List of speakers
The following speakers have been accepted,
and indicated their willingness to attend the conference
and present papers and/or tutorials.
- Andrew Tridgell
- In January 1992 as a procrastinating student at the
Australian National University in Canberra, Tridge released
"Server 1.0". In February 2002, he'll stand up in front
of us all and take the first step to recovering from ten
years of Samba.
- Rasmus Lerdorf
- Rasmus is travelling from San Francisco and will give a
4-hour-long tutorial giving a complete introduction to
PHP, with examples from the full range of acronym soup:
SQL, LDAP, XML, XSL/XSLT, SOAP... The list goes on!
- Rusty Russell and Anthony Towns
- No-one seems to know exactly who these gents are, or how
they came to be involved in the conference. I'm sure we'll
find out in the fullness of time.
- Alan Modra
- Alan was bullied by the conference organisers
until he agreed to come---or else!
- David Axmark
- David is a co-founder of MySQL AB. His paper
presentation will describe some of the lesser-known
features of the latest stable release of MySQL, and give
an overview of the new features in the latest alpha
- Neil Brown
- Neil's paper will discuss the changes necessary to the kernel's
NFS server to increase authentication flexibility and overcome
Linux's current NFS service shortcomings.
- Erik de Castro Lopo
- Erik will provide an introduction to digital signal
processing of audio signals, ranging from a brief
introduction to the physics of sound, to the working
and implementation of audio effects such as chorus and
reverb, using the GNU Octave and other Free Software
- Jeff Dike
- Jeff's going to be picking up where he left off at the 2001
conference, and further confuse all those of us who thought there
was a difference between the kernel and usermode.
- John Ferlito
- Large networks are a pain to manage; John will show
how he uses cfengine and FAI to build and manage
hundreds of hosts.
- Bdale Garbee
- Bdale sacrificed many of the letters from his first name to join us
at the conference. He'll be talking about porting Debian GNU/Linux to
PA/RISC and ia64.
- Carsten "Rasterman" Haitzler
- Someone far too disreputable for anyone's good.
- Brad Hards
- Brad's paper will talk about the past, present and
glittery-bright future of Linux USB.
- Simon Horman (AKA "Horms")
- iproxy allows arbitrary TCP/IP services to run over UDP;
Horms will present a 1 hour paper on the problems and solutions
realised when trying to carry TCP connections in this manner.
- Wayne Piekarski
- Wayne presented a paper at las---uh, this year's conference;
he'll be giving a followup paper this year, talking about the
Tinmith Augmented Reality project.
- Allan Rae
- LyX is built on LaTeX. But it's also built on Perl, ispell,
ghostview, imagemagick, nroff, and more. Allan's paper will
show how far one can get by leveraging existing software, as
exemplified by LyX, a GUI document processor.
- Alfred Reynolds
- A busy hour will be filled with Alfred talking about the
design and construction of the Parakeet Virtual Cable, an
embedded Linux project for the Australian Army, and go on to
talk about AdminMod and Open Source Gaming.
- Gavin Sherry
- PostgreSQL and the Berkeley DB3 databases will be compared
and examined in Gavin's tutorial presentation, which will go
on to discuss future direction for both projects.
- David Woodhouse
- JFFS2 (Journalling Flash File System, v2) is a file system
designed for use in embedded devices on flash memory. David will
explain how it works, how it came to be and where it's going next,
and of course why it's so wonderful.
- Greg Ungerer
- Your faithful webmaster cannot find the correct HTML entity
and will instead point out that Greg's presentation will
enlighten us all about micro-controller Linux, which allows
Linux to run on systems without Memory Management Units.
This list will be updated as the conference draws
nearer---check back here for more information!
