Now that AFS has become available through an open source license, it is available to sites and IT groups of all sizes. Although the use of AFS is simple, setting up your own AFS servers can be a rather daunting task.

Topics include:

The day will be four 90 minute sessions with breaks in the morning and afternoon, plus a mid-day break for lunch.
