I was just going over the schedule for the upcoming Utah Open Source Conference and I realized that I’ll be presenting one month from today! On Oct 9, 2009, the second day of the conference, I am scheduled for two presentations.
The first is a beginner / intermediate presentation regarding GNOME customization and making use of the gconf tool. You may want to see some of my previous posts here, here and here on the subject. I use the gconf tool anytime I setup a new machine to automate the user interface customization that I’ve grow accustomed to. I’ll be outlining how to find, document and script these customizations for future use.
The second (which happens to be directly after the first!) will introduce and demonstrate 10 of my favorite “required” sysadmin tools. These include tools like tcpdump, ssh and rsync, screen, vim, netstat and more. I imagine this one will be helpful for anyone doing system administration. Hopefully I’ll have a tip or two for everyone!
