*"Building Google's Chromium OS" Meeting Description*
At the December 16th meeting you'll get a comprehensive technical overview
of Google's early release of Chromium OS - a new Linux-powered open source
operating system. The presentations will introduce you to the overall
architecture as well as the pointers you'll need to build it for yourself.
We're fortunate to have two expert Googlers on-hand - Ryan Cairns and Kan
Liu - to lead you on a high-powered technical tour of the Chrome OS
landscape. Brian DeLacey will recap his early experiences working with
The meeting will dive into technical and user-friendly aspects of Chromium
OS. We will build the software from source as the meeting progresses. We'll
step through and discuss the various scripts and procedures that make up the
build process. We'll also talk about some of the earliest hardware used to
test Chromium OS.
When Google ships Chrome OS in 2010, what features will you be looking for?
What hardware do you want to see this on? How will this new OS be used when
it comes to market next year? Bring your questions, thoughts, and open
source offerings to help! If you'd like to try out Chromium OS for yourself,
bring along a 4 GB thumb drive to the meeting. We'll have things set up so
you can easily get a fresh and free copy.
We have a few more surprises in store for the meeting - including a door
prize raffle from the good folks at O'Reilly Media. We'll also have some
snacks and drinks.
