Executive Summary from the Juju Charmer Summit 2015


Last week members of the Juju community gathered in Washington DC for the first ever Juju Charmer Summit. The goal of the summit was to help our users better understand what’s happening in the Juju community and be able to grow their skills, and for us it was a tremendous opportunity to collect real-world feedback on how people use Juju.

One of the first things we announced as part of the summit is the beginning of our charm developer program, which offers free cloud instances to anyone who is writing charms for the community. We’ve already got a great number of people signing up, and we’re looking forward to seeing what people come up with.

The summit was high energy, with over 50 attendees and dozens of topics discussed. The schedule of events has a list of what was discussed. We’d also like to the thank the following organizations for attending and supporting the summit: Capital One, IBM, RSA, Big Switch Networks, Dark Horse Comics, Verizon, CodeFutures Inc, Alliance Technology Group, University of Ghent, University of Peru, Weave, RM Solutions, Juniper Networks, Cloud Services, PBS Digital, Quasardb, VroomConsults, Canonical Ltd, and Silicon Valley Data Science.

List of Referenced Documentation

We thought it would be a good idea to specifically link to features in Juju that had sessions, as a way to directly point to people on what’s hot and what people are looking forward to the most. If you are using Juju in production we recommend the following new features and tidbits:

Slides from the Presentations

Please note that the slides probably won’t make too much sense without the video, however we are currently editing the recorded sessions and will publish them to the public as soon as they are available. Preparations are already underway for a second summit, thanks, and see everyone in the New Year!
