FOSDEM is probably the biggest open-source developers' conference in Europe.
This year will be the 3rd year for us to be present in FOSDEM. There will be a bunch of community people, handing out flyers and stickers, showing Jenkins, and generally be available to talk to people! This year, we'll bring some Jenkins T-shirts to sell, and hopefully some bobble heads as well. So please be sure to drop by.
And if you are already involved in the Jenkins project and willing to help us man the booth, that'd be awesome! Looking forward to seeing you!
I'm going to visit Sao Paulo once again this weekend to attend the second annual Jenkins users meet-up. It's a whole day free event Saturday full of Jenkins goodness.
You'll hear from a number of active Jenkins folks, and I'll be presenting about what CloudBees (where I currently work) has contributed to the Jenkins project, including recent new OSS plugins and some services. I'm also stuffing my suitcase with lots of give-aways, including Jenkins stickers and popular Jenkins bobble heads. I don't intend to bring anything back to the U.S.
The morning half of the event is a cross-atlantic hackathon between Brazil and Copenhagen. you can check what's being planned on the western side of the ocean and the eastern side of the ocean. The afternoon half is a series of presentations. Please come join us. I'm really looking forward to seeing you!
I'll be in Sao Paulo for the whole Sunday and Monday as well.
It's been a month now, but I realized that I've never posted a wrap-up post of JUC 2013. So in the spirit of "better later than, never", here it goes.
First of all, I wanted to thank everyone who came. More than 400 of you came, and another 600 signed up for live streaming of events (and I know some people watched those live streams past midnight in their local time zone!). I did my part in signing bobble heads and answering questions, and I was able to finally put faces to some of the people who I actively interact in the community but never met before.
I tried to take as many pictures as I can, and Lisa and Alyssa had posted their pictures as well. If you have your pictures, please share it with us! My favorite is Jenkins cupcake:

If you missed JUC Palo Alto on Oct 23, 2013 the videos are now available.
We are off to planning JUC 2014. It is hard to believe this will be the 4th annual JUC in the Bay Area. The growth in the Jenkins community since the first JUC is astounding.
Every year we are in search of a larger venue to accommodate the larger crowd. For 2014, the challenge of finding a venue for a capacity of 500+ attendees at a low cost will prove even more daunting. We would love to hear your suggestions for low cost venues (in the Bay Area) so that we may continue to keep entry cost low while providing convenience and the highest level of Jenkins education to attendees. Please send suggestion(s) to email@example.com
We are proud to launch the call for volunteers to join the JUC organizing committee (OC). If you are interested in shaping the 4th edition of this great event, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage you to share this blog within your network in case other people
would be interested in joining the JUC OC or have ideas for a great JUC 2014 location.
