sambaXP 2017 is the 16th event of the yearly Samba show and a nice anniversary if written in hex: 0x10 :-) The schedule is fully packed with talks from the international <link http: samba.team _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>samba team, from customers with user experience reports and vendors that integrate Samba into their products.
The complete schedule has been published on <link https: sambaxp.org _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>
This year's conference again is about the progress and future roadmap of Samba - but also the time to look back on the existing code: After a first analysis Samba is not vulnerable regarding the Shadow Broker attacks - but even besides this annoying facts there are bugs and other challenges in Samba to report about.
The organisers at SerNet love to report that Google, Microsoft and Red Hat again appear as partners and sponsors of sambaXP. With their support all Samba team members can attend the show for free and students and other younger folks can be given cost reducing grants.
This conference is dedicated to <link https: www.samba.org _blank external-link-new-window externen link in neuem>Lars Müller, who died in 2016 after long illness. He was a long term <link http: samba.team _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>Samba Team member, a good friend of many people at SerNet and a diligent <link https: sambaxp.org _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>sambaXP participant.
