LCA2010 will be held from Monday 18 January 2010 to Saturday 23 January 2010 in Wellington, New Zealand. linux.conf.au isn't just a Linux conference. It is a technical conference about Free and Open Source Software, held annually in Australasia since 2001 - covering everything from the Linux Kernel and
Linux Australia's annual main event, linux.conf.au took place in Hobart in January 2009. Once again it proved to be a focal point for the global Free and Open Source Software community to come together. Users and Developers hacking together, sharing new ideas, building on old ones, with a good share of socialising thrown in for spice.
During linux.conf.au 2009 certificates were presented to three members of the Australian Free and Open Source Software community in recognition of their outstanding contribution to Linux Australia and linux.conf.au.
The 2009 Community Recognition Award recipients are
For designing the Linux Australia and Open Source Industry Australia logos and commitment to community development.
The Linux Australia Council Election 2009 is now open and members can nominate for all positions.
For the first time the Australian state of Tasmania will play host to one of the world's largest and foremost software conferences, linux.conf.au, when developers from around the world converge on Hobart to meet, learn and work together to advance their projects.
The Sandy Bay campus of the University of Tasmania, will be host to linux.conf.au in Hobart, Tasmania from January 19 to 24, 2009.
With linux.conf.au 2009 in Hobart rapidly approaching, believe it or not but it's time to look at where 2010 will be. It's a lot of work to put on a linux.conf.au (just ask anybody who's done it) and it's in common agreement that it takes "more than a year", which is why we're talking about 2010 now.
Linux.conf.au has announced the opening of the call for papers on Friday 4th July 2008, giving the open source software community the chance to present at one of the world's premier technical conferences.
