Becoming an OpenSolaris Power User

Dave and I attended CommunityOne East last month in New York City and gave a talk called Becoming an OpenSolaris Power User based on our book, OpenSolaris Bible. Thanks to Deirdré Straughan, the presentation is now available online for free!

Because the book is almost 1000 pages and the talk was only fifty minutes, we were only able to scratch the surface of most topics. As I said at the beginning of the presentation, the talk could more accurately be titled, "Introduction to Becoming an OpenSolaris Power User." I started the presentation with an overview of the power features of OpenSolaris, and then we discussed three areas in more detail. Dave talked about the ZFS file system and some of the network virtualization features and I finished up with an overview of DTrace.

Without further ado, here's the presentation. And if you want to follow along at home, here are the slides.

You can also download the talk in mp4 format for your iPod.

If this talk piqued your interest, look for us at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) in July, where we'll be doing a 3 1/2 hour version.
