The PARALLEL Processing Connection-Meeting Notice

Post by mitche » Sat, 08 Aug 1998 04:00:00



August 10, '98  --  Linux - Getting Involved as a User and/or Contributer

This is the meeting we1ve wanted for some time ... the development of
Linux is a worldwide entrepreneurial effort the results of which challenge
giant Microsoft. On August?10th, Sam Ockman, Pres., Penguin Computing and
Larry?McVoy, CEO, BitMover will provide a wide ranging presentation on
Linux OS.

Sam and Larry will begin with a short history of the Free Software
movement, starting with Richard Stallman, and the Free Software
Foundation. Then they will show us how commercial companies intersect and
interact with the independent Linux developers.  They1ll discuss how
kernel development is done, and how one can get involved in kernel
development/code development ... very important!

Our speakers will discuss symmetric multi-processing (SMP) and compute
clusters under Linux.  They1ll look at what still needs to be done for
Linux ... in general, and in support of Parallel Processing and how one
can go about doing these things.

** BTW, Linus Torvalds knows about this meeting and may attend!

The main meeting starts promptly at 7:30PM at Sun Microsystems at 901 San
Antonio Road in Palo Alto.  This is just off the southbound San Antonio
exit of 101.  Northbound travelers also exit at San Antonio and take the
overpass to the other side of 101.  A discussion of member projects
currently underway and other issues of interest to entrepreneurs follows
immediately thereafter at 9:15PM.

Please be prompt; as usual, we expect a large attendance; don't be left
out or left standing.  There is a $12 fee for non-members and members will
be admitted free.  Yearly membership fee is $65.
