Open Source Conf – topics/talks/speakers so far
Well I seem to be getting some feed back via the blog, ILUG mailing list and twitter. So many mediums and messages left in multiple areas I said I’d do up a small update of what I’d collected so far. This update is by no means final and I welcome any more suggestions of topics and speakers (hint!!)
Speakers who have expressed an interest and topics they would like to talk on.
Patrick Collison – Fom his language necrophilia, he is willing to talk about badass interactive dev environments — Genera from the Lisp machines of olde, SLIME and such from modern Lisp implementations, Squeak Smalltalk, etc.
Bryn M. Reeves – Red Hat – Magicing LVM back from oblivion under the “Data Recovery”
Alan Cox – Red Hat – still to confirm fully.
Qamir Hussain – Ruby Ireland – Using open source tools in the tech business, i.e. How my business uses them and the advantages/ disadvanges of them.
Noirin Shirley – Open Source – More Than Code; Understanding Open Source Licenses; Open Source – Collaboration Tools.
Php Ireland – hopefully
Topics that folks want to hear about but I need speakers for:
- Using linux based tools to developfor embedded systems that don’t necessarily have an operating system installed.
- How advancements in open source virtulization techology like XenSource is changing things.
