Speaker: Jamie Cameron
Webmin is an open-source web-based system administration interface for
Linux systems. It lets you perform tasks like managing BIND, Apache,
Sendmail, Unix users and so on without having to manually edit
configuration files in the /etc directory, all through a web browser
running locally or connecting to the Linux box over the network. Jamie
will give an introduction to Webmin and a demo of its capabilities,
talking about how it can be useful for managing a home system or small
network server, and then covering some of the work he has been doing
with OpenCountry to add a Bacula backup module.
Jamie was born in Australia but is now working for Google in
California. He started work on Webmin in 1997 while working in
Singapore, as a way to avoid having people pester him for trivial DNS
updates, and has been developing it ever since. He is married with 2
children, and currently lives in Santa Clara.
