March was a busy month for Julien Canquelain and Sebastien Rodriguez, our Sun Campus Ambassadors for INSA Lyon.
First, they organized a conference about OpenSolaris on March 20th. They presented the OS, DTrace, Zones and ZFS. Conference went well despite some hardware problems just before the demo. OpenSolaris was new for most attendees (40 people) and OpenSolaris t-shirts were really appreciated !
On March 27th, Bertrand Delsart
from the Sun Java Real Time group in Grenoble Engineering Center
, gave a conference at INSA Lyon about Java RT
. About 20 students showed up, which is not bad as the subject is quite technical. The conference was very interesting and Bertrand found the good mix between high-level concepts and crusty (you said gory ?) details.
Apart from these 2 events, there is more to come as a teacher has just acquired some SunSpots and has started to set up some labs to use these devices. Stay tuned.
