Bob Smith and Bill Pierce, Linux Appliance Design

Join us as Bob Smith and Bill Pierce, two of the authors of No
Starch's book Linux Appliance Design describe the components used in
the book's sample appliance. The talk will focus on what each
appliance component does, why you might want the component in your
appliance, how the component ties to the other components, and how to
install and configure the component.

A partial list of the components to be covered includes:

    * Appliance architecture
    * Run-Time-Access: How to talk to a running daemon
    * Two ways to use logging to respond to appliance events
    * A sample front panel interface
    * How to use AJAX to build an event triggered web interface
    * Framebuffer and LIRC interfaces
    * A command line interface
    * An SNMP interface

You can preview the book's table of contents and examine the
underlying technologies at the book's Web site.

Copies of Linux Appliance Design will be given out as door prizes, and
also available for purchase for $30 per copy (half price).

Bob Smith and Bill Pierce have experience in embedded systems,
commercial Linux appliances, and network management systems. Bob has
contributed several articles to The Linux Gazette and frequents
comp.os.linux.embedded. Bill built the bootable CD that comes with
book and did the framebuffer and LIRC chapters.
