BALLARAT, 7th October 2011
Adding to the sparkling array of speakers and events already announced - including Haecksen/LinuxChix, Arduino and Humanitarian FOSS, linux.conf.au organisers today confirmed that a High Availability Miniconference would feature in January's conference.
The Miniconf will feature presentations on technologies such as cluster resource management, cluster messaging, clustered filesystems, lock management, distributed storage and clustering of databases.
Hobart-based Miniconference co-organiser Tim Serong, of SUSE, was over the moon about the announcement.
"In the 10 years since High Availability on Linux came into being, the community has grown and matured, and several HA projects are thriving - indeed, HA systems on Linux now rival or exceed the capabilities of proprietary systems. The Miniconf will help to bring together developers and users of high availability and distributed storage and further strengthen the community and its knowledge base."
Stewart Smith, of Percona, is co-organising the miniconference.
Calls for Papers are now available at http://tinyurl.com/ha-lca2012-cfp and will close Sunday November 6th.
Tim can be contacted for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org, while Stewart can be contacted at email@example.com.
Miniconfs - miniature conferences - are community-organised sessions designed to bring together like-minded delegates with interests in a specific field. They are run within the framework of the broader event, and provide excellent opportunities for professional networking and developing presentation experience.
linux.conf.au will be held 16th-20th January 2012 in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. http://lcaunderthestars.org.au and @linuxconfau on Twitter and Identica. Early bird registrations are open until the end of October.
