The International Symposium on Linux will be held in Amsterdam on December 8 and 9, 1994. This event will take place in the RAI Congress Centre. Students get in cheap for about $50, others must pay about $75.
The event is sponsored by the ICCE, University of Groningen, and is organized by Frank B. Brokken, Karel Kubat, and Piet W. Plomp. This non-profit group is planning on lowering the entrance fees if enough attendees register.
The most current information about the symposium is available via anonymous ftp at beatrix.icce.rug.nl in the directory pub/symposium. It is refreshed daily, and contains a list of speakers, a list of interested attendees, and information about local hotels. The organizers of the symposium can be reached at email@example.com.
Some of the twenty-five speakers already scheduled include Bob Amstadt, Remy Card, Michael K. Johnson, Linus Torvalds, Theodore Ts'o, and Matt Welsh. Formal lecture topics include “Viability of Linux”, Ham radio and Linux, “Typesetting, X and MS-Windows”, “Linux and UnixWare; a comparison”, “Linux in Biostatistic Research”, “Development of Linux and the Role of the Expert Community”, “Onyx”, Wine, and “Programming in a Multi-Threaded Environment”.

The week before all the fun starts in Amsterdam, Linux Journal will be hosting the Linux Track at Open Systems World. This event, previously known as FedUNIX, is a week-long affair and will be held in Washington, D.C. from November 28 until December 2, 1994.
This is a chance to rub elbows with SCO, Solaris, Novell, and Microsoft, who will all be there hosting their own conferences, helping to bring in some of the 10,000+ expected attendees. This is a huge opportunity to present Linux to a large number of government and corporate IS managers, administrators and executives, systems integrators, hardware and software developers, industry analysts and journalists.
The Linux Track will include two days of tutorials and panel discussions presented by some well-known personalities in the Linux Community, including Bob Amstadt, Eric Youngdale, and Don Becker. Currently planned topics include commercial use and future of Linux, Wine, Linux and NASA, legal implications of using and developing tools and applications on Linux, iBCS2 compati-bility, X Windows System on Linux, a beginner's clinic, Linux and the Internet, relationship between Linux resellers and the Linux development community, Linux capabilities, and how to convince your boss/employer/ customer to use Linux.
For those of you who are not able to go to the International Symposium in Amsterdam, Open Systems World is a chance to participate in a conference on the other side of the Atlantic. And those of you who are going to the Netherlands can use the Open Systems World event as a spring-board before your journey.
Keep a watch out here in Linux Journal for more information in the November issue.
Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
