notes from community one

Community One:

Got up early in San Francisco, stopped one of the many Starbucks on the way to Mosconne Center and registered for CommunityOne and JavaOne. Here's my notes from a full day of sessions that I attended.

General Session:

  • Open source is at the core of Sun's business
  • Sun is about open standards, formats, and systems
  • Innovation happens everywhere, not in one place
  • The number of communities has tripled since last year
  • Things are increasingly interconnected.
  • What is community ... it's about people, people are passionate about things they do.
  • Move from monolithic to modular (hardware / software) ... solutions assembled from commodity components.
  • Customers demand choice, reduce lock-in to a vendor ... increases competition.
  • Market place still wants solutions (not pieces) based on these compenents.
  • Simplify the community and technology adoption.
  • panel discussion
  • opensolars release ... source code open a couple of years ago. How to involve the community. All activity is done in the open. How do people now consume the innovation. First fully supported release of opensolaris, a distribution ... new logo.
  • Various Solaris demos: install, zfs, D-Light
