The Ohio LinuxFest is thrilled to have Ethan Galstad deliver a keynote address at this year’s event. Ethan is the founder of Nagios, a widely used monitoring application with its roots in Open Source dating back to the late 1990s.

Originally from Wisconsin, Ethan moved to Minnesota to study Computer Science at the University of Minnesota. He held a variety of jobs in desktop support, server administration, and web development before delving into the crazy world of entrepreneurship. He currently serves as President and CEO of Nagios Enterprises, which has grown from a small, bootstrapped startup into a successful company with over 30 employees and thousands of customers worldwide.

We are delighted to have Ethan join us and share his experience living at the intersection of entrepreneurship and Open Source software!
