Heike pays a visit to the 2006 UKUUG Linux conference


Article from Issue 71/2006

Blue skies, lots of sun, a great conference venue, and about 200 Linux enthusiasts – that’s the perfect recipe for another successful UKUUG summer meeting at the University of Sussex, Brighton.

Brighton is a lovely seaside resort on the south coast of England. Apart from the pier with the famous funfair, the town offers a large beach, two universities, several nice restaurants, and some cozy pubs. The UKUUG summer meeting 2006 [1] was held at the University of Sussex, on a campus about four miles from the city center. Most of the attendees stayed in the students’ halls on campus, which offered plenty of opportunity to socialize after pub closing time and enjoy some more geek talk on the lawn at night. As with recent years, the conference started with a tutorial day on Thursday: Jos Vos described how to create, modify, and use RPM packages; Mark Leith talked about MySQL optimization, and Richard J. Moore held a workshop on diagnosing kernel-related problems using kdump and SystemTap.
