MAIN PRESENTATION

  TOPIC:
    Roku - embedded Linux music and video boxes

  PRESENTED BY:
    David Stern

  TOPIC SUMMARY:
    It's been an exciting year for embedded Linux appliances, and
    Saratoga-based Roku, Inc., started by ReplayTV founder Anthony Wood, is
    one of the brightest rising stars. Roku's lead software engineer David
    Stern will share Roku's Linux story with us. Be sure to bring your
    business card, as Roku will probably have a couple of Roku's signature
    video player boxes to give away in a raffle.


  ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
    David Stern is the engineer principally responsible for the software
    embedded in Roku's product line of networked audio and video players,
    which are all Linux-based. Prior to working at Roku, he served stints
    at Netflix, and before that at consumer electronics firms D&M Holdings
    and Openglobe, Inc. He earned his baccalaureate and masters degrees in
    computer science.

LOCATION:

  Symantec
