My First OCP Engineering Workshop – Awesome Doesn’t Begin to Describe it!

The Open Compute Project (OCP) Compliance and Interoperability (C&I) focused Engineering Workshop was held on 1 October 2013 at the Goldman Sachs building in Jersey City, NJ. This was the first engineering workshop I’ve attended since being hired as the OCP Community Manager. I learned that I still get nervous when I speak and that the hardware, its processes, personalities and organizations involved in, near, or around OCP are fascinating and to say I am excited about OCP in 2014 would be an understatement.

Just a little about OCP and its projects.  Currently, there are seven projects for individuals and organizations to get involved with and participate in. Those projects include: server, storage, motherboard, open rack, networking, data center design, compliance and interoperability. The specs and more information can be found here.

We are working hard on making the paths for communicating, collaborating, and contributing clearer and lowering the barrier to entry. If you want to get involved be sure to follow OCP on Twitter, like OCP on Facebook, and add OCP to your circles on Google+. Of course you can always contact me as well and I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction as well.
