Everything Open would like to announce our third keynote speaker: Linux
Australia's very own Hugh Blemings!
## About Hugh Blemings
Hugh has had a long standing association with Free and Open Source
Software, Open Hardware and, in particular, Linux and POWER/PowerPC. His
career has spanned everything from Linux kernel development to
engineering team management, electronics design to technical program
management at the likes of IBM, Canonical, OpenPOWER Foundation and AWS.
As a participant in the open technical commons, he has served in a
voluntary capacity on the Council of Linux Australia in various roles
including President, and is a former member of the Linux Foundation's
Technical Advisory Board. As Executive Director of the OpenPOWER
Foundation he guided the opening of the POWER Instruction Set
Architecture (ISA), a move that ensured choice in the open high
performance microprocessor space.
Of late Hugh returned to his professional passion - people management -
as an Engineering Director leading Grafana Labs' APAC Databases team, a
great bunch of folk working on some equally great software. Outside the
FOSS/technical world Hugh is involved in various musical endeavours in
and around his home in regional Victoria. This latter recently involved
playing the role of a somewhat forgetful theatre cat...
