The 3rd International Linux Kongress will be held May 23 and 24, 1996 at the Haus am Koellnischen Park in Berlin (Tagungszentrum Berlin Mitte). It follows the tradition of the Linux/Internet conference series (Heidelberg 1994 and Berlin 1995) which has been since its inception one of the most important meetings for Linux experts and developers. The conference is a must for those who are interested in Linux technology and applications.
The main focus of the forthcoming conference is on current developments of Linux and its various components. However, since Linux has become a well-established and widespread system, the development of applications and usage in commercial environments—even for mission critical purposes—is another major conference topic. Moreover, the Internet in the context of current Linux developments will be covered by various talks and presentations.
Key speakers of the conference will be Linus Torvalds, Theodore T'so and Alan Cox. Because of the growing commercial interest in Linux, a trade show will be part of the conference, featuring companies that offer products based on or using Linux.
The conference will be organized by GUUG (Association of German Unix Users) and supported by several companies (ASKnet, Fachbuchhandlung Lehmanns, Lunetix, Thinking Objects) and publishers (Addison-Wesley, dpunkt, Thomson/O'Reilly). Any profits from this event will be used to support Free Software Projects.
The First Conference on Freely Redistributable Software (sponsored by the Free Software Foundation) will take place Friday to Monday, February 2-5, 1996 at the Cambridge Center Marriott in Cambridge, MA. Keynote speakers will be Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman. The conference will feature two days of tutorials on Linux (Phil Hughes), Advanced Emacs and GCC (Richard Stallman) expect (Don Libes), PERL (Tom Christenson), and other topics, as well as refereed papers.
Peter Salus will give seminars entitled ''Linux: An Open System For Everyone'' and “Installing and Running Linux.” The first seminar will look at Linux from its beginnings through its current capabilities, including a look at what some companies are currently doing with Linux. The seminar will conclude with a look at the future of Linux. Peter's second seminar will consist of a ''Look Under the Hood'' covering what makes up a Linux system, what you need, how to install it and what to do when something goes wrong. Interconnectivity options will also be addressed. Requests for registration materials and full programs may be made by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org); phone (617-542-5942) or fax (617-542-2652).
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
