Winter term is here! For some that may bring excitement, and for others I’m sure it will bring some dread. But in any case it’s time for the club to get active again! Last term we worked really hard on getting a virtualized infrastructure set up for easy use by our club members. Unfortunately we spent so much time setting it up that we didn’t have any good use cases or scenarios for it!

So the goal for this term is to try and incorporate our resources into everything we do. There is a whole lot that can be done with OpenStack and that means there’s a lot you can learn by using our resources instead of having to procure your own. This term we’re going to focus on networking again with a better look at routing and larger networks. We have an awesome event in the works for the end of the term and we want to get you all thinking about that and how you can participate in it. I don’t want to give out too much information just yet, but I will tell you that it’s going to be a “WAN” party 😉

I also want to push for more inclusion this term. Last term we were often finding low attendance to events and meetings so this term I want to try and schedule events and meetings to better fit everyone’s schedules. If you have any ideas on how to get more people to participate please let me know!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all again and we hope you all had a fantastic break! Keep your eyes open on the forum for the time and place of the first meeting this term and we hope to see you there!
