Growing Up with Samba

Friday, April 23, 2010

Next month Samba eXPerience 2010, the ninth international Samba conference for users and developers, will be held in Göttingen, Germany from May 3rd - 7th. Jeremy Allison, who works in the Google Open Source Programs Office, will be at the conference to hack on Samba and present his talk, “How to make a product with Samba” at 1:30 - 2:15 pm, Thursday May 6th (volcano ash permitting). His talk will cover the advantages and problems of using Samba in a storage product, and how to work with the Samba developer community.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Growing Up,” and Jeremy notes that at SambaXP 2010, “Microsoft engineers will be attending and giving a keynote at the conference for the second year running, which shows how important Microsoft now considers interoperability with Free Software projects.”

To get more of Jeremy’s thoughts on open source, you can read his columns or talk to him in Germany!
