Building Open Communities with Jim Grisanzio

BLUG is happy to announce that it will again organize another meeting together with the cool Beijing OpenSolaris User Group to celebrate Jim Grisanzio, Sun Microsystems Community Manager, visit in Beijing. This will be the opportunity to discuss about OpenSolaris in general, what has happened so far, what will happen in the future (who knows?) and clarify all the questions you may have.

Time: 6 pm
Date: Thursday September 25, 2008
Location: The third conference room, International conference center, Tsinghua Science Park, Floor 2, Wing A, Technology Plaza, Beijing

Abstract
========
OpenSolaris is a global engineering project. It's big and complex and can be confusing, but things are really changing now. We are growing rapidly and beginning to solve some of the biggest challenges we've had since we opened. It's still early, though, so the timing for getting involved is perfect. That's what we'll talk about -- community development and participation, infrastructure and governance changes, and lots of lessons learned along the way.


Jim Grisanzio's Bio
===================
Jim has been with Sun since 2000. He started in corporate communications, and moved to the Solaris engineering in 2004 to participate in the creation of the OpenSolaris project. He is in the OpenSolaris Infrastructure Engineering Team, which is a global group of about 12 people responsible for building and supporting opensolaris.org's web applications, multi-site server facilities, content, and open development tools and infrastructure.

He has helped to build community throughout Sun and on opensolaris.org and also at conferences, user groups, and universities internationally. He was elected to the OpenSolaris Governing Board for the 2008-2009 term.
