It’s high time we shared the news: the 7th Conference on LDAP, Directory Services and Identity Management will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria. November 4th is set aside for workshops, November 5th and 6th will be the regular sessions.
Situated at the crossroads between the east and the west, Sofia is nearly 7,000 years old and steeped in historical significance. It’s also the largest city in Bulgaria, one of the top-10 locations in the world for startups, especially tech, and one of Europe’s most affordable cities. Other attractions include good wine, great food that represents Balkan and Oriental cuisine, and a great view to the Vitosha mountain, making it a perfect location for the next LDAPCon.
Topics of interest will include service design, LDAP schema, protocol enhancements, server technology and client programming.
There will be ample opportunities to meet other LDAP specialists including the central figures in the development teams of many well-known server products.
Monday, November 4, is a workshop day. You will need a laptop with VirtualBox installed, the presenters will provide you with the images necessary to complete the workshop. After that, at 7 PM, we have planned an informal gathering for dinner and drinks at the “Happy” Bar and Grill, 2-3 minutes walk from the “Aleksander Malinov” Metro station (right next to the BILLA grocery store). This is not included in the conference ticket.
The instructions for LemonLDAP::NG workshop can be found here.
Tuesday, November 5, begins the session part of the conference. We have many interesting talks in store for you, followed by the conference dinner. Transportation by bus is arranged to the city center on the way to the restaurant.
Wednesday, November 6th, concludes the conference. Again, many exciting talks will be presented, ending with a “free for all” session of lightning talks, where attendees can present small talks of their choice, or discuss topics of interest.
