GlusterFS is a general purpose distributed file system for scalable storage. Over the last couple of months Dave has been testing GlusterFS as an alternative to NFS for replicating files across multiple web servers. Now it is all working properly, Dave will give an explanation of what GlusterFS is, how he uses it, the issues he had while deploying it and why he stuck with it.
Dave Hall is an IT Consultant, webapp coder, geek, slacker, father of 2, and self confessed fat opinionated bastard.
Humanities computing, Drupal and What I did on my holidays
Abstract: This presentation will introduce the opportunities that free software and the web present for research, publication and collaboration in the humanities, particularly in the area of public history. I will discuss some of the technical and social challenges I have faced on the Founders and Survivors project, and will demonstrate how I am using Drupal to implement the data collection and presentation tasks for this project.
This is a mashup of two presentations I gave at LCA and DrupalSouth in Wellington in January, now with added Drupal goodness thanks to the feedback I received.
Claudine Chionh can get equally excited by original manuscripts and by the latest developments in Drupal 7. She is a developer on the Founders and Survivors project, which will follow the lives of Australian families from the convict transportation period to the First World War. She is especially interested in the use of web technologies to enable collaboration between academics and the wider community, and in connecting with others working in humanities computing in Australia.
