Speaking at linux.conf.au, meet us in Ballarat!

January 5, 2012

After last year’s talk in Brisbane, where I greatly enjoyed co-presenting with Tim Serong, I have the privilege of returning to Australia for this year’s linux.conf.au in Ballarat, Victoria.

This time I have a brief talk opening up the High Availability and Distributed Storage miniconf on Monday, January 16, and a tutorial entitled High Availability Sprint in the morning on Thursday, January 19. Tim Serong is again joining me for the tutorial, and Pacemaker author Andrew Beekhof will be chiming in too. See you all in Ballarat!
