First OpenSolaris user conference April 26

A Sun Microsystems programmer has begun organizing the first conference devoted to building a community of open-source programmers involved in developing its OpenSolaris operating system.

The conference will be April 26 at Sun's Santa Clara campus, said OpenSolaris programmer Alan DuBoff on his blog.

"I have taken on the task of forming the first user group in Silicon Valley and will leverage the help of the community, as well as the resources from Solaris engineering, to provide speakers and swag for those who attend," DuBoff said.
