Off to DebConf 8 and Argentina
By barton808 on Aug 08, 2008
I'm off in few hours to attend DebConf 8 in lovely Mar del Plata, Argentina. The only bummer is that its winter down there so this seaside resort is going to be a bit chlly and as a result Im not able to pack as light as I usually do. That being said, getting away from the string of 100 degree days that we've been having here in Austin isn't such a bad thing.
I had a great time at DebConf 7 in Edinburgh, particularly since it was a homecoming of sorts for me. This time its exciting since I've never been to Argentina before and have heard great things. Like last year, Sun is a Silver Sponsor of the event.
On the software side, OpenJDK is in Sid and we've recently been granted a Freeze exception so keep your fingers crossed for Lenny. While Im there I want to sync up with the various maintainers and find out what the status is around other stuff like Net Beans, GlassFish, MySQL, VirtualBox, Sun Grid Engine, jRuby and Jython. On the Hardware side I want to talk to folks about the status of various SPARC ports.
I've also got my trusty podcast recorder so I hope to post a few of those when I get back as well.
Pau for now...
