Every year in April the users and creators of the Condor Open source scheduling solution meet in Madison WI, for Condor Week.
In the past my employer, Microsoft, has strongly encouraged the implementation of Condor on Windows. When we introduced our own job scheduler we fell off the speaker schedule at the conference.
This year we will be returning, with our Esteemed Frank Chism discussing the interoperability between Condor and Windows. You might ask why this is the subject of a blog focused on Actuarial issues? The answer is, that the worlds largest actuarial modeling cluster runs Condor and Windows.
See you in Madison, WI. The best part of the conference for me is telling everyone that I live in Madison, CT while visiting Madison, WI.
