As you know, we love to build great things together! We have already discussed it before at FOSDEM and now I'm excited to announce that the NethServer community will meet at its first own conference in Italy.
Our idea is to make this a learning and organizational event, so the aim is to arrange technical talks and discussions around how to make NethServer better and develop our community in the best way.
Remember, NethServer belongs to all of us. With NethServer we make sysadmins’ lives easier leveraging the power of Linux without the complexity.
First day 29th September (optional) we are invited as usual to attend the Nethesis Partner Meeting at Palacongressi in Riccione, Italy. We'll have a stand where we can spread the NethServer word and I'll bring swag and stuff to make the booth look nice. We can gather and meet familiar faces, drinking good wine and eating italian food (Official language for the event is Italian but with some interpreters we can make it anyway!). The day will end with a dinner to which everyone is invited to participate.
Second day 30th September, we will move to another venue where we can actually kick off the community event.
NethServer Conference is going to take place at Villa Matarazzo. Located in Fanano (10 km from Riccione), on Marche hills, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, in front of the Castle of Gradara (PU),
We want this to be an event where everyone who works on and with NethServer is invited, that includes members, partners, and supporters.
The event will be free and we are pretty sure to find sponsorships for food and venue at least.
To make this a real community event, I'd like to ask everybody to help and discuss the conference organization!
Which topics do you want to discuss at the event?
Do you have any suggestion for the organization? Do you have questions? Let’s talk.
We will organize and plan the event here on community and you can get involved right now!
I’m preparing an open registration form and a call for papers to submit.
For now, save the date! 29-30 September 2017
That is going be a HUGE opportunity to meet the NethServer Community as a whole!
NethServer in an Educational environment - @robb
I would like to point out what it would take to make NS the perfect solution in Educational environments.
Nethserver implementation in a health company- C hanging from Zentyal to Nethserver - @iglqut
Moving from a corrupted NT4 Samba 4 (Zentyal 3.4) Domain to AD is a challenge, especially when you have to do it in a life system. We have done it at our medical institute, with the impressive help of the nethserver community within 6 weeks. Our speech will show (tactically and technically) how we solved the problems. We will also discuss the limitations and our wishes for future developments.
FreePBX and Asterisk on NethServer - @Stll0
This talk is about main differences between NethServer and FreePBX distribution and why we wanted to install FreePBX on NethServer instead of using the existing distro. We are also pointing out differences between enterprise and community version of NethServer PBX, development pitfalls and future developments
Moving to the next NethServer UI - @davidep
What is lacking in Nethgui? Is Cockpit good for NethServer? We will discuss some ideas and perspectives on the user interface of NethServer.
State of the NethServer Community - @alefattorini
Stories from our community, faces, challenges tackled, years of blood and sweat. What we have achieved so far, what we're working on and what's next.
The LibreSchool project: integrating NS in a scholastic FOSS environment - @syntaxerrormmm @fuso
We will provide a quick overview of the main goals of the LibreSchool project, then highlight how NethServer was chosen between other FOSS operative systems to be the core of our implementation. We will also quickly summarize what pre-existent technologies we employed, both during development and in production, and the new ones we integrated inside NethServer with little efforts, to simplify the management of these FOSS labs in some Northern Italian schools.
SambaStatus a "Do it yourself" module for NethServer - @gecco
Develop from scratch a module for to see logged user and open file in NethServer used like Domain Controller. There is not a similar function into NethServer then I wrote it!
