linux.conf.au will be held in Brisbane, Australia from Monday, 24th January to Saturday, 29th January.
linux.conf.au is about free and open source software, especially Linux. It is a technical conference which attracts some of the brightest minds in the world and it is run by the community, for the community.
If you are new to free and open source software, attending linux.conf.au is a great way to get a head start. You’ll be able to meet and talk with like-minded people and learn about the projects you can contribute to.
There will be sessions for the more technical amongst us as well as sessions for the non-technical but end users in the community.
This is the second time LCA has been held in Brisbane, with the first conference being hosted in Brisbane in 2002. 2011 will be a significant year for the open source community with many open source applications now considered mature and many more in development.
Of greater significance to the many Linux users out there, 2011 will also mark the 20th anniversary of the Linux kernel originally written by Linus Torvalds in 1991.
When: Monday, 24 January 2011 at 09:00 – Saturday, 29 January 2011 at 18:00
