I gave a presentation called, “Developing On OpenSolaris” at the CommunityOne conference in San Francisco on June 1st. This talk was an overview of the benefits and features of OpenSolaris as a development platform. Topics included software management with the Image Packaging System (IPS), ZFS, Time Slider, DTrace, D-Light, SunStudio, GCC, Eclipse, and NetBeans. The goal of the presentation, in one sentence, was to answer the question, “why should I choose OpenSolaris as my development platform?”
In case you missed the talk, I’m happy to be able to offer the video here free of charge. This video doesn’t show the slides, so if you want to follow along at home, you can download the slides here.
Without further ado, here’s the video:
