Openstack Summit

Still a bit tired from the trip. Started monday with some documentation talks by Anne Gentle. The doc guys are using wadl to create api docs, but Swift doesn’t have one. I’m starting to think that there has to be an easier way to do discovery and documentation of APIs. We ventured out a bit and got some coffee from Blue Bottle coffee. I had some brazillian beans and they used the coffee siphon.

RoadStack RV Trip

Well we made it. 29 hours of driving through El Paso, Phoenix, LA and to San Francisco. I’m exhausted but it was a great trip. We had a pretty good vision of what we wanted to do. I don’t think we did as much work as we initially envisioned. The Clear modem didn’t work for most of the trip and our cell coverage was pretty spotty. I drove through a pretty gnarly sandstorm outside El Paso, the steering wheel was at a 45° angle or more due to the wind.

Foodtruck Friday

On fridays at rackspace we get a bunch of foodtrucks that come and visit. It adds some really excellent variety to lunch and don’t have to go anywhere, which is really nice. I think the foodtruck folks like it too.
