Everything looks solded out but still is here the main part
I think this conference was a great opportunity to meet everyone who likes opensolaris. People there could open your eyes to understand what opensolaris really is and what does it mean to be part of. At the first stage solaris was focused on limited groups of users. These users prefered stability and security. This fact may give to opensolaris the biggest advatages against others. Back to the conference program.
After nice Jim Grisanzio's presentation: Governing OpenSolaris: Get Involved! We spent few time in discussion how difficult is building good community. How diffucult is develope good strategy to cover all potential contributors to the opensource project. It's not easy to do this and it needs also psychological and philosophical ideas. I hope everybody will agree with . I had to leave the first day at two o'clok because had other duties but I looked forward for the next day. On the second day the first presentation was handled by man from Intel Corp. Dave Stewart . The presentation was incredible full of enthusiasm from becoming future and showed why others should use solaris/opensolaris. Also he did very nice snaphosts of Prague. Here is Dave's blog.
I had aslo chance speak to Lukas Rovensky about building community and to others from financial business. My final status is : It was lovely time to be at conference. Many thanks to all contributors and German Unix User Group too (GUUG)! (DTrace, ZFS, Translation process of opensolaris ...)
For those who haven't been there, here is short animation of Dave Stewart's presentation. I call it look to the future

On afternoon I saw numbers and names of registred visitors. I was really glad the numbers increased up But I have to noticed number of students or proffesors was smaller. I think on the conference we will have an unique opportunity to discuss how to use opensolaris for education purposes. I'm looking forward.
With opensolaris forever
For them who have planned to visit this conference or thinking about I have very important news. Here is detailed plan of the conference. As you can see here will be lot of interesting information.
The question is : "What are you waiting for ?"
For presetation this world coference to students I decided for little change of official posters. I think this event should connect knowledge and information and good relexed atmosphere together. It should be fun and interesting for all visitors who will be here. I hope that some of visitors will be profesors of various universities and also there will be lot of young people. Everybody with interest is welcome !
