Kirk McKusick to be a Keynote Speaker at Ohio LinuxFest 2013
Ohio LinuxFest is very pleased to announce that Kirk McKusick has accepted our invitation to be a keynote speaker at OLF 2013.
Dr. Marshall Kirk McKusick's work with Unix and BSD development spans over thirty years. It begins with his first paper on the implementation of Berkeley Pascal in 1979, goes on to his pioneering work in the eighties on the BSD Fast File System, the BSD virtual memory system, the final release of 4.4BSD-Lite from the UC Berkeley Computer Systems Research Group, and carries on with his work on FreeBSD. A key figure in Unix and BSD development, his experiences chronicle not only the innovative technical achievements but also the interesting personalities and philosophical debates in Unix over the past thirty years.
Ohio LinuxFest 2013 will take place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on September 13-15, 2013.
