OpenSolaris Developer Conference, Berlin 2007
By migi on Mar 02, 2007
At the Freie Universität Berlin from February 27 to March 2, 2007 there was first organized by German Unix User Group OpenSolaris Developer Conference.
I was able to be there for only first three days, and what I have to say is that the talks were very interesting and of course I enjoyed Berlin a lot!
I was helping John Rice with "How to use Java-Gnome to develop Java based GNOME applications in OpenSolaris" workshop. One nice thing, that is worth mentioning was prepared by us Nevada build 55 LiveUSB stick with NetBeans IDE and read/write user account. The instructions howto make it can be found on the page:
In some configurations and builds, few instructions might not work as described, but I will post update soon.
Here is small picture how the computer on the workshop looked, booting from the LiveUSB stick.
When we are talking about LiveUSB it is necessary to say, that on Friday Moinak Ghosh gave a talk about LiveMedia, unfortunately this time I was back in Dublin.
Vineeth Pillai made a workshop "Virtualisation concepts and implementation in Solaris", in which he played with zones as well with Qemu under Solaris. Here are two screen shots, showing GNU/Linux and MS Windows running under Solaris.

On Friday Damien Carbery gived a talk "pkgbuild - Building Solaris packages using RPM-like recipes", you can see him on the "U2 look&feel" picture, which was made two days before that.
The picture was taken in the area of Berlin's holocaust memorial, which was designed by Richard Serra and Peter Eisenman and build in the years 2001-2005. It is placed between Brandenburg Gate and Potsdam Platz.
All the best and once again thanks for the nice event!
