A Grand OpenSSO Community Day Out in New York

Many thanks to all who attended (I counted at least 50) and spoke at our very first OpenSSO Community Day this past Tuesday in New York City, and to NYU for making available such an excellent facility.

We had a range of speakers: some from the OpenSSO product team, some from other parts of Sun, and even one SI partner - Mike Schwartz from ID-Vault. As promised, we assembled the agenda at the start of the day, and managed to fit in nine 40 minute sessions covering pretty much every aspect of OpenSSO. Almost all the slides are online at the event wiki page (slides, please, Brad!).

If you attended the community day, please complete the Meetup survey - we'd love to have your rating and comments.

The next stop for the OpenSSO Community Day roadshow will be Munich, on May 5. Remember, if you're also planning to attend the European Identity Conference (hosts for our event), you can get 20% off your registration fee by quoting the discount code OPENSSO.

Watch this space for news of OpenSSO Community Day 3.0 - to be held in San Francisco, around the time of CommunityOne West/JavaOne.

Attend an OpenSSO Community Day, Save €€€!

As Daniel just blogged, attendees at our second OpenSSO Community Day, to be held at the Deutsches Museum in Munich on May 5 2009, can get a 20% discount off their registration for the European Identity Conference 2009, which is kindly hosting us during their conference week. Just quote OPENSSO when you register and you'll get the discount. As Daniel says "We will be passing an attendance list to Kuppinger-Cole so you need to show-up to our community day to get this discount".

Meanwhile, looking at our first OpenSSO Community Day, in New York City, on March 17 (yes, St Patrick's Day; no, that wasn't intentional - honest!) we blew past our original estimate of one man and a dog and had to move it to a bigger room. We're now in the Shorin Performance Studio on the 8th floor of the Kimmel Center.

Currently leading in the unofficial "furthest travelled attendee" contest for New York looks to be Kimimasa, flying in from Japan. Can anyone beat that? Any OpenSSO community members in Perth, Australia?

OpenSSO Community Day - NYC - March 17 2009

Join us for the very first OpenSSO Community Day!

Hosted by New York University at the Kimmel Center in Greenwich Village, New York, and sponsored by Sun Microsystems, this is an opportunity for OpenSSO contributors, deployers and users to come together in an informal 'unconference' setting.

Being an unconference, the only rigid item on the agenda is to decide at 9am on the sessions for the rest of the day. You can show up and talk about any OpenSSO-related topic you like. Maybe you have an interesting deployment, a new extension or a nagging question - sessions can be discussions as much as presentations. Now, that doesn't mean that there need be zero preparation - if you have a session in mind, go to the wiki and add it there, so folks can get an idea of the likely content ahead of time. We've already posted a few ideas.

All are welcome, attendance is free, and continental breakfast plus lunch will be provided. We'll likely adjourn to a nearby bar at the end of the day to continue the conversation

We're using meetup.com to manage the registration process - just join the OpenSSO group and RSVP. And don't delay - 5 of the 40 places are already gone!
