Jorge Salamero, Zentyal systems analyst and developer, will give a talk at the Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) that will be held in Brussels (Belgium) on the 5th and 6th of February 2011. FOSDEM is one of the largest open source software developers’ events organized in Europe and it aims at offering a meeting place for developers as well as to promote the awareness and use of free and open source software.
During his talk, Salamero will explain the challenges the Zentyal Development Team has faced in developing a Linux small business server that integrates and makes over 30 independent open source components to act as one single unit. Special attention is given on how the project deals with packaging policies and security profiles, such as configuration file updates. Furthermore, Zentyal’s specific MVC-based development framework, integration with Ubuntu and integration plans with Debian will also be presented.
“We’re glad to be able to share our experience at FOSDEM and talk with other open source developers that might be interested in the project” said Jorge Salamero, and continued “Zentyal is a fast-moving project, with large and active userbase and its development framework makes it easy to configure new services and to improve already existing modules – I believe it is an interesting project to participate in. Moreover, besides the updated Zentyal packages that will be included in Ubuntu Natty, packages for Debian Squeeze will be available shortly, making the participation possible for even more developers.”
Additional note: Zentyal Team will be in Brussels from the 2nd until the 7th of February. If you are interested in arranging a meeting, please contact us via info at zentyal.com
