OpenSolaris Storage Summit
The date for the OpenSolaris Storage Summit has been set. We will be hosting the event at the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency hotel on the 21st of September, 2008. This is right before this year's Storage Developer Conference at which Sun is a Platinum sponsor.
We already have a couple of keynote speakers lined up: Ben Rockwood and Mike Shapiro. It will take place all day Sunday, so if you are coming to SDC this year, come a day early and participate. We will have the first ever OpenSolaris Storage Community meeting (face to face). A great way to meet some folks that you may only know by their email addresses. Everybody has an opportunity to give a Lightning talk and/or put a poster together about what they are working on or doing with OpenSolaris storage.
Registration is via a wiki page here: http://www.genunix.org/wiki/index.php/OpenSolaris_Developer_Summit_08. Just add your name and contact information into the Attendance List table and you are registered! Attendance is free and we hope many folks from the community will attend this year. Also, you should add yourself to the summit list, even if you are not sure you will be able to go, so you can keep up to date with the planned activities. We may create ways to participate even if you can't make it to Santa Clara this year (if we get people asking for access). Once registered, scroll down to the bottom of the wiki and suggest some topics or volunteer to participate as a poster or lightning talk. Fill in some details about yourself (or someone else) at the bottom of the page.
Check it out, get involved, and I hope to see you there! It will be a blast. More details later...
