Linux.conf.au, the Australasian Linux Conference to be held in Brisbane next year, has released its schedule today. My friend Marco Ostini, Lunar Numbar Project lead and the paper chair, had the following exciting words to say about the schedule:
“I look on this Schedule as a thing of great beauty. It’s like a glance across today’s global FOSS community. It contains presentations which include innovation, boldness and significant improvements, as well talks that include heart and thoughtfulness. It’s been a lot of hard work, and is not yet complete but gives people a strong guide that lca2011 in Brisbane will be a stunner.”
As I’ve said before, I’d love to attend – thankfully the conference is before University starts, so I just have to splurge on airfares. Some of the interesting talks that I’d like to attend are:
- Building Learning Systems for Educational Research with Drupal
- The latest and coolest with HTML5 video
- The Paradox of Commercially Viable Free Open Source Software
- Open source documentation for fun and profit
- Dropping ACID: eating data in a Web 2.0 Cloud world
- Freeing Production – Using Free Software to control live performances
- Who the bloody hell cares about Debian?
- and… Building a Linux powered coffee roaster!
Linux.conf.au, or LCA 2011, takes place from the 24th – 29th January in Brisbane, Australia.
Will you be going? Let us know!
