Linux Journal will be hosting the Linux International Users Conference at the 6th Annual Open Systems World/FedUNIX '94. The event is being held at the Washington Conference Center, Washington, D.C, during the week of November 28, and the two-day Linux Confer-ence will be on Thursday and Friday, December 1-2.
Eight other conferences will be held during the week, including Federal Open Systems Conference, Motif/COSE International Users Conference, Novell AppWare Developers Conference, SCO Interoperability Confer-ence, Solaris Developers Conference, Windows NT Developers Conference, and the Word Wide Web/Mosaic Users Conference. The event is expected to attract over 10,000 attendees, so this is a great opportunity for Linux to show its stuff!
The Linux Track will include tutorials, panel discussions and presentations by some well-known personalities in the Linux Community, including Bob Amstadt, Eric Youngdale, Don Becker, Phil Hughes, Przemek Klosowski, Dirk Hohndel, Michael K. Johnson, David Wexelblat, and Matt Welsh. Sessions will cover the history of Linux, Linux and the Internet, Wine, the commercial future of Linux, Linux and NASA, legal implications of using and developing tools and applications on Linux, iBCS2 compatibility, X Windows System on Linux, a clinic for the novice user, and how to convince your boss/employer/customer to use Linux.
There will be Birds of a Feather sessions at the hotel on Thursday evening, with discussions on systems administration, Internet connectivity, and hackers; fun with Linux.

One short week after the Open Systems World event in the United States, the International Symposium on Linux will be held in Amsterdam. The RAI Congress Centre is the place, December 8 and 9 are the dates, and the organizers are Frank B. Brokken, Karel Kubat, and Piet W. Plomp of the ICCE, University of Groningen.
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, “Programming in a Multi-Threaded Environment”.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
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
