Excerpt

Conditions are rough for an aspiring DJ. More and more venues are starting to care if their performers have a license for their music, and the cost of software, hardware, and music is often more than they would care to spend. Thankfully one does not have to sacrifice on quality when replacing two of these with gratis components.

Description

I’ll be covering how to use open source applications to DJ at events, how to use various pieces of hardware with it, and where and how to procure and maintain a library of music released with a creative commons license.

Speaking experience

I've given talks about the Ganeti virtualization project, community engagement, OpenSSH, and OpenPGP at LCA, FOSDEM, the OSU Linux Users Group, the PSU ACM. I've never given this talk before. Here are some links!
