From May 19. to May 21. 2015 SerNet GmbH and the international SAMBA team are hosting the SAMBA eXPerience in Goettingen at the Hotel Freizeit In. The conference in its 14th edition is again a meeting place for developers and users from around all the world. The "Call for Papers" as well as the sale of the "Early Bird" tickets starts now.
The "sambaXP" is the world's only conference that focuses exclusively on SAMBA. It is therefore an important opportunity for SAMBA users and developers to discuss all SAMBA topics and meet the Core SAMBA team.
With the upcoming release of SAMBA 4.2 (early 2015) sambaXP provides a platform to for a lot of topics: The current status of SMB3 implementation, cloud challenges and the latest developments in OpenStack esp. regarding authentication. Like every year Data Management as well as clustering and performance optimization remain the key buzzwords that keep the SAMBA universe busy and are topics for talks we would like to hear at the conference. Also interoperability with AFP file servers, and compatibility with Apple SMB clients are candidates for the agenda. A look at SAMBA 4.3 is promised by the SAMBA team.
Detailed information on the conferences topics is listed in the Call for Papers section on sambaXP.org. Abstracts can be submitted here as well. We are looking for both sides: technical presentations and user reports. The conference language is English; submissions in German are welcome nonetheless.
The "Call for Papers" runs until February 28th.
Until then, early bird tickets for the two-day conference including BarCamp are available at a reduced rate of 299 Euros. Traditionally, the sambaXP starts on Tuesday, May 19th with tutorials. The tutorial "SAMBA 4 and CTDB" is already available, another tutorial organized by Microsoft can be booked by mid January.
Chairman of the SambaXP 2015 is again John Terpstra. He is a founding member of the SAMBA team and an acclaimed technical writer. The sambaXP 2015 is sponsored by Google, IBM and Microsoft.
