Overhauling the Cockpit Hosted Engine Wizard

Feedback form is now closed.
Starting with version 4.2, the oVirt hosted engine CLI wizard was given an Ansible-heavy rewrite. In parallel, the Cockpit-based graphical wizard was also completely rewritten to provide a much more robust user experience than that of the previous version. This talk will discuss this overhaul with an emphasis on improvements made in the UX and the open source toolset used.

It will cover:
- Brief introduction to oVirt and Cockpit
- Drawbacks of the old wizard and goals of the rewrite
- Challenges faced and lessons learned along the way
- Example functionality from the new wizard

Participants are expected to learn:
- Some basic user experience design principles
- The importance of using a consistent design language
- The benefits of using open source tools such as ReactJS and PatternFly
