The Father of the Free Software Movement

July 27, 2003

Richard Matthew Stallman, the father of the Free Software movement, will be keynoting on the “Free (Bebas) Software Movement and the GNU/Linux operating system”. Richard is the author of the most popular FOSS copyright license (the GNU General Public License, generally referred to as the GPL) and the principle author of many important and widely used contributions including the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), GNU Debugger (GDB), Emacs text editor and many more.

Brian Aker will also be keynoting on Drizzle and MySQL database engines. He is the Director of Architecture at MySQL AB and he kick-started the Drizzle Project (an important code-branch of MySQL 6 which is jointly developed by Google, Canonical & Sun).

We look forward to see you!
