OpenNMS is community supported network management software that is both enterprise-grade and open source. Today we’re happy to tell you that the OpenNMS project is again a sponsor of BarCamp RDU. Here’s what Tarus Balog, “the mouth of OpenNMS” likes about BarCamps:
A couple of years ago I went to my first barcamp, barcampRDU. A barcamp is advertised as an “un-conference”. Instead of setting up a schedule of speakers, a bunch of people get together and sort of build the speaker list from the attendees. The part I like most about barcamp is hangin’ with folks between presentations. It’s something that is a little harder to do at a conference you pay to attend since no one wants to miss out on the presentations (or at least they pretend not to want to miss them).
If you’d like to sponsor, help plan or volunteer to help out at the event let us know. Check the BarCampRDU wiki for more information on volunteering or contact us via email for questions (dave.johnson at rollerweblogger.org).
