Next Tuesday, March 27, the Open Source Developers at Google Speakers will welcome Jeremy Allison, one of Samba's maintainers and a recent addition to the Google Open Source team. Jeremy will discuss "The Current State of Samba," including why the Common Internet File System protocol is about to become a lot more important to everyone, even those of us who only use Linux.

Doors open at 6:30 PM at our Mountain View campus; guests should plan to sign in at Building 43 reception upon arrival. Refreshments will be served and anyone is most welcome to attend! Jeremy's presentation will also be taped and published on Google Video.

For those of you who were not able to attend Ian Lance Taylor's recent talk "GCC: Current Topics and Future Directions," you can check out the video.
