  OSDL - The Open Source Development Lab


  Wednesday, June 1, 2005
  7pm-9pm or so.


  Bill Weinberg, Open Source Architecture Specialist, OSDL


  Mr. Weinberg will provide an introduction to the Open Source Development Lab
  ( http://www.osdl.org/ ), its initiatives (Carrier Grade Linux,
  Data Center Linux and Desktop Linux), an update on how Linux is doing in
  the marketplace, and insight into the Linux kernel development process.

  He will close with a call to action -- how SVLUG can members work with
  the OSDL and participate in their initiatives and lab activities.


  OSDL -- home to Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux -- is dedicated
  to accelerating the growth and adoption of Linux in the enterprise.
  Founded in 2000 and supported by a global consortium of IT industry
  leaders, OSDL is a non-profit organization that provides state of the art
  computing and test facilities in the United States and Japan available to
  developers around the world.

  OSDL's founding members are IBM, HP, CA, Intel, and NEC.  It's currently
  made up of 75 members from more than 10 computing industry segments.
  (See: http://groups.osdl.org/osdl_members/ )


  Bill Weinberg brings over 18 years of open systems, embedded, and
  other IT experience to his role as Open Source Architecture Specialist
  and Linux Evangelist at the Open Source Development Labs, where he
  participates in OSDL initiatives for Carrier-Grade, Data Center, and
  Desktop Linux.

  Prior to OSDL, Bill was a founding team-member at MontaVista Software,
  and helped establish Linux as a favored platform for next-generation
  intelligent device development.  In his extensive and varied career,
  Bill also worked at Lynx Real-Time Systems, Acer Computer, and
  Microtec Research.

  Today Bill is known for his writing and speaking on topics that
  include Open Source licensing, international adoption of Linux,
  embedded/real-time computing, application porting/migration, and
  Linux-based consumer electronics and handheld applications.  He is a
  regular contributor periodicals such as E.E. Times, Applied Computing,
  LinuxUser, Elektronik, and Embedded Systems Europe, and has been a
  featured speaker at Intel Developer Forum, ESC, and LinuxWorld.
