As I mentioned in a previous post, I did a presentation on James at the monthly RLUG meeting.
It went good, the people seamed interested. My presentation was in Romanian, as the slides and they will be available soon on ProLinux slideshare account. Nicu, a Fedora Ambassador and a friend filmed the event and he will upload the video presentations on blip sometime next week.
I was the first to present so the crowd (about 12 people) was fresh. I pointed out some general things about James because most of the audience where general open-source enthusiasts so I did not go into (that many :D) details. Well I tried. I emphasized the Mailet part and talked about HBase mail storage I am working on.
There where a couple of sys-admins there that managed some mail servers. They pointed out that James seemed more like an enterprise solution, than a solution for someone with more basic needs.
I really did not know how to respond to that. I tend to believe this is not true, but I hope to find out soon (get working experience in this field) and get back to them.
All in all it went well. I left with the impression that I did not bore them. After the presentations we went, as usual, to further discuss the matter at a local „restaurant” (not actually, but I can't find the name for terasă in English).
