The Challenges of Enterprise Systems Development with Linux
CUUG, December 13 2005
Richard Huntrods, M.Eng., P.Eng, is a Calgary-born Chemical Engineer and IT Consultant with extensive experience in software development and teaching. He is currently an Academic Coordinator for the School of Computing and Information Science at Athabasca University, Canada's premier distance-education University.
Mr. Huntrods has also continued his consulting practice, developing enterprise web applications in Java. He is the developer of the competency and test tracking HR system for Quicktest International.
Richard's successes and frustrations developing enterprise systems on a variety of UNIX platforms form the context of his December presentation to the Calgary UNIX Users' Group, in which Richard offers nuts-and-bolts details of his difficulties trying to provide Java-powered web applications with Red Hat Linux after a long and happy relationship with Solaris on Sun hardware.
Thank you very much for inviting me to speak to you this evening.
