OpenSolaris Tour 2009 - Day 2 - Sao Leopoldo/BRAZIL

Posted by maltron on July 3, 2009 at 4:04 PM PDT


Getting closer to FISL (Free Software International Forum), the OpenSolaris User Group from Porto Alegre, OSUG POA put together a small event at UNISINOS, one of the best known Universities in Sao Leopoldo (aprox. 30 min from Porto Alegre).

This is a private University and some of students work during the day and attend classes during the evening. The professors offer Operating System and having a presence of OpenSolaris UserGroup can contribuite with their experience and knowledge.

We had talks given by Brian Leonard about "Developing Beyond the Localhost" and showing different techniques to debug an application using OpenSolaris unique features. The other talk was given by Tirthankar Das, Sun's Senior Engineer from India and one the leading authorities in Cluster capabilities.

This little effort was thanks to the volunteer work of Ronaldo Prass, a guy who spreads his passion about OpenSolaris in his University. Good work Ronaldo and we would thank UNISINOS for gently offer their facility. We're looking forward to OpenSolaris Tour 2001.

The weather was getting cold and we're concern about timing for the shuttles. Nevertheless, nobody bother leaving and we had great questions.
