Venue Change Notice: The location of this meet up has moved to Q. Thanks to Carolyn at Q for hosting us on relatively short notice.
About the Presentation:
Garret D'Amore is the founder and technical lead of the Illumos Project, a fully open community project to develop a reliable and scalable operating system that began as a fork of the OpenSolaris operating system, returns to UUASC to give an update to his January 2011 presentation.
Since that time various distributions are now based on Illumos, including an OmniOS image available on Amazon Web Services. Joyent has ported KVM to their SmartOS distribution and Illumos provides the upstream source code base for the OpenZFS project which brings together developer from Linux, FreeBSD, and OSX.
To get some background the video of the Jan. 2011 presentation can be seen at http://vimeo.com/18799117 .
About the Location:
PARKING: Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for a $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.
SECURITY: there is a security desk in the lobby, in case they ask, let them know you're going to Q's office at suite 925.
