With Linux Conference Australia 2011 fast approaching, it’s worth mentioning that the very active Australian Ubuntu LoCo Team are planning to have an Ubuntu showcase stall throughout the open day, on Saturday.
LCA2011 runs from Monday to Friday and to get in attendees need to register for the sessions, keynotes and miniconfs – just like any other conference.
But at the end of the week on Saturday there is an open day organized for the public to have a look around and check out some of the organizations and projects, for free.
One such organization planning on having a stall at the open day is the Australian Ubuntu LoCo Team – they’ve been very active over the years and are a well organized bunch, their members helping with everything from regional Ubuntu Membership Boards to being actively involved in projects like Lunar Numbat and OLPC.

I was thinking if we had enough people interested in helping out we should hold a stall at the open day being held on Saturday 29th January 2011. It would be good to get a presence there as the leading Linux conference in Australia.
The details of the Open Day – taken from the LCA 2011 website are:
- When – 29th January 2011 from 1000 until 1600
- Where – The Edge, State Library Queensland, South Brisbane - The Edge Website.
This event has now been registered as a loco event. For details and registration please see http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/team/587/detail/ which will take you to a place to registered attendance at the day. Please read below for details on helping out on the day in a volunteer capacity.
So if you’re around Brisbane, or attending LCA2011, pop along to the State Library on Saturday and have a chat to the Aussie LoCo Team – I’m sure they’d appreciate it. (I’ll probably be there at some point too.)
