Between the 4th and 6th of June 2007, INRIA, the IT research institute of France, hosted in Paris the first edition of OpenSER Advanced Programming Course. The teachers were myself and Bogdan-Andrei Iancu.
We focused on the internals of OpenSER application, touching delicate subjects as memory manager, locking system, data lumps, pseudo-variables, module development a.s.o. The three days were a good opportunity to discuss also about future plans, what should be nice to have, where is the current bottle neck. All agreed that some work in interfacing with database has to be done, maybe some efforts to make parts of script reloading, lumps applying, and, if possible, some asynchronous processing in regard to TCP and DNS.
The attendants span several countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Germany, Italy, UK, Romania, Sweden, and, of course, France.
