OpenSSO / OpenDS Community Day in San Francisco

Yesterday, in a prelude to the CommunityOne West and JavaOne conferences, we had our 3rd community day for the OpenSSO, OpenDS and Identity Connectors projects.

Being on a Sunday, and in a less attractive venue than the previous Community days, the attendance was not as high a previous community days, but we still had interesting discussions and presentations with users and customers of our projects. And it's also a nice way to get to know the users of our technologies and learn more about what they're doing with it.
The day ended at the Thirsty Bear for more discussions and exchanges around beers and food.

I'm heading to San Francisco now !

Well, I'll be leaving home tomorrow morning, but early enough that people in California will still be up on the Friday night.
I'll be arriving in San Francisco on Saturday mid-day, getting prepared for a long and intense week.

On Sunday, from 1pm to 7pm, we have our OpenSSO / OpenDS community day at the Moscone.
And for the rest of the week, we'll be at CommunityOne West and JavaOne, mostly working on the Identity booth in the Pavilion.
See you there !

An index of indexes in OpenDS

I noticed that my colleague Kunal wrote a series of article on OpenDS indexes.
Here's an index of his posts:

Kunal is a committer in the OpenDS project, has recently developed the support for extensible matching rules and indexes in OpenDS, as well as all internationalized matching rules (also called collation rules) which allow to filter LDAP content according to a language specific rules.

Kunal is also an amateur photographer and we're planning on bringing our respective toys in San Francisco next week to shoot pictures of the city but also during the CommunityOne and the JavaOne conferences.

JavaOne is over, next is Jazoon

JavaOne is over and once again it has been so busy during the week that I did not have the time to turn on the laptop and post here.

On the OpenDS booth, we've been pretty busy, explaining the project, its goals and the two demos that we've built on top of the directory server: an OpenID Identity Provider and an Atom / APP server. Our 0.8 release got some interest as we've seen a serious increase in our downloads and page views.

The Atom / APP server will be released in open-source as a sub-project of OpenDS.

The OpenID identity provider specific code for OpenDS will be contributed back to project.

I've been able to attend a few sessions:

  • "JMX : who does what ?" brilliantly presented by Eamonn McManus and Jean-Francois Denise.
  • "High-Performance Java Technology in a Multicore World"
  • "Garbage-Collection-Friendly Programming"
  • "Beyond blogging: feeds in action" by Dave Johnson.
  • "Identity 2.0 in Java"

The fun part of JavaOne is always James Gosling general sessions on Toys and fun stuff, and Java Real Time got a good share of it with Dancing Robots, an industrial-strength Robot arm and even an helicopter.

Gosling, Java Fun and Toys

I'm going to take a few days off to recover from the May madness but not too long as I have to finalize the presentation that I will be giving on OpenDS at Jazoon 2007.

CommunityOne and now JavaOne

It was a busy day yesterday for the first CommunityOne. 


The OpenDS, OpenSSO, OpenID booth drew lot of attention yesterday, with demos of an OpenID identity provider, an Atom Publishing Protocol server both leveraging OpenDS for storage, retrieval and authentication of users and blog posts.

We will be running the same demos every day of JavaOne in the Community Corner.

We also had a little bit of presence on stage as I did a presentation introducing OpenDS and Cool Stuff during the last session of the Glassfish track.

Staring on our booth yesterday:


Today is the real start of JavaOne with its set of announcements...

Heading to CommunityOne

I just arrived yesterday in San Francisco for a week full of events, starting with CommunityOne and the Glassfish Day and then JavaOne for the rest of the week.

I'm heading to the Moscone center now, and let's the fun begin...

Join me at CommunityOne and JavaOne 2007.

I'm going to be at JavaOne this year, to present with a few other colleagues what we're doing with OpenDS and also on the Java LDAP API front. And I will be supporting my co-workers from the Grenoble Engineering Center who had the chance to get their presentation accepted: Eamonn and Jean-Francois, Luis-Miguel, Christophe and Frederic, Paul, Bertrand...

I will also be present at the CommunityOne as OpenDS is part of the Glassfish track.

See you there. And if you have not registered, it is not too late.

Join Me at the 2007 JavaOne Conference Event Connect Tool!
