Zones are an operating system abstraction for partitioning systems, allowing multiple applications to run in isolation from each other on the same physical hardware. This isolation prevents processes running within a zone from monitoring or affecting processes running in other zones, seeing each other's data, or manipulating the underlying hardware.
We are a group of geeks from Barcelona (in Spain) that we want to share our experiences and knowledge related with this development language that gives us so many joys and headaches ;-). We would engage people to think, opine, ask and share and everybody is welcomed and we would like to listen as many suggestions as will be possible.
Http server for mobile devices or the Internet. Build lightweight networks of service-based components (SOA).
