Our next Dojo is going to be taking place at Madrid on the 8th Nov
2013. Details on the venue and registration are on the wiki page at

As has now become tradition, the Dojo will start at 9:30am and will
run through to just after 5pm localtime. At which point some of us
will decamp to a watering hole for drinks.

On the day we have:

Jaime Melis talking about KVM and Clouds built on KVM (with OpenNebula)

Luis Fernando Muñoz Mejías is doing two talks, based on his experience
at the Gent University. The first one is on and around yum used across
large number of machines, their lessons learnt and challenges
encountered. His second talk is about Quattor and Aquilon, tools that
help with life cycle management - with some very interesting features
like policy based config state.

Lorenzo Martínez Rodríguez is going to be talking about begining steps
on CentOS security and how one might secure a CentOS machine for some
typical roles, and briefly touching on topics like audit, logs and

Xavier Gonzalez is going to be showing off Viapps, a tool they have
been working on to manage CentOS servers for typical services and
tasks but treating the server as an appliance.

And I will be doing a talk on the CentOS Project, the road ahead - the
big things that we are working on and the plans for the next 6 to 8

We will also have an open space session, anyone is welcome to come up
and talk about something they care about, or anything they have a
problem with and are looking for advice - even if there are things
that the CentOS project and CentOS Linux might be able to do better;
or show off some tools or project they have been working on that is
related to CentOS or runs on CentOS.
