* Jason King — Using django to make web apps
 
 
Django is a web framework written in python, that makes it quite pleasant to make reasonably complicated sites involving different types of information.  I will be showing you how to make a simple site using django's template language, and demonstrate django's database extraction capabilities.  A basic level of python is assumed.
 
 
Jason King is a former President of Linux Users Victoria, and has had various progamming jobs over the years, ranging from delphi, to php and python.

* Dave Hall - GlusterFS
 
 
Title: GlusterFS
 
 
Abstract: GlusterFS is a general purpose distributed file system for scalable storage.  Over the last couple of months Dave has been testing GlusterFS as an alternative to NFS for replicating files across multiple web servers.  Now it is all working properly, Dave will give an explanation of what GlusterFS is, how he uses it, the issues he had while deploying it and why he stuck with it.

* Claudine Chionh
 
 
Title: Humanities computing, Drupal and What I did on my holidays
 
 
Abstract: This presentation will introduce the opportunities that free software and the web present for research, publication and collaboration in the humanities, particularly in the area of public history. I will discuss some of the technical and social challenges I have faced on the Founders and Survivors project, and will demonstrate how I am using Drupal to implement the data collection and presentation tasks for this project.
 
 
This is a mashup of two presentations I gave at LCA and DrupalSouth in Wellington in January, now with added Drupal goodness thanks to the feedback I received.
 
  
Bio: Claudine Chionh can get equally excited by original manuscripts and by the latest developments in Drupal 7. She is a developer on the Founders and Survivors project <http://www.foundersandsurvivors.org>, which will follow the lives of Australian families from the convict transportation period to the First World War. She is especially interested in the use of web technologies to enable collaboration between academics and the wider community, and in connecting with others working in humanities computing in Australia.

* Rusty Russell - Switching To Userspace: A Kernel Hacker Leaves The Nest
 
  
''Abstract:'' Rusty Russell is best known for his kernel work, particularly netfilter and modules.  With changing life priorities, he decided to try his hand at userspace coding and a new project (SAMBA) to stretch his brain into fresh shapes.  After ten years in the kernel, it's a little daunting to enter an established project as the new kid, but along the way we'll see how he has managed to carve out a niche and have a great time coding inside a huge and complex codebase.

''Bio:'' Rusty Russell has been a full-time professional Free Software programmer since 1997.  He's probably best known for his work with iptables/netfilter last decade, but his coding work has ranged from early g++ contributions to the founding the embryonic Comprehensive C Archive Network.  He also founded what became the linux.conf.au conference series, as well as advocating for patent and copyright reform during the US-Australia Free Trade Agreement ratification.  He works for IBM in Canberra, lives in Adelaide, and has a delightful 18 month old daughter Arabella.

Abstract: High Availability can be a curiously nebulous term, and most people probably don't care about it until they can't access their online banking service, or their plane crashes.

"Above the line" voting means your favourite political party can choose where preferences will be distributed, and you may not know (or like) their decisions. auprefs is an open source web application to visualise preference distribution in Australian elections, to better inform voters where their vote might go. Paul will talk about why he did it, and how it is implemented, including force-directed graphs and the amazing d3 Javascript graphing library.

Paul Foxworthy is an open source developer whose day job is working on Australianising and customising the Apache OFBiz ERP system. He is a committer to the OFBiz project and also currently serves as a director of Open Source Industry Australia. He is very pleased to have finally done something just possibly cool enough to give a LUV talk.
