自介:
From this start and an interest in Ham Radio an early career doing hardware and embedded software development followed back when 8-bit 68HC11's were the latest and greatest.

Hugh has been working on Free software since the mid-90's for fun and as a (still fun!) paid gig since 1999. He was co-author of the gnokii project and developed kernel device drivers for the Keyspan USB-serial adaptors.

He worked at IBM's Linux Technology Centre as a Open Source Hacker in the Canberra based OzLabs team for just shy of eight years doing everything from first line management to Linux kernel porting for embedded PowerPC platforms.

He now works on Ubuntu Linux at Canonical in the kernel team but remains firmly of the view that any day that involves a soldering iron, a 'scope and emacs is a good day.


摘要:
This talk will provide an overview of how Canonical as a company interacts with Ubuntu and the broader Free/Open Source Software Communities.

Hugh will give a quick history of Canonical, some major milestones for Ubuntu and how we seek to grow the Linux and FOSS as a whole. Some observations will be offered on how commercial organisations can usefully interact with the FOSS community as well as some thought on how we as FOSS developers can help educate our peers and managers on FOSS.

The talk will conclude with some details around how Canonical does FOSS development internally, a few traps for new players and a rallying call to go out and change the world!
