May 27, 2009

The SouthEast Linuxfest has been confirmed for June 13, this time at Clemson University. It will begin at 9 AM sharp, and will run until 6 PM.

As usual, the Linuxfest will be followed with a party for all its members.

A partial list of speakers will include:

  • Chris Dibona, current open source evangelist at Google
  • Mark Spencer, currently CTO of Digium
  • Russell Bryant, "Asterisk" stable package maintainer
  • Wendy Seltzer, former EFF staff attorney
  • Joe Brockmeier, openSUSE community manager at Novell
  • Greg DeKoenigsberg, Red Hat architect & Fedora project leader
  • Ian Geiser, KDE project
  • Pete Graner, Ubuntu kernel team leader at Canonical
  • Ryan Gordon, Linux gaming industry leader
  • Brian Leonard of Sun Microsystems, OpenSolaris developer
  • Richard Weait of OpenStreetMap
  • Paul Frields, Fedora project leader
  • Clint Savage, Fedora project contributor
  • Richard Hipp of SQLite
  • Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network
  • Some say that you no longer have to travel to Ohio to attend The Linux Foundation Annual Conference, or to Los Angeles for S-CaLE to get good quality FOSS (Free Open Source Software) entertainment, as it's now being brought back to the southeast.

    Additionally, and unlike most other Linux conferences, this one is even free!

    There's also an exhibit hall with a good mix of community projects and open source companies.

    If you're on the east coast, particularly southern or central, or if you just want to witness the return of Linux in the GNU/South, donít miss the SouthEast LinuxFest.

    The SouthEast LinuxFest is a community event for anyone who wants to learn more about Linux and Free & Open Source software. It is part educational conference, part social gathering...

    Like Linux itself, it's shared with other attendees of the Linux community and of all skill levels to effectively communicate ideas, tips, short cuts and to benefit all who use Linux.
