Bytemark sponsor FLOSS UK, giving presentation on BigV

If you’re a follower of the Bytemark blog you might have spotted that I’m moving the BigV diary posts over here, and some old posts might have shown up as new. Sorry!

What I came here to say though: Bytemark are sponsoring the FLOSS UK conference in Edinburgh next month, (20-22nd March), and I’m proud to be presenting a talk on the Design and Implementation of BigV, alongside lots of other interesting speakers. If you saw my talk in Bournemouth in 2004, this is the sequel you’ll no doubt have been waiting for. I’ll talk through some of BigV’s implementation, especially the bits that are easy to copy in your own setups. If you didn’t know, FLOSS UK is the new name for the UK UNIX User Group, and they always put on an interesting 2 days of cross-disciplinary technical talks. I’m hoping my talk will measure up.

There’s a new BigV release out now – documentation and some more news on the beta test should follow later tonight.
