NLUUG Spring Conference 2012

This year’s NLUUG Spring Conference is on Operating Systems — a “good ole’” topic for an association for professional UNIX administrators, now broadend to include Open Systems and Open Standards. This edition is special because it’s in cooperation with the NGN, and it’s bigger and broader than other recent NLUUG conferences. You can catch folks […]

NLUUG Fall conference 2011

So, with NLUUG’s spring conference behind us, it’s time to look to the future. A future that actually started 10 years ago but is only now becoming really darn important except that not everyone’s paying attention. I’m talking, of course, about IPv6, not the port of KPresenter to KDE3 by Carsten Niehaus (r86549). The Register […]

NLUUG spring conference 2011

Yesterday (the 12th of May) was the NLUUG Spring conference 2011. The theme was "Open is Efficient" — a theme which can be explained any number of ways. Keynotes were along the theme of the social contract and cooperation, and the technical talks were mostly about cost- and time-savings. I followed three technical talks (the […]

Upcoming Conferences – NLUUG VJ11

The NLUUG, Dutch organization for Open Standards and Open Systems, has been organizing twice-a-year conferences for ages. This will be my last one as a member of the board of the association; it’s been an interesting three (five?) years, but I find I don’t have the time to be properly involved. My daily work is […]

Upcoming Conferences

Two upcoming (in the fall, that is) conferences of note whose calls for papers are still open. FSCONS: the Call for Papers is open until June 30th. FSCONS is a tremendously fun conference because it’s not just software technology, but Free Culture and other things. That means that there is more scope for learning (well, […]

Down with loading!

One peculiarity of Dutch copyright law is the fact that obtaining a copy of a (copyrighted) work that is not offered in a legal fashion (i.e. the person offering the copy does not have a license to do so) does not in itself constitute infringement. In other words, you can take, but you can’t offer. […]

LinuxWorld wrap-up

Two days of LinuxWorld have left me tired by happy. I ended up giving two talks, because Karsten and I made it a double on wednesday and then on Thursday I had another one on best practices in license selection for Free Software projects (one-line summary: pick one that is consisten with your business strategy).

Roundup of NLUUG Fall Conference

Time to put down my NLUUG hat (that’s the purple one, matching the NLUUG color scheme) for this conference round and look back for a moment. It’s good to hear kind words from Sebas about the conference. They pretty much match my impressions of the whole: a conference with strong technical talks (I chaired three, […]

Conference Schedules

Spurred by Henrik’s comment on FSCONS (and I intend to go to FSCONS to talk about licensing, but need to get that together), I thought I’d post an update on some conferences. I’ll be at ELCE later this week to talk about licensing compatibility (and possibly machine architecture). I’m looking forward to it, because the […]
