UK Linux Developers' Conference, Bristol, 4-7 July 2002

Posted 5 May 2002 at 02:41 UTC by dan Share This

Once again, a wide cross-section of the Linux development community will gather at the start of July for the UK Unix User Group's summer technical conference.

The conference moves about the UK from year to year: in 2002 we're visiting Bristol which has Brunel's magnificent Suspension Bridge.

Speakers will travel from nine countries around the globe to present their work and form the largest programme to-date. It begins on Thursday 4th July with tutorials on Shared Libraries, given by Ulrich Drepper, the glibc maintainer, and the Linux Terminal Server Project, given by the project's founder, Jim McQuillan.

After a Linux printing workshop on Friday morning (CUPS/KDEPrint), the conference proper begins at lunchtime and runs through to Sunday lunchtime.

It would seem rude not to go to this, considering I'm in the maths department at Bristol Uni... Nice and cheap, too.

I should read the front page more often.

Do people still send cards these days? A little surprise goes a long way. My boss orchestrated a big surprise for me before my son was born. It is my opinion that chain cards aren't bad if they are true surprises for both the receiver and the deliver, espcially when the whole scheme comes out of a beautiful mind.

hiya susan,

yes i'll be there. i'll be doing an overview of the freedce code, for people who may be interested in getting to grips with it. it's only 250,000 lines of code, which is tiny compared to a lot of open source projects, these days.

it's extremely well-written, so doesn't actually need any maintenance, just additions and some security bug-fixes. it is, after all, a reference implementation.

also, sander's coming over to do a talk on subversion. it'll be nice to see him again.
