Below you will find some information on a number of interesting events in the Netherlands, some of those in part related to GNU/Linux, others completely dedicated to Linux.

An URL, where you can find more information, is presented by each description. Except the ne2000 event I have visited these events last year and they were well worth my time. I think that ne2000 is also worth some time, at least I will present this year a workshop there.

Have fun,

NLUUG spring conference 2001 - Mai 31, 2001 - Ede, the Netherlands

The Unix Users Group the Netherlands NLUUG (http://www.nluug.nl/) will have their next spring conference at Mai 31, 2001 in congress centre "De Reehorst" in Ede, the Netherlands.

Topic of this conference is UNIX and High Availability and 17 different lectures will be presented. I have not scimmed all of them but at least 5 of them are pure GNU/Linux oriented :

  • Linux FailSafe, ready for prime time?!, Wim de Jong
  • Linux High Availability Overview, Lars Marowsky-Brée
  • A Communication Fault Injection Tool to Validate Linux Clusters, Fábio Olivé Leite
  • DRBD, Philipp Reisner
  • High Availability VPN solutions, Guus Sliepen & Ivo Timmermans

I don't know if the lectures of Chel van Gennip and Erik Meinders are related to Free Software but if so I wouldn't be amazed.

You can find the program at http://www.nluug.nl/events/vj01/algemeen/index.html, where you have the links to the abstracts at hand.

This year ne2000 will organise a new edition of networking event 2000. ne2000 is intended to attrack people from the whole world who are interested in nice and social contacts and learn to know people with the same interests in the computer business.

At the event you can enjoy yourself beside your own computer, the bar and other visitors with a couple of presentations, workshops and competitions.

ne2000 is held this year from July 19 till 25 in Nuenen (The Netherlands, South). We expect around 400 visitors from many countries. Most will come from the Netherlands

At ne2000 at least two workshops will be presented on GNU/Linux and security. One of those workshops is titled "How to build a secure GNU/Linux server". I know, I have promised to do this one ;-).
