FOSS.IN Live Blogging Day 1: Glynn Foster on OpenSolaris

The focus of Glynn Foster's talk was how to contribute to OpenSolaris. Those who attended had some idea of OpenSolaris but did not know where to start. This talk was useful for them. A couple of folks in the audience were new to OpenSolaris.

 

Glynn talked about:

  • Practical aspects of contributing to OpenSolaris
  • Problems a developer would enter as he or she starts contributing
  • How to work around these problems?
  • Where to seek help?
