Ryan McBride to speak at the May CUUG meeting

Contributed by phessler on from the other-calgary-stampede dept.

Anthony Roberts writes in to say "At the May 24 general meeting of the CUUG (Calgary UNIX Users Group), Ryan McBride will speak about OpenBSD's packet filter, PF. A broad overview of PF's features will be presented, with special attention paid to newer and more unique features and how these can be used together effectively for DoS mitigation, high availability, and load balancing.

The other major PF developers will also be in attendance and available to answer questiongs: Bob Beck (Canada) who did spamd, Mike Frantzen (USA) who did the state engine, Daniel Hartmeier (Switzerland) who started it all, Markus Friedl (Germany) who helped develop the grammar, and Henning Brauer (Germany) who integrated PF with ALTQ bandwidth shaping and pushed us to fix some early load problems."

See the CUUG site for details.

    A bit surprised I was the one that submitted this given that the maintainer of this website will be there. :)

      The maintainer didn't know he'll be there, now he does (the schedule matches this year's hackathon, so we were all booked by Theo, I guess :)
