PostPosted: Tue 13 Sep 2011, 01:27    Post subject:  Puppy and the linux.conf.au for 2012!  

Any considerations that we as a group of Puppy Linux users should attend?
At least run a Puppy Table?
Maybe even run a Puppy Miniconf and have a Workshop or two?

It will be at Ballarat in Victoria between the 16th and 20th of January 2012.

Draft Schedule and contacts listed in the message below from the convenor.



Hi Everyone,

Adding to the anticipation for January 2012's linux.conf.au, the organising team are thrilled to announce that the draft schedule for the event is now available at http://linux.conf.au/programme/schedule.
The line up is stellar - featuring industry luminaries such as Rusty Russell, Andrew Tridgell and Bdale Garbee.

The Papers Committee worked incredibly hard to sift through the high quality submissions and select an array of presentations which are engaging and entertaining while delivering in-depth info across a variety of topics. There's something for everyone in this schedule, from those interested in kernel development, open hardware, community or packaging to the increasingly popular FOSS music and multimedia. It's going to be amazing!

Both the Papers Committee and Organising Team were very enthusiastic about the high rate of talks accepted from female speakers - without any acceptance bias being needed in the selection process. Nearly a quarter of accepted talks will be given by female presenters - an encouraging sign of progress in the traditionally male-oriented conference.

Much credit here is due to the important role played by the Haecksen/LinuxChix miniconf of previous years and which is again running in 2012. This has provided a platform for female speakers to gain the experience and confidence needed to go on to submit and deliver great talks at linux.conf.au" noted Josh.

The schedule announcement follows the hotly-anticipated Miniconf announcements - including Sysadmin,Browser, Haecksen/LinuxChix and Music and Multimedia - with more to come.

I doubt if those clowns and losers have ever heard of Barry
and Puppy.

Full of themselves tossers...and I'm trying to be charitable here.

" They recently ran a Linux Conference in Sydney on January
15th - 20th, 2007 and didn't even give him an invitation, let alone
a mention. (BarryK I didn't even know about it! "



Save your money.
Go to Sovereign Hill instead to see the history.
