Solaris and Python

Loved being at last month's PyCon2013 in Santa Clara, CA. For many on our team this hadn't been the first Python conference, but it was the first time we were actually showcasing how Python lends itself to being a language of choice for systems programming and development of Oracle Solaris. We had about a dozen folks from the Solaris deployment technologies teams attend sessions, talk with exhibitors and attendees, and discuss how Solaris provisioning and software lifecycle management tools are written in Python.

Rick Ramsey, our OTN mechanic, caught up with Drew Fisher of the Solaris Deployment team to discuss benefits of choosing Python for developing OS installation tools. 

We are also looking for Python coders to grow our Deployment team in Solaris. Hear from Martin Widjaja, a manager of the Solaris Install team below:

And here are some of the photos from the event, courtesy of Martin himself.  Unfortunately not all team members who were at the event actually made it to the "photo shoot"; here are a few of the folks in action besides me, BJ Wahl, Swati Sarraf, Danek Duvall, Karen Tung, Jesse Butler, Ginnie Wray.

Ready.Set.Move: Solaris 10 to Solaris 11

As you begin to consider moving from Solaris 10 to Solaris 11, remember to check out the End of Feature Notices we posted here, in order to help you plan properly. Example: If you have SunOS 4 binaries you're running on Solaris 11, you'd need to run them in Solaris 10 Zones (that in turn run on top of Solaris 11).
