A successful technical software event...
By Ludo on Jan 25, 2008
The Technical software event organized last week in Grenoble Engineering Center has been a great success. Kudos to Dominique, a great G.O.
The attendance exceeded our expectations (and almost our room capacity). There was more than 190 persons over the 4 days, an average of 100 attendees per day (and nearly 120 on the first dat), coming from 20 different countries.
Below some of our guest speakers : Dan Berg, Alban Richard -Director of the Directory Services Engineering and Grenoble Site Leader-, Roman Strobl -aka Mr. NetBeans-, Gilles Gravier -OpenSolaris and open source enthousiast-, Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine -GlassFish evangelist and emeritus skier-.
On Friday, I presented an introduction to the OpenDS project (PDF) in the general session and in the afternoon a 2 hours session demoing the basic features and principles of OpenDS. There is some feedback to the developer team with regards to dsconfig and usability, an area where we haven't really focused so far.
