Our BoF session at LISA was probably a real treat to anyone familiar with Core 3.x. It actually provided a first technical preview to some of the major things coming to Core 4. Due to scheduling conflicts at the show, attendance wasn't too impressive, but most everyone seemed very interested in what I had to say. Retrospectively, I thought to myself that the content would actually be quite valuable for users as well as customers well outside of the select crowd at LISA. While we at Zenoss obviously claim an x-times speed improvement, no one really has done a compare-and-contrast between Zenoss 3.x and 4.x -- and definitely not from a technical perspective.
Thanks to Travis' foresight and hard work we now have an awesome video of the whole session, and I hope you get something out of it. Keep in mind that this isn't called "A Gentle Introduction to Core 4", instead I wanted to focus on an audience that is somewhat familiar with Zenoss 3.x. Hope you guys get something out of it, comments and questions are welcome. Video below, slides are available from: http://www.slideshare.net/Zenoss/bofsession-111212170827phpapp02
