There are two parts of this talk: First one is focusing mostly on the IPS GUI and it's new/planned features such as web install, publisher auto discovery, history support and lots of other features. The users and developers will get an overview about the development aspects of the IPS GUI project from behind the scenes. This includes usability studies and automated tests, which includes DTrace for python. In the second part speaker will explain the benefits of working with multiply boot environments using OpenSolaris Package Manager and beadm(1) CLI.Michal Pryc presents at OSDEVCON 2009. Michael, a Sun engineer, has enjoyed working on the OpenSolaris desktop since mid-2006, in particular, the key project: Package Manager. Previously, Michal developed Java platform-based games and performed administrative tasks for several years. Away from the computer, depending on the place and time of the year, he plays sports: gliding, sailing, skiing, and badminton. For Michal it's the third time, when he will attend OpenSolaris Developer Conference, previously in Berlin and Prague.
