The OpenAFS Guardians are happy to announce the availability of the second prerelease candidate of OpenAFS 1.8.0.
In "You really should know what the Andrew File System is," a recent article for Network World, News Editor Bob Brown concludes that "AFS is indeed worth knowing about as a foundational technology that paved the way for widely used cloud computing techniques and applications."
Karen M. Sandler, executive director of the Software Freedom Conservancy, and Tarus Balog founder and CEO of The OpenNMS Group, will be keynote speakers at Ohio LinuxFest 2017, which will take place September 29-30 in Columbus, Ohio.
In their sixth episode of our “I Am A Mainframer Interview Series,” Jeffrey Frey, of the Open Mainframe Project, interviews Sine Nomine engineer Neale Ferguson. A full recording of the interview as well as a transcript is available on the Open Mainframe Project website.
These presentations are from the April 2016, September 2016, and March 2017 meetings of the Hillgang Group, a Washington DC area mainframe user group.
