OpenSPARC Expert Exchange

As a follow-up to the Sun Net Talk on OpenSPARC, an Expert Exchange, a live Q&A chat with Sun engineers on OpenSPARC was held on Wednesday, January 31 at 10am. The transcript is now available under the Expert Exchange archive.

The Expert Exchange was excellent. Lots of questions and answers, 29 in total. The chat application was very good, started without a fuss. One textarea to submit questions and another with the ongoing Q&A. My only negative comment would be that the chat monitor should have had a welcome message or a status that the exchange had started, since it was not obvious that it had. The first Q&A didn't appear until 12-15 minutes after 10am. Overall well worth the time spent. Below are the results from a short poll offerred during the session.

Highlights:
  • 57 Live attendees (14 Sun employees)
  • 29 Online questions answered
  • 23 % of the audience completed the poll
  • 69% of the audience responding to the poll are interested in adopting course work for OpenSPARC and Cool Tools
