Come on ! Join the Bacula developer conference

August 30th, 2010 by

I love to see all of you, devs, packagers or just curious on the Bacula developer conference held in Yverdon-Les-Bains Switzerland on September 26, 27 & 28.

Direct information : bacula.org conf page

You don’t know what bacula is ? Well I would summarize it as an one of the essential component in enterprise IT. It not only backup your data, it give you them back when needed ! Don’t smile, many backup solution failed (even proprietary solutions) in this last crucial point.

Here’s  the program extracted from our mailing-list.

Are you interested to:

  • Meet the Bacula developers in person
  • Learn how we maintain the source code
  • Hear some presentations about Bacula from the developers
  • Want to learn about and help define the Bacula roadmap.
  • Want to give feedback or ideas directly to the developers.
  • Learn more about Bacula Systems
  • Any of a load of other reasons

If so, we wondering if there is enough interest to have a Bacula developer’s
conference in Yverdon, Switzerland (about 1.5 hour by train from Geneva
Airport) on the 27th and 28th of September.
