New York

I'm in New York this week, visiting Solaris customers and preparing for tomorrow's launch of Solaris 11.

As readers of my occasional blog may know, I've been working on IPS, the new packaging system used in Solaris 11.  We've recently finished the first version of the developer's guide for IPS.  For those folks interested in how to use IPS to deliver their own software, or just want to better understand how Solaris uses IPS, we hope the developer's guide will be useful reading.

You can find the new guide here.

For those of you interested in attending either the live webcast, or happen to be in the area and want to join us at Gotham Hall in New York City, the registration link is here.

OTN Sys Admin Day

I'll be at the Hyatt in San Diego on Tuesday, May 17 to introduce the first OTN (Oracle Technology Network) Sys Admin day; we'll be focusing on Solaris 11 Express this time around.  This is a free technical seminar w/ hands-on labs, and is a great chance to try out some of the new technology in Solaris 11.   You can also offer feedback to both technical folks and Marketing (er, Product Management).  I'll talk about some of the changes in S11 Express of particular interest to system administrators, and discuss the new packaging system and installers.

More info, including location and registration link can be found here.

Here's the agenda:
