The August 2009 meeting of Washington DC Linux user group will take place on
Wednesday, August 19 at 7pm.
Przemek Klosowski will talk about B-Tree File System, (BTRFS, pronounced
ButterEffEss), the new-and-upcoming Linux filesystem that may replace the EXT
family as the default storage for Linux. BTRFS was conceived by Chris Mason
to compete with ZFS, and to address problems with the current generation of
file systems. We'll will discuss and compare features, discuss history and
future developments of BTRFS.
The meeting location is our usual 2025 M street, NW in downtown DC.
There will be signs in front of the building. The location is within 3
nearby Metro stops, both on the red (Dupont, Farragut North) and
blue/orange (Farragut West, Foggy Bottom [a bit of a hike]) lines.
Parking in the area is available for approximately $5; there's even
parking in the building itself. Street parking is free after 6:30pm,
but scarce. There's a parking lot at 23rd St. between M and L that is
not enforced after 7pm (people have successfully parked there for
years---no one we know was ticketed or towed yet, but it could happen).
The meeting dates for 2009 are: Sep 16, Oct 21, Nov 18 and Dec 16.
