Did you miss the big announcements at CommunityOne? No problem! Just listen to the short segment below by Chhandomay and I to get up to speed.
Technical and Deep-Dive Sessions: OpenSolaris will be featured on June 1, as part of the general Operating Systems/Platform Track, in addition to two separate OpenSolaris software-specific tracks – one for developers and one for system administrators. On June 2, developers and systems administrators can attend deep-dive sessions featuring OpenSolaris.
Install Lounge: Be sure to check out the OpenSolaris Install Lounge, which will be in Booth 322 on the Pavilion floor, and is open to all attendees of the CommunityOne and JavaOne conferences. The lounge will contain an OpenSolaris Install Fest area, a RockBand 2 area, and the “Apps of Steel” showcase area. You can also answer trivia questions to win prizes and an entry for the drawing for a Toshiba laptop!
Party!: Don't miss the OpenSolaris and Sun Cloud party from 7 to 9 p.m. on June 1 at the Moscone Center in Hall A. There will be food, drinks, games, and live music so don't miss this opportunity to connect with other members of the OpenSolaris community!
And, for those who cannot attend CommunityOne in person, the general session keynotes and the OpenSolaris techinical sessions will be available online at opensolaris.com/communityone.
Preparations for CommunityOne West are well under way here at Sun!
The third annual developer conference will be from June 1-3 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
There is no fee to access the main conference on June 1, along with access to the Pavilion and JavaOne general session June 2-4. Access to the CommunityOne Deep Dive sessions can be purchased for either one or two days, or you can purchase an All Access pass for complete access to both CommunityOne and JavaOne with reserved seating, express entry to sessions, and a computer bag.
CommunityOne West will feature more than 70 technical sessions, lightning talks, and hands-on labs led by experts on topics such as Cloud Platforms, RIAs and Scripting, Mobile Development, and Web Platforms. All the session details are available in the CommunityOne catalog.
Sun is providing a full conference pass for all students to participate in BOTH the complete CommunityOne and JavaOne experience. The full conference pass will grant students access to all general sessions, technology sessions, birds of feathers, and specially developed Java University classes, as well as give them the opportunity to network with leading-edge technologists from around the world.
