Not going to ApacheCon

Last week I got notified about some changes to the planned schedule that unfortunately put my talk at a time I would have a hard time making. So rather than stressing around trying to make ends meet in what was already to be a hit'n'run trip, my talk is off the schedule and I won't be going.
Instead I'll try to rewrite my talk into some blog entries as time permits.

ApacheCon US also looks very unlikely as I'm not very keen on going to New Orleans.

No ApacheCon EU for me

Both my proposals (httpd on opensolaris and advanced httpd troubleshooting) were rejected, so I'm not speaking this time. I'm not too disappointed as this years edition is smaller than usual. I suppose I could also have chosen more popular proposals, but I chose to submit talks I'd have fun preparing.
Rumor also has it that the hackathon will be cut in half to only one day, so I'm not entirely sure I can justify going unless I find an employer before then to pay part of the bill.

ApacheCon 2006US

Right now ApacheCon is going full speed in Austin.
I'm not anywhere near Austin and will be missing ApacheCon for the first time since I started going in 2001. I did have a talk scheduled that I was really looking forward to (especially since it has been rejected the last two times I proposed it), but I "ran out of time and energy" and decided that it would be better to cancel.
I wish all the best to those lucky bastards who get to be there and promise to turn up at the next ApacheCon and hand over the beers I owe various people (anyone who thinks to collect interest on owed beer better let me know now so that I can get it opened and set aside in a glass ;).

ApacheCon 2006 US - httpd on OpenSolaris.

Much to my surprise, I've had my proposed talk accepted for ApacheCon 2006/US.
This time I'll be speaking about running httpd on OpenSolaris. I'm still a bit unsure about the final content, but I hope to cover:

  • SMF for httpd
  • Least Privileges
  • "zoning httpd"
  • dtracing httpd
  • kssl

The list is bound to evolve as I find the time to actually work on these things.
