What is linux.conf.au?

linux.conf.au is one of the foremost open source conferences in the world, and is considered the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere. Every year open source geeks from across the globe gather to meet their fellow technologists, share the latest ideas and innovations, and spend a week collaborating on free, open source software projects.

The conference is well known for the speakers and delegates depth of talent, and its focus on technical linux content.

Who is it for?

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. It's an opportunity to meet and talk with like-minded people and learn about new projects you can contribute to.

For seasoned attendees, linux.conf.au is an opportunity to catch up with old friends, see what new friends are currently working on and see first-hand what the future of free and open source software will be.

Where will it be held?

For the first time, linux.conf.au will be held in Auckland, New Zealand in the University of Auckland's modern Owen G Glenn Building.
