OpenSolaris presentation at INSA LYON. OSUM site created.

An OpenSolaris presentation took place on thursday 20th at INSA LYON as part of the Sun Campus Ambassadors program. About 20 students attended. Julien and Agnieszka presented VirtualBox and OpenSolaris. A more detailed session on OpenSolaris, with Dtrace, ZFS etc is planned.

Agnieszka also set up an OSUM (Open Source University Meetup) for INSA Lyon.
OSUM (pronounced "awesome") is a global community of students that are passionate about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and how it is Changing (Y)Our World. We call it a "Meetup" to encourage collaboration between student groups to create an even stronger open source community.

To connect to INSA OSUM, go to http://studentdevelopers.ning.com, select France country, then "Institut National des Sciences Appliquees, LYON". Enjoy

OpenSolaris and Java Real Time at INSA LYON

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.
