Biography of the Main Speaker:

Though trained as a physicist, Dr. Ernest Prabhakar has been working with UNIX and Open Source software for over twenty years. He started on BSD 4.2 at Project Athena while getting his B.S. in Physics at MIT, and used a NeXT Cube for his Ph.D. thesis in Experimental Particle Physics at Caltech. After a brief stint in management consulting with the Boston Consulting Group, he came to Apple in 1997 with the vision of combining the power of unix with the simplicity of Macintosh. He was a key player in the first release of Mac OS X Server and Darwin, Appleā€™s Open Source operating system based on BSD technology. He is currently UNIX Product Manager on the Mac OS X team, where he is responsible for marketing Open Source, Open Standards, and Xgrid. Current research interests include Multicore Computing, Syndication Oriented Architectures, and Language-Oriented Programming with Ruby.
