SIGs - Special Interest Groups - are where people work on the stuff that runs on top of CentOS.
Several of our SIGs published their quarterly reports this month:
- CentOS NFV SIG - https://blog.centos.org/2019/01/centos-nfv-sig-quarterly-report/
- Promotion SIG - https://blog.centos.org/2019/01/promo-sig-quarterly-report-february-2019/
- Platform as a Service (PaaS) SIG - https://blog.centos.org/2019/01/centos-paas-sig-quarterly-report/
Next month we hope to hear from:
- Cloud Instance
- Public CI
We started off February with a bang, with our annual CentOS Dojo at FOSDEM. You can read a summary of that event on the CentOS blog. We will be posting video from the event on the CentOS YouTube channel as soon as possible.
We also had a table at FOSDEM itself. FOSDEM is a gathering of 6000 free/open source software enthusiasts at Brussel's ULB. Topics covered are everything from distributions to licensing to community to storage. Video from almost every session at the event is already available at the event website.
Next month, we expect to have a presence at FOSSAsia in Singapore.
And in April we are planning to hold a Dojo at Oak Ridge National Labs, in Oak Ridge Tennessee.
If you would like to host a Dojo, or have a suggestion for where we should have one, please get in touch with the CentOS Promo mailing list.
Other upcoming events are always listed on the events wiki page.
