The Kernel Report
|Time:||10:30 - 11:15|
|Day:||Wednesday 20 January 2010|
|Location:||Main Auditorium (MFC)|
The Linux kernel is at the core of any Linux system; the performance and capabilities of the kernel will, in the end, place an upper bound on what the system as a whole can do. This talk will review recent events in the kernel development community, discuss the current state of the kernel and the challenges it faces, and look forward to how the kernel may address those challenges. Attendees of any technical ability should gain a better understanding of how the kernel got to its current state and what can be expected in the near future.
(In other words, the usual talk that we know and love)
