Biographie de Jon 'maddog' Hall
Jon "maddog" Hall is the Executive Director of Linux International, a vendor organization dedicated to promoting the use of the Linux Operating System. He has been in the computer industry for over a quarter century (somehow that sounds more impressive than just "25 years"), the past 18 years of which have been spent using, programming, and admiring the UNIX Operating System. Currently, Jon works for Compaq Computer Corporation, where he is helping to shape Compaq's strategy with respect to Linux. Previously, Jon was the Department Head of Computer Science at Hartford State Technical College, where his students lovingly (he hopes) gave him the nickname "maddog" as he tried to teach them operating system design, compiler theory, and how to live an honorable life.
