So I’ve been meaning to put a post on this but I haven’t had a chance thanks to school and what not. Having finished my exams and projects, I thought I would put in a word or two regarding the other thing I’ve been busy with and that is the Linux Plumbers Conference. This is my second year in a row in being part of the organizing committee of Linux Plumbers Conference!
Linux Plumbers Conference is one of those small conferences organized by developers for developers and thus have a highly technical focus. As a bonus, it’s held the same week as Linuxcon so you can get your taste of the O’Reilly type conference as well if laundry is an issue. :-) The goal is to improve the Linux platform, targetting the weaknesses and improving them. Last year we had the fast boot by Intel which started a distro war over boot time. and we had a piece of X put into the kernel, so things happen at this conference.
We are currently looking for paper submussions. Have an idea for the desktop but you need kernel developer support? This is your chance! Thanks to Jim Gettys to being our runner for the UI track. So if you have ideas that will help advance the Linux platform/ecosystem. Please submit your ideas! The conference is in Portland, OR Sept 23-25, 2009. I hope to see a lot of you there. As many can attest, Portland is an awesome city with some of the coolest people on the planet living here.
