BOSUG meet on 9/12/2006
By vineeth on Dec 09, 2006
We had the Bangalore Open Solaris User group meeting on SUN office bangalore yesterday! As expected we had a good crowd to start with! It was a mixed crowd with students from proffesional colleges as well as IT proffessionals.
Yesterday's meeting was planned as an introductory session on Solaris and Open Solaris as there were many new faces on the meet! Moinak gave an introductory talk on Open solaris and its cool features. Followed by Moinak's speech, Pradhap gave a demo on how to install Solaris on to a x86 machine. A question answer session was also there where lots of interesting questions were raised.
The results of the written Quiz that we conducted in FOSS.in was anounced and Dr. Bish got the first prize( 1 GB Thumb drive ).
It was a fantastic session and I am sure that all those who where new to Solaris would have gained something from it. We plan to continue this session with more elaborate talks on the details like SMF, Zones, ZFS, dtrace etc. I hope the next BOSUG meet would be on early January 2006. See you BOSUGians next year
