Portland, Ore.-July 26, 2001- The Open Source
Development Lab (OSDL), an independent, vendor-neutral, non-profit
organization dedicated to enabling Linux for enterprise and
carrier-class functionality, today announced the addition of two
software engineers well-known in the open source community for
their Linux expertise and ability to develop sound code.
Zach Brown and Randy Dunlap join the OSDL team of seasoned Linux
professionals supporting open source development worldwide by
lending their expertise to a wide range of projects, providing
analysis and recommendations throughout the project cycle, while
also contributing work of their own to the Linux community.
"OSDL is fortunate to have added this depth and breadth of Linux
expertise to its team of lab engineers," says Tim Witham, lab
director. "We welcome Randy and Zach, who will undoubtedly be
integral components to the increased visibility of the lab and the
enterprise functionality of Linux."
Brown, 24, has contributed to the Linux kernel with the sound
OSS driver for the ESS Maestro3 and has spent most of his career
working on the Linux development and maintenance of Linux servers.
His prior experience includes work at Red Hat, Intel and
Zero-Knowledge Systems. Before joining OSDL, Brown was a member of
the scalability group at Zero-Knowledge Systems, a provider of
privacy-enabling products and services. There he provided Linux
expertise and implemented software and protocol that increased the
speed, security and efficiency of the Freedom server. Brown has
also contributed to a number of Linux initiatives including Cisco's
NetAid project, the ZD-Net retest of MindCraft Inc.'s Linux/NT
benchmark comparison and hftpd, a threaded FTP server discussed at
the Ottawa Linux Symposium. Brown is currently serving as a member
of the program committee for the Annual Linux Showcase in November
Holding a Masters degree in Information and Computer Science
from Georgia Tech, Randy Dunlap has spent over 25 years in the
field of software development and hardware/software co-design and
co-development. He has worked with an array of systems and networks
including multi-user minicomputers (operating systems, firmware,
and communications software development), NetWare network drivers
and SCSI drivers. Prior to joining OSDL, Dunlap was the Linux USB
subsystem maintainer while at Intel.
