Next OTN Sysadmin Day

The next OTN Sysadmin Day is April 10 in Santa Clara, California. If you can make it, bring your laptop and walk through our hands-on labs for Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux. We'll help you perform routine sysadmin tasks with the ZFS, virtualization and security features of Solaris 11, and the package management, service and run levels, and volume management of Oracle Linux, plus the Btrfs filesystem. We'll include an overview of Ksplice, Ops Center, and the Oracle Solaris Studio IDE. Santa Clara, California, USA.

More information on the OTN Garage Blog.

Favorite Bloggers of OTN Latin America

By now you've probably heard of OTN Latinoamerica, the Spanish- and Portuguese-language version of the Oracle Technology Network. It provides resources similar to those on the English-language version, but in the local languages. And it focuses on the needs of Latin America's OTN members.

They just had an update worthy of noting: their list of favorite bloggers. It categorizes Spanish- and Portuguese-language bloggers by application and region. If you live or work in Latin America, or just want to read something in your native language. Check it out.

And, if you're interested in Oracle Solaris, be sure to check out Apuntes de Solaris, Diego Aguirre's blog. Diego brought this list of bloggers to my attention.
