An Applied Technology Conference
Users and IT Decision Makers
What is it?
Linux Bangalore/2001 is a three day conference on understanding and using
Linux technologies. This conference aims to cover a large number of areas
that include core Linux technologies, Open Source, Embedded Systems and
other allied technologies.
The primary audience for this event will be the core (or potential) Linux-using
community of developers (/dev), system administrators (/adm), users
(/usr) and CxO/Managers/Decision makers (/cxo).
Each track will include introductory, technical, how-to and tutorial
sessions, catering to "newbies" (people new to Linux) to "gurus" (people
who know Linux in and out).
New technologies and their implementation/application under Linux will be
discussed as well, making this a technology conference to remember.
In addition to this, we also intend to provide assistance to new
users and more information to technology enthusiasts.
The event is for three days, with multiple tracks and with six sessions
every day from 10 am to 5 pm, plus Birds-of-Feather (BoF) sessions at the
end of the day. There will be an estimated 70 talks. In addition we plan to
hold separate workshops, tutorials, case studies and demonstrations.
Speakers for this event will be drawn from the Indian Linux community,
as well as the IT industry.
We have decided to make entry free for all. We feel that it is
the present student community that is going to drive the phenomenal
growth of Linux in the days to come and it would be doing injustice
if they find the event costs prohibitive.
At the same time, we see no need to make employees run to their managers to
get budget approval just so that they can attend this event. As long as you
can get an approval for $0/Rs.0 from your company, you can attend!
This event will be organized between December 10 and 12, 2001
at the J. N. Tata auditorium at IISc in Bangalore, India.
This event is managed by the following BLUG members:
- Mahendra M (BLUG Coordinator)
- Jessica Prabhakar
- Biju Chacko
- Syed Khader Vali
- Kingsly John
- Kalyan Varma Alluri
- Vineeth S
- Madhu M. Kurup
