HPE Developer Community Portal
Please meet my friend Patrick Duverger. After 3 years in France Telecom and 7 with Compaq/HP, Patrick made the decision, 12 years ago, to leave HP for a new position as CIO and partial CTO for the city of Antibes, a charming 80,000 inhabitant city on the sunny French Riviera. I met Patrick at HP when, together, we settled the Adaptive Enterprise (AE) Lab in the HP facility of Sophia Antipolis. He was the "software" guy and I was the "hardware" guy. Together we built many crazy and fun demonstrations which were used during keynotes at an HP Software event called HP Software Universe. The highlight of the AE Lab happened when Carly Fiorina, our CEO at that time, used a "magic" pen to sign a paper form which automatically kicked-in the provisionning of a new server within our demo web farm (using ProLiant BL10e at that time!). What a blast! After his departure Patrick continued his very active life as an open source developer. He has a few active projects but the one we will be focusing on here is called freeDatamap.
We decided to use his freeDatamap/HPE OneSphere integration during HPE Discover in Madrid in the Hackshack, as a perfect illustration of what code contribution means. Patrick won an honor award for this very creative work. We hope to continue this very fruitful collaboration around HPE's products APIs. Patrick received a Kano Kit delivered by the HPEDev team representatives in their Sophia Antipolis, France facility. We are pretty sure he will take good care of it. Congratulations Patrick!
