Atlanta OpenSolaris User Group Launches

Scott Dickson
Enterprise Systems Architect
We are kicking off an OpenSolaris User Group in the Atlanta area. Several customers have asked me about whether such a thing existed. Since it didn't, we're starting one! The first meeting will be on Tuesday, November 8, 7:00-9:00 PM, at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia hotel in Atlanta.

Subsequent meetings will be on the campus of Georgia Tech, in the Student Center (the room was already booked for the first meeting). We will meet on the second Tuesday of January, March, May, July, September, and November (every other month).

Both the web site and email discussion list are live already.

For the kickoff meeting, I will talk about OpenSolaris, what it is, and how to get involved. But we hope to have community members present at many of our subsequent meetings. Ryan Matteson from Earthlink has already volunteered to speak about an article he wrote on the DTrace Toolkit.

We hope that anyone in the Atlanta area interested in OpenSolaris, as well as the commercially distributed Solaris, will come by help us get a great start!
