FOSDEM and Illumos Talk by Dan McDonald
Dear SFE Users!
I'm looking forward to the FOSDEM conference on January 30/31. I'm attending and we can meet there (Ask at the illumos table in building K). Or come to Dan's talk:
Sunday at 1200 - see you there!
Dan McDonald will talk about the 5 year history of the Illumos project: Illumos at 5. It is the core for the free Solarish OS distributions. Dan has been interviewed before the conference, you can read the interview here. I'm happy that Dan as well talks about third-party package projects like pkgsrc, OpenCSW and my personal favorite: "spec-files-extra" and the independent IPS packaging project here on sfe.opencsw.org (targets Oracle Solaris 11 (TM), OpenIndiana (Hipster) and now OmniOS).
I would like to hear your ideas how the third-party projects can accelerate and help the Solarish OS go through the roof. Let's have a coffee at FOSDEM and talk!
If you like, you can as well drop me your ideas as a note here on the blog or you can email me at sfepackages at gmail.org.
