In the third of the Meet the Lindens events, Saffia will be speaking live at 2pm to Oz Linden, VP Second Life Engineering, as part of the SL17B Birthday Celebrations.
You can join the live audience at the Auditorium at the Celebration. The Auditorium is open in three areas – but do get there early – for the last two days, it filled up fast!

Prior to joining Second Life, Oz spent many years developing all sorts of networking code — eventually including contributions to the development of HTTP and from there to open source SIP (voice over IP). Internet Telephony turned into something of a corporate nightmare, so he looked around for something more fun. A friend who was working at the Lab recruited Oz to help with the open source program. Since he had already played a little with Second Life, he thought that it certainly met the “fun” criteria but he had no idea just how much fun. Nine years later, Oz is responsible for Second Life Engineering and having the time of his life. He is proud to be working on a product that means so much to so many people.
Saffia will be talking to him about various technical issues in Second Life, especially about the all-important migration to the Cloud! We’ll also be talking about some problems residents have raised, and about third party viewers, such as Firestorm.
