FAQ: What Solaris/Unix conferences should I attend?
By user12611852 on Mar 06, 2008
I received this question from a customer today:
We are looking into Solaris or Unix conferences that are held yearly (such as the MS tech net conference) that you feel are worthwhile for learning or finding out cutting edge news.
Are there any you would recommend or is there a schedule with prices you could direct me to?
I have a number of suggestions but I'm certain that others out there have their own favorites. Here's my list.
- Sun Tech Days
- Locally run OpenSolaris user's groups
- OSCON: Open Source Convention (Sun is a platinum sponsor)
- Usenix sponsored conferences

Why should you care?
To quote Sy Sims, "An educated consumer is our best customer."
Go out and get educate. Some of the brightest and most enthusiastic Sun Engineers speak and attend many of these conferences.
