Last week I had the great privilege to interview the infamous Intel Dave ... a title that he really finds funny by the way. Dave was in town to visit family and he happened to be able to stop by the Sun offices in Broomfield for the FROSUG meeting. He gave a great talk on Intel's participation in OpenSolaris and how they are contributing. Before the FROSUG meeting I had the opportunity to sit down with him and chat about OpenSolaris and what it is like to be outside of Sun contributing to to this project. It was informative and the idea of giving people credit for their contributions resonated with me. We'll be trying to do this in the storage community. Watch the interview and then I'll be interested in your ideas on how to make people's contributions known. Drop a comment and let me know your thoughts.
The OpenSolaris storage community in conjunction with the Sun's Open Storage Initiative are proud to host the first annual OpenSolaris Storage Summit, Sept 21, 2008. This summit will directly proceed the SNIA Storage Developer Conference, of which Sun is a sponsor and will be a great time for users and developers of OpenSolaris storage technologies to meet each others and hear about some cool happenings. So far we have signed up Mike Shapiro (of dTrace fame) and Ben Rockwood (Joyent dude and OpenSolaris evangelist) as keynote speakers. We are looking for other speakers and topic suggestions. So drop by the summit wiki, give us your suggestions and sign up to attend. The whole event is free of charge and we are planning a great party Sunday evening. Is you will be in the Bay Area on the 21st of September we would love to see you.
