This year's linux.conf.au ‚Äî which will, despite the name, be held in Wellington, New Zealand ‚Äî is fast approaching. For those waiting to get in on the action up front, the time to act is now, because the early bird will soon have flown the coop.
The annual linux.conf.au conference is the grandest Linux gathering of the Australasian year, and one of the crown jewels of Linux conventions worldwide. The schedule for this year's event includes a wide representation of the Open Source community, as always, including keynotes by Jonathan Corbet, Andrew Tridgell, Matthew Garrett, and Linux Journal's own Glyn Moody. The miniconf schedule ‚Äî comprising the conference's first two days ‚Äî boasts sessions on the business of Open Source, cloud computing, Arduino, system administration, a distro summit, and Wave development, among others.
