LinuxCon Keynotes Announced, Early Bird Reg Extended through Tomorrow
The Linux Foundation is pleased to announce the keynotes for this
year's highly anticipated LinuxCon, taking place in Boston from August
10 to 12, 2010. Just like LinuxCon, these keynotes represent leaders
from community, industry and end users.
*Ravi Simhambhatla, vice president and chief information officer at
Virgin America. Simhambhatla will share how he sold the use of Linux
and open source to internal colleagues and how he and his teams are
maximizing it today.
*Eben Moglen, founding director of the Software Freedom Law Center
(SFLC). Moglen will discuss legal defense strategies for Linux and
open source software projects, including an update on GPLv2 and GPLv3
*Stormy Peters, executive director of the GNOME Foundation. Peters
will explore how data is being stored and accessed in the cloud and
what that means for Linux and open source.
*Jeffrey S. Hammond, principal analyst, Forrester Research. Hammond
will present recent data that shows increased developer adoption of
open source platforms, frameworks and development processes as well as
heightened awareness by IT management of the benefits of a mixed
source development model.
*The Linux Kernel Roundtable Panel. The Linux Kernel Roundtable will
include a hand-selected group of top maintainers that include: James
Bottomley, Novell distinguished engineer and Linux Kernel maintainer
of the SCSI subsystem, the Linux Voyager port and the 53c700 driver;
Jon Corbet, Linux kernel developer and editor, Linux Weekly News
(LWN); Dave Jones, Fedora kernel maintainer; Chris Mason; director of
Linux kernel engineering at Oracle and creator of the btrfs file
system; and Ted Ts'o, North America's first kernel developer and
fellow at Google.
LinuxCon brings together technical and business leadership for
unmatched opportunities to collaborate and learn about all matters
Linux. In its debut year (2009), the conference sold out and was host
for sessions that addressed developer, business and operations topics
in a lively and collaborative atmosphere.
LinuxCon welcomes everyone who has a stake in Linux. Linux users and
developers will meet and learn from their peers as well as teach
others, such as up-and-coming developers and new Linux users. LinuxCon
eliminates the traditional tradeshow environment to provide a forum
where attendees can educate themselves on the latest technical
advances of the Linux platform.
