Some of you might remember, long ag, that I asked for some feedback regarding a presentation at Ubuntu Live 2008. Well, as it turns out the Ubuntu Live conference was cancelled by my presentation was migrated to OSCON instead. I’m pretty excited to be going to OSCON this year, especially as a speaker. I went last year, but just to work in a booth as a volunteer. This year will be a much more fun!
If you’re going to be at OSCON come and say hello. I’ll be presenting:
LTS Tutorials : Using Ubuntu in the Enterprise – 10:45 on 23 Jul 2008
I’ll be covering things like automated installations with kickstart and preseed, automated “stack” setup with the server installer (LAMP, etc), basic security with ufw, and more. I think it’ll be a lot of fun and I hope to be able to show how Ubuntu Server can make Enterprise Linux simpler while remaining just as stable and secure as anything else.
