LJ Staff at Open Source Conference

Join the Linux Journal team at O'Reilly's Open Source Conference in Monterey, California the week of July 17. LJ Technical Editor Don Marti and Publisher Phil Hughes will both be present at the show, searching for new authors and stories to bring to you. Stop by Linux Journal's booth and say "hi" to the LJ crew while picking up a current issue of the magazine.

Speaking of our favorite Publisher....

Sick of hearing about Perl, Python and Java as the only way to do scripting on your Linux system? Well, if so, the "Programming Without Perl" tutorial may be what you are looking for. Presented by Linux Journal's very own Phil Hughes, this class will show you how tr, cut, awk, sed, Bash and grep can do some pretty exciting stuff for you without the steep learning curve of a language such as Perl.

Phil has been awking and grepping for 20 years and has lived to tell about it. The tutorial will be presented in the morning on Monday, July 17.
