"The State of" Lightning talks, moderated by Josh Berkus, is always a great highlight.
OSCon 2008's speakers and projects included:
- Alan Kasindorf: Memcached
- Glynn Foster: OpenSolaris
- OSI: Danese Cooper
- MySQL: Monty Widenius
- PostgreSQL: Bruce Momjian
- GNOME: Dave Neary
- Gentoo: Donnie Berkholz
- OpenOffice.org: Louis Suarez-Potts
- Jabber: Peter Saint-Andre
- Mozdev: Brian King
- OpenID: Scott Kveton
- Open Scrum: James Dixon
- Talking Book Project: Cliff Schmidt
Due to an equipment malfunction, I was able to get all the way through the Open Office lightning talk, but did not get the Gnome lightning talk. Please feel free to let me know about any others that did not make the video cut (or ones that were added!).
The "zinger" lightning talk was Brian Aker speaking about Drizzle, and has its own separate post.
