Keynote Speaker and Special Guest
Our Keynote Speaker is Karl Lehenbauer. Karl has been active with Tcl since the early days and has continued using Tcl and pushing Tcl to be a more useful tool. His need for better systems administration tools led to TclX, with many innovations that later got merged into the Tcl core. His recent work with FlightAware has led to improvements in the Tcl Web tools.
Our second special guest is John Ousterhout. John is the man responsible for all of this, starting with his need for a configuration tool in 1987, leading to his paper at Usenix in 1990, and then Tcl's years with UC Berkeley, Sun, Scriptics and Ajuba and finally forming the Tcl Core Team.
We are very pleased to have two of the folks who helped create the Tcl we know today at our 20'th conference.
