Learn what experts think about where we are in DevOps and where we need to go next!
Julian Simpson (@builddoctor) summarizes devops as "a rejection of conflict between two groups who attempt to achieve conflicting goals, and an attempt to be good at whatever pigeonhole you’re in." In this talk, you will hear expert opinions on how far along we are today, where we're going next, and examples of tools and ideas you can employ to make the devops goal a reality.
Linux is like a cult, but agood cult. People should acknowledge that what we do is great AND unusual
If Tux the Penguin offers you some Kool Aid, would you drink it? I drank it, and will continue to do so. My belief system is not my operating system(s) - it's close though, really close. To make my point - I'll say the Open Source Way is my belief system. Join me if you can *take the leap*. Tux and I have some Kool Aid for *You*.

Finding Help in Ubuntu
One of the biggest challenges for new users coming to Ubuntu is figuring out where to find help using and doing common (and not so common!) tasks with their new operating system. This talk will cover the primary official and unofficial help resources available for users and best practices for seeking help for optimal results.
FLOSS Media Center Panel
The FLOSS Media Center Panel will bring together representatives from various related projects such as XBMC, Boxee, LinuxMCE and LinHES to discuss the current state of FLOSS media center software and what future directions that it might be taking. The panelists will also give their opinions on the future of consumer media and what role FLOSS will play.
From OS X to Ubuntu
Mac users are a different breed, and their expectations are high. Fortunately Ubuntu is up to the task. But the road from OS X to Ubuntu is not without some bumps, and this session aims to help those coming from a Mac background make the ride as smooth as possible. We'll start with a brief review of installation options, including running Ubuntu as a VM within your Mac, but we'll quickly get to the more daunting issues Mac users face, like how to choose among a much wider range of hardware options than you've ever known before. Some Mac users like to get as much of a Mac-like experience from their new Ubuntu system as possible, while others prefer to dive into the Ubuntu way head first. We'll cover both, outlining the differences between the two systems and exploring some of the options like Cairo Dock to make your new Ubuntu system feel more familiar as you get started. The command line is considered exotically geeky to most Mac users, but here we'll cover some of the basics of using Terminal to show why it's so very useful and can even be fun. Perhaps the biggest challenge moving from Mac to Ubuntu is finding the sorts of applications you've come to rely on with your Mac, and we'll find some favorite from the Ubuntu Software Center and elsewhere, noting the strengths and weaknesses relative to their Mac counterparts. One of the biggest differences advantages Ubuntu offers over Mac is its customization, and we'll take some time to explore some of the many ways you can personalize your system to work just the way you like, leaving plenty of time for Q&A discussion to help with any specific issues you've had in your own transition to Ubuntu.
Bash is good at running many commands at the same time. What if you expect a few to fail, and you don't know which? This talk presents and demonstrates how to focus on the few commands that didn't work, while the computer is still running all the others.
