Speakers Announcement and Early Bird Registration Reminder

The list of accepted talks for Linux Plumbers Conf is now available.

Speakers and topics include “The Btrfs Filesystem: Design, Status and Goals” by Chris Mason, “From Naught to Sixty in 5 Seconds (Making Boot Fast)” by Arjan van de Ven and Auke Kok, and “Graphics Drivers in the Kernel: 20 years late” by Dave Airlie and Jesse Barnes. Talks will be followed by round-table discussion about the direction of future development in the project. This is an excellent opportunity for vendors, distributions, hardware manufacturers, and Linux developers to influence the technical direction of these subsystems. See the LPC speakers page for a complete list of topics.
