linux.conf.au

Linux Australia facilitates an annual conference called linux.conf.au

Each year a different team bids for the right to organise linux.conf.au in their city. The conference is widely regarded, and prominent members of the world wide Free and Open Source Software community attend regularly. Further details on the bidding and selection process, and information on how to organise the conference are made available on request to the Linux Australia council.

The 2015 linux.conf.au will be in the New Zealand city of Auckland.

History

It all started in Melbourne back in 1999, with CALU: Conference of Australian Linux Users which was held at Monash University over 3 days in July 1999.

Renamed to linux.conf.au in 2001, it has grown to become one of the world's best technical Linux conferences.

It continues to be run by community volunteers for the community volunteers that have made Linux and Free and Open Source Software the phenomenon it is today.
