DO NOT MISS THE EUROPEAN BSD EVENT OF THE YEAR
September 14th - 15th 2007
The sixth EuroBSDCon - the annual European BSD conference for users
and developers begins Friday September 14th. It's being held at
Symbion Science Park in Copenhagen, Denmark. Come, meet and talk to
BSD people from all over the world.
20+ interesting speakers in a program which includes:
Kirk McKusick: Kirk is the epitome of BSD - an all-time Berkley guy
will talk about the history of the UFS file system.
Sam Leffler: Sam is another of the original BSD people. For a while
he has been working a lot with wireless networks and and his name can
be found in a lot of the open source wireless code. At the conference
he will be talking about long distance wireless.
Marc Balmer: Marc became an active OpenBSD developer in 2004 and has
since be responsible for several prominent OpenBSD projects. At the
conference he will talk about Support for Radio Clocks in OpenNTPD.
Steven Murdoch: Steven is working on computer security research at
Cambridge University and he will be talking about hidden channels
between computers which even the best firewall cannot close.
John Hartmann: Very few if any UNIX people have heard about John
Hartmann, despite the fact that he completed the work Dennis and Ken
started with pipes. John will talk about "CMS pipes" a minor and
cheap entry in the IBM product catalogue which is a radical
generalization of the UNIX pipe concept.
