Sun University Days in BMS College of Engineering

AST team had conducted a 2 day event in BMS college. It was attended by more than 150 students and lecturers of BMS college.
1/2 day was reserved for opensolaris. Since most of the colleges in India are predominantly Windows users,
We knew that at most 20-25% of the crowd may have some unix knowledge.

So opensolaris talks were spread in 3 section.

1) I gave a first talk on Introduction to Solaris. The idea was to introduce them to Unix world and
get them familiar with Solaris look and feel, introduce some administration commands.

2) Raju SN gave a talk on some advance features of Solaris. 
Basically explain students why Solaris is called the Best Operating System on Planet.
In his presentation Raju covered some of the new features of Solaris like SMF, Zones, BrandZ, Dtrace, ZFS, Trusted Extensions, etc..

3) Finally presentation was given by Ganesh Hiregoudar on How to contribute for opensolaris.
By now they would have been impressed by Solaris and features, if they want to contribute, where to look for resources,
which forums, user group they can be part of, What all projects they can do on opensolaris.

All the sessions were quite interactive. There was lot of interest in contributing to opensolaris. Even if we convert 10% of the people who have shown interests join Bosug,
I am sure our Himalaya conference room may not be able to take that many people for Next Bosug meeting.
