Free London Party: OpenSolaris User Group
By Matt Hosanee on Dec 02, 2008
Don't you just love December!? It's the festive period and we love to party
On Wednesday 17th we are providing another free evening of festive fare food & drink, some great company, oh and an opportunity to hear about some great new releases and innovations.
In the afternoon, we'll be running a drop-in session from about 3pm onwards where people can come along and talk to engineers and experts they wouldn't usually have access to plus we'll also have some really cool demos including, 'Dark Knight' Cluster demo, a 3D Java demo, SunSPOTs demo among others, & an InstallFest area which will cover VirtualBox, OpenSolaris 2008.11, NetBeans etc. Plus, if we get enough volunteers from the community, lightning talks going (where for 5-10 minutes, people share the cool stuff they're been working on or their experiences with OpenSolaris).
The evening session (6pm-9pm) will be 4 x 15 minute presentations run back-to-back, with 30 minutes for Q&A to the presenters immediately afterwards in the main presentation room:
\* ZFS Crypto
\* Amber Road Teaser
Experts from the above technologies and others (networking, cluster, security, storage etc.) will be on hand throughout.
If you are interested in attending the afternoon drop-in session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject '17/12 LOSUG Drop-in Interest'. If you have any specific areas or questions you would like addressed, please let us know so we can make sure the relevant experts are available.
