OpenSolaris Introduction for Students from Vienna
By lr on Nov 20, 2007
Students of Technical University of Vienna visited Czech Republic and as part of their program they also visited Prague Engineering Center (PEC). We have prepared for them a series of presentations, starting with information about Sun and PEC and continuing with OpenSolaris, NetBeans, and Glassfish. I had the opportunity to present about Introduction to OpenSolaris. This event was very interesting for me because of the following reasons:
- It was the first time when I presented together with people from other engineering groups in Prague.
- We talked about important part of Sun's software portfolio and all products we discussed are open source.
- The students had interesting questions -- not too much technical but mostly economical -- how Sun can make money from software when almost all our products are open sourced and people can start to use them for free. So, instead of answering questions about ZFS, DTrace, etc., I talked about Sun's strategy in this space. It proved to be very good to have a CEO who blogs and read what he writes about .
