Some of you may remember that a number of years ago, we held a
Bacula Conference in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. I really enjoyed
this conference and found it very useful. Since then, we have been
unable to hold anotherone due to lack of resources. I am very pleased
to announce that we are planning a bigger and better conference to be
held in Berlin, Germany on the 21st of March 2014.
This is a conference for all Bacula users as well as Bacula Partners. It
is being sponsored by Bacula Systems, but is oriented specifically towards
Your presence will be important as it will provide you with insights
plans for the community version; show the best ways to take advantage
- as a community user - of Bacula Enterprise Edition features, outline
new Bacula Training program, develop specific technical show cases, provide
you with an update on Open Source directly from theFree Software
Foundation Europe and talk about specific case studies.
I see at least 5 major reasons to attend:
1. To get an update on the community version product strategy, planned
features and input your ideas and needs
2. To hear - from the source - what is going on in Open Source,
with Karsten Gerloff, President of FSFE
3. To meet with me, share experiences with Bacula users,
Bacula Systems customers and Partners
4.To meet with the developers from the community as well as
from Bacula Systems and see how they contribute to the
evolution of Bacula
5. To meet, connect and share while enjoying the dinner offered
by Bacula Systems the evening before the Conference day
Since this is a worldwide event, allconference presentations will be
given in English.
A dinner, sponsored by Bacula Systems, will be offered on the 20th of March
commencing at 8pm. Please, be sure to arrive on time.
Please mark the date of 21 March 2014 (and the evening before for our
in your calendars. Shortly, I will send you moreinformation about the
exact conference location, reduced hotels rates, presentations and the
I am hoping to meet as many of you as possibleduring this
Bacula Users & Partners Conference,
