That was my first presentation about OpenSolaris so I focused to showing that OpenSolaris 2008.5 is a GNU/OpenSolaris distribution but you can access features like ZFS, DTrace and Zones. I used those slides that Tirthankar Das, Solaris Cluster Engineering at Sun Microsystems, did for FISL 2008. Most of the audience was composed from students and they showed very impressed with ZFS. In my next OpenSolaris presentation I’ll try to focus more on ZFS demos. ;) Someone in the audience did a random number generator code live. We used it to prize some OpenSolaris gifts like tshirts and sticks. :D
I hope that for now on that we can use better this space and for establish a good dialog between communities, governments and enterprises.
All photos ares avaliable at my personal album for that event.
This monday I and others ambassadors from all over Brazil went to São Paulo to have a quick meeting with Crawfor Beveridge, executive vice president and chairman, EMEA, APAC and the americas at Sun Microsystems.
As we cant see all ambassadors at FISL was a good oportunite to meet all brazilians ambassadors, olds and new ones. Lucas Torri bring to us some cool OpenSolaris shirts and gifts from JavaOne 2008 (where he was showing Project Marge).
I could also see some places in I don’t knew in the building, like the room for demostrating products. I saw very interesting backup devices from Storage Tek (now also part of Sun).
Maluf introduces us to Crawford

Those days Gregg Sporar, NetBeans enthusiast working at Sun Microsystems was here in Brazil and went to our city Fortaleza to speak in our NetBeans Day Fortaleza. We had only a couple of days to prepare everything but is always good work under such pressure. :-)
Me and my friend (Cassiano Carvalho) could toke care of him. First we got Gregg at our international airport, Pinto Martins from a flight from Recife. After that we went to a typical food dinner at Coco Bambu where’s Gregg could taste our tapioca and figure why our local JUG (CEJUG) event is called Tapioca with Coffee.
After that we went to the hotel but we did not have realized that that day was the birthday of our city Fortaleza and the birthday party was a public concert at beach of one of most famous artist in Brazil, Roberto Carlos.
Roberto Carlos in the early years… :P
For those who are not Brazilians, To have an idea what Roberto Carlos is, just imagine (in a smaller proportion of course) some kind of Brazilian Elvis Presley. When we quited the restaurant the show was just finished, we had a huge crowd walking back for everywhere, streets blocked, mess and traffic extremely slow. We spend about two hour on this. We decided to park the car, get Gregg’s luggage and go walking the hotel. Luckily the rain don’t caught us.
In the morning was raining cats and dogs at Fortaleza, what is very uncommon.
I picked Gregg at the hotel to the campus so we can meet the NPD (acronym in Portuguese for Data Processing Core) building, the Internet backbone of the entire state and where some projects are using NetBeans. Gregg also met our CS department, our labs and our cluster.
While that we prepared the auditorium and some last details, test microphones and projector.
People started to get and we got their names and mails for event certifications. I opened the event talking about NetBeans, CEJUG projects and opportunities for the students.
People from TV Software Livre (Free Software Television) was there too to record and transmit the event.
The first Gregg’s talk was about NetBeans and some new features from the last version of NetBeans and some new features for the version 6.1.
The second was about Memory Leaks in Java and a method for detecting those. Very interesting.
After Gregg quited to fly to Brasilia I did a presentation on NetBeans 6 and 6.1 Beta news features. You can download Gregg’s slides here and here, my slides here.The recorded video is hosted at Google Video. You can see more photos in this album:
Gregg, thank you very much and hope you liked your quick visit to Fortaleza. ;) Thanks also CEJUG and all guys that made this event possible.
It’s one important step in the recognition of the Python language and certainly will bring benefits for the Python Community. Some things I’d like to see:
It’s really a great moment for Sun and Open and Free Software. I’m happy with all that? You can bet on it. :D
