You know how it goes.
You spend a few days immersed in talks about clusters and networking, laptops and video drivers, surrounded by the hackers who inspired you to start coding in the first place, getting three hours sleep per night and living on pizza and caffeine. You return home only to spend the next few weeks in a nocturnal daze of debugging symbols as you flitter between purging your email backlog and coding up that long, inspired list of new features you jotted down on the return journey.
A few weeks later, over breakfast, you suddenly realise what the heck Van Jacobson was going on about in his talk...
linux.conf.au is one of the world's best Open Source and Free Software developer community conferences! A purely volunteer effort, it is hosted in a different Australasian city each year, and attracts some of the best minds in the world of Open Source and Free Software. Make sure you don't miss the chance to hang out and learn with the best.
The conference includes a range of community-driven miniconfs, two days of planned talks, a tutorials day and many excellent social events to bring the community together. It also includes Open Day, a community outreach event for high school students, young people, our families and friends to come along and find out about our world through some of the coolest technology available.
linux.conf.au 2007 will be held at the Kensington campus of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Sydney is a beautiful place to visit, and we look forward to showing our speakers and attendees some of the sights. We have an excellent partners programme that caters to kids and partners of all ages.
