Lyon Convention Centre - Room St Clair 2

The Redfish Workshop is a one day event, with live demos that puts you in direct contact with Redfish Project technical experts. Its primary aim is to show sysadmin, architects and developers how to use the Redfish standard in their environments to benefit from a standard management layer for their deployments, configuration and management of systems. More information at Redfish on

It is a co-located event of the Open Source Summit Europe 2019 that we encourage you to attend as well.

Our knowledgeable and engaging speakers will help you better understand topics like using DMTF tools for system configuration, using the REST API to perform Redfish operations from python, learning latest news on the standard and its future evolution. Through interactive sessions, demos and labs, you’ll have a chance to network and better understand and practice the concepts presented.

This is a free of charge event, sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and SUSE.

Who can benefit:

  • System & Software Developers
  • Tech Leads / Development Leads
  • Software Architects
  • Chief Engineers
  • System Engineers
  • Development Engineers
  • DevOps / System Administrators
  • Application Engineers
  • Open Source Technologists

The detailed agenda is available just below, with one of our key speaker being Jeff Autor, HPE Distinguished Technologist and Redfish Forum Co-Chair who will be able to answer all your nasty (or more simple :-) questions about the standard and cover for us the latest news. Other key speakers will be Julien Niedergang, SUSE Techologist who will detail various use cases of the Redfish standard in SUSE products and Gunnar Mills who will cover Redfish and OpenBMC.
