Linux File, Storage and Memory Management Summit Updates - James Bottomley, Parallels; Mel Gorman, SUSE; Trond Myklebust, Primary Data; Ted Ts'o, Google; Moderated by Ric Wheeler

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel will bring together some of the leading kernel developers from the file, storage and memory management areas to discuss the hot topics that were handled in the first part of the week. Attendees will get to hear about ongoing work that will move Linux forward in the coming year and talk to the leaders in the community.

This should be a good event for developers, users and architects.

This will give the leading developers immediate feedback on LSF/MM topics from a broader crowd and give the attendees a chance to hear the most up to date news from one of the kernel communities most influential events that will be held earlier in that same week.
