GlassFish and OpenSSO Party Reminder @ The Thirsty Bear

ALT DESCR

A reminder that tomorrow, Sunday May 31st, is our GlassFish and OpenSSO Unconference and also the Party at The Thirsty Bear.

The Thirsty Bear is a popular hangout during JavaOne; they have great food and drinks and it is very close to The Moscone (see Google, Live). An RSVP is appreciated to assess food needs.

PS. I have not been able to post news recently because of J1/C1 preparations - plus this year's extra distraction - but this year my commitments are early in the week and I will try to catch up afterwards.

WebSpace Server 10.1 - It's happening again!

WebSpace Mascot

On the heels of the successful 10.0 release, the WebSpace server team brings you another series of community and milestone builds for the next release, 10.1. The first in this series, WebSpace server 10.1 Community Build 1, is now available. Just like the 10.0 development effort, this series gives you a chance to exercise new features and updates that will be in the 10.1 release, leading up to the final release. You can expect a number of Community and Milestone builds to follow.

for questions and tips, make sure to visit us at one of many of the community venues, including the forum or #webspace IRC Channel, or contribute on the growing Wiki (more on this later!).

Also, don't miss us at the UnConference, and at CommunityOne and JavaOne.

Registration for C1 Unconferences Now Open - GlassFish and OpenSSO Day

ALT DESCR

The registration for our CommunityOne Unconferences is now open. We are hosting two intertwined events, one for all the GlassFish projects, the other for OpenSSO, OpenDS et al. Both in Hall A at the Moscone (Wikipedia, GeoHack) the Sunday before JavaOne, May 31st.

Both events are free, and you can switch back and forth as your interests apply. Check the GlassFish Unconference page and the OpenSSO Day MeetUp and Topics page.

The unconferences will be followed with a Party at the Thirsty Bear. We have plenty of space at the Moscone but the TB space is limited, so I encourage you to sign up early.

JavaOne / CommunityOne UnConference ... and Party

ALT DESCR

This year's CommunityOne (West) starts a day before JavaOne, which gives us another opportunity to host an Unconference (see 2008 page) down in one of the big rooms at the Moscone Center. The event would be in the afternoon of Sunday, May 31st, so, if you are planning to attend C1 and/or J1 consider arranging your availability and/or travel plans to get there a bit earlier.

This year we will cover the full range of projects under the GlassFish Portfolio umbrella (Server, WebSpace Server, ESB, Web Stack, Hudson, Communications Server, Mobility Platform) as well as the Identity projects (OpenSSO, OpenDS, IdMgr, RoleMgr)...

Like last year, we will also follow-up with a party at The Thirsty Bear (@GoogleMaps).

What is an Unconference? Find Out on May 4th

Duke on Comfy Chair

If you have never attended an Unconference, this is your opportunity! We are hosting one for the GlassFish community the Sunday before JavaOne, at the Moscone (map).

The topics and speakers in an unconference are decided by the attendees themselves (see the Open Space principles). The only thing you need to do now is to go to the Wiki page and record your intent to attend and your topics of interest; we already have 26 people.

Alexis is Organizing the Event; there is discussion at the Advocacy list. Full details of the pre-J1 events at the the Unconference, Party and CommunityOne page.
