Live video stream of LinuxCon 2009 highlights
The highlights of LinuxCon 2009, a conference organised by the Linux Foundation, will be available as a live video stream using the open CODECs Ogg / Theora, viewed via a Web browser Java applet. Alternatively, they may be viewed via an embedded player such as RealPlayer, MPlayer or the Windows Media Player. The keynote presentations will be provided free of charge, while a fee of €84 will be charged for the rest of the conference program and the use of the video archive. The service is an initiative of Linux New Media AG.
LinuxCon, originally announced in October of last year, takes place in Portland, Oregon from the 21st to the 23rd of September. Modelled after the Linux Plumbers Conference, the event will be held annually and is aimed at Linux developers and users, as well as hardware and software suppliers.
Confirmed keynote speakers include openSUSE Community Manager Joe Brockmeier, Chief Technologist for Open Source and Linux at HP Bdale Garbee, Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth and Vice President of Open Source and Linux for IBM Bob Sutor. The Keynote Panel will feature Linux creator Linus Torvalds participating in a round table discussion on the Linux Kernel and the future of Linux.
The event will include several business, developer and operations presentations, including presentations on enterprise open source, embedded Linux, the economic downturn and green Linux. Tutorials, such as Kernel development, networking and security, will also be taking place.
