        HTML 5 for Web App Developers

                HTML5 is the perhaps the biggest change in HTML since we
                were first introduced to it back in the early 90's.

                The lament is that HTML was frozen
                in some designed-by-committee" state since the 90's.

                HTML5 finally gives us a standardized way to store data
                locally in the user's machine.  We're not talking about
                little cookies here; HTML5 offers your web application
                5MB of local storage.  HTML5 also introduces a
                significant caching mechanism to allow offline
                applications. 

                And there's still more.  An element offering a standard
                mechanism for rendering video.  (No more Flash problems!)

                VIM Workshop 
                                                 by  Bill Odum.

                             Files and Buffers and Windows and Tabs (and More!)

                                  Vim provides a wealth of features for 
                             editing several files simultaneously, arranging 
                             them into workspaces, and then navigating among 
                             them.  Unfortunately, it's not always obvious 
                             how to use these features, or how they all fit 
                             together. If you've ever wondered why Vim won't 
                             let you edit one file before saving another, 
                             why :q! doesn't always let you quit, or why Vim's 
                             tab pages seem so weird, then this workshop will 
                             clear up the confusion.



                                                 Our main event will be:
                mdadm                
                                                 by Jeff Muse

                                 This presentation covers mdadm, the Linux  
                            software raid management utility.

                                 After a brief look at RAID concepts, 
                            we'll have an explanation of what mdadm is capable 
                            of doing and demonstrations of it in action. 

                                 Minimize unplanned downtime due to disk failure
                            on your Linux systems by implementing mdadm, Linux 
                            software RAID.  (If you're not sure what RAID is,
                            don't worry, we'll talk about that first.)  
                            mdadm supports most common RAID levels, costs less 
                            than a hardware RAID controller, and can have 
                            better performance.

                                 Don't have a system with massive numbers of 
                            disks to experiment with?  We'll show you how to 
                            simulate one using virtual machines!
