Aug 28, 2000, 15:40 (0 Talkback[s])

"Linux kernel developers Alan Cox and David Miller will both be speaking at linux.conf.au, a community focused conference taking place in Sydney, Australia in January 2001. This conference continues the tradition of the Conference of Australian Linux Users (CALU) which was held in July 1999 in Melbourne, Australia."

"Linux.Conf.au will mark Alan Cox's first visit to Australia. Cox has worked on almost every part of the Linux kernel, providing an early networking implementation and maintaining the 2.2 stable series of kernels. More recently he designed the Video for Linux kernel interface and has worked on modularising the sound drivers. His partner, Telsa Gwynne, has strongly supported the GNOME project, writing documentation and taming the bug report system. She intends to run a user/developer bug tracking forum at the conference."

"David Miller wrote the original Linux port to the SPARC family of processors, developed the MIPS port as a college intern at SGI, and worked on the team that developed the Cobalt Qube. At CALU in 1999, he presented a radical redesign of the way Linux handles incoming network packets. He has since implemented this in the version 2.3 development kernels."
