The AFS Workshop, co-located with the 2004 USENIX Annual Technical Conference, brings together administrators and programmers to discuss the development and progress of AFS software, which is growing rapidly both in use and usability. Previous AFS Workshops have covered such topics as methods of authentication, backups, client stability and configuration, replacing ubik, and future work on OpenAFS and Arla. As some of the key players in both OpenAFS and Arla attend the Workshops, these discussions can and do affect the course of development.

Workshop Coordinators

Garry Zacheiss works with AFS at MIT as a member of the Athena Server Operations team. He also works with the OpenAFS project as a Gatekeeper. His spare time is spent living in sin with a quasi-sentient omnipotent relational database.

Esther Filderman has been working with AFS since its infancy at CMU, before it was called AFS. She is currently Senior Systems Mangler and AFS administrator for the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

Derrick Brashear is a systems programmer with the Computing Services division of Carnegie Mellon University and is on the OpenAFS Council of Elders, the guiding body for OpenAFS development. He claims to have his fingers in too many pies.
