Mr. Torvalds Goes to Washington
Once again, the US Chapter of DECUS, the DEC Users Group, is bringing Linus Torvalds, famous for his work with Linux (and for feeding Australian penguins) to the Spring US DECUS Symposium. This event is scheduled for the week of May 6-11 at the convention center in Washington DC.
Unlike what we did at the Spring `94 Symposium in New Orleans (where Linus gave a couple of technical talks), we are planning an entire day of Linux-related sessions on Wednesday, and a half-day seminar by Linus himself on Thursday. The Linux stream and seminar are going to be specially priced to make them easier to attend. In addition, we are going to have several Linux systems available in the UNIX SIG Campground, as well exhibits from a variety of Linux vendors.
Why should you be interested in this conference? Well, Linux does run on a large number of the PC platforms that Digital sells and supports. In addition, Digital (and Linus) are working on a port of Linux to the Alpha AXP architecture (imagine your Linux system running at 300+ MIPS). Digital has announced that an advance developer's kit (ADK) for the Digital Alpha PC is available on gatekeeper.pa.dec.com. One of the scheduled sessions deals with that porting effort.
Why else? Well, this is a rare opportunity to see and listen to Linus Torvalds, outside of Europe and Down-Under. Combine that with the rest of what is being offered at the Spring 95 US DECUS Symposium, and you have a conference well worth attending.
For additional information on the Spring `95 DECUS US Symposium is available in the US DECUS home page at www.decus.org, or request a registration kit by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or giving the DECUS office a call at 1-800-DECUS-55.
Kurt Reisler (email@example.com) is the Chair of the DECUS UNIX SIG, the captain of the UNISIG International Luge Team, and a collector of teddy bears. Although he has been running Linux for only a year, he has been involved with UNIX for the past 18 years.
