is crucial to success; learning where the boundaries of our models and theories are is the foundation of science, and successful design. Only by anticipating and overcoming failure is success possible. If you doubt this for a single moment, read Petroski: Success through failure.
As a member of the panel and obsessed with things going wrong, I hope your project contributes to our knowledge; and the most valuable lesson of the whole week just could be learned from showing what does not work. And, there will be a price too! How good is that?
