Novell announced in March that those who use NetWare will see a new offering
that combines NetWare with SUSE Linux, and that HP and Novell would work
together to sell notebook and desktop PCs loaded with Linux. At the April
12, 2004 meeting of the North Carolina System Administrators, Dean Edwards
of Novell will join us to discuss Novell's Linux history, what Linux
solutions Novell has today, and to review Novell's Linux roadmap.
About the speaker:
Dean Edwards began his career in IT while a student at Northwestern
University in 1987. He was a work-study student supporting the computer
labs, which included NetWare starting in 1988. His first "real" job was at
Boston Consulting Group in 1990 where he was the "computer guy" for the
Chicago office, which grew from 30 to 90 people in 4 years. He supported
Macintosh and PCs with a NetWare environment. Edwards moved from Chicago to
Springfield, IL, and had jobs as networking/NetWare SysAdmin at Franklin
Life Insurance (later bought by AIG), St. John's Hospital, and moonlighted
as a computer instructor at a community college. Beginning in 1996, Edwards
started a part-time consulting practice, Rent-A-Nerd-Technologies, which
focused on home users and small businesses. Edwards was on verge of
becoming full time when hired by Novell in 1998. He was a consultant until
2001, then Systems Engineer until 2003, and is now a Networking and Systems
Management Category Specialist.
