Southeast Linux Fest

Part 45 The Ubuntu Chronicles: Amber's Adventures in the Community

Southeast Linux Fest will be the first Linux fest I have ever been too. :-) I am excited to see what I have been missing all these years. The Southeast Linux Fest will be held in SC at Clemson University on Saturday, June 13, 2009.

There is a great line up of speakers and exhibitors. I am a little bias because my husband, Pete Graner will be speaking about the Ubuntu Kernel. (That is so above my head but I think what the kernel team does is cool.) Also the Ubuntu Podcast crew will be there - woo hoo! So will members of NC, SC, GA, and FL Loco's working Ubuntu South East LoCo teams' table. How cool is it to meet more community people! Not just the Ubuntu community but other communities as well. :-D How cool is that?!

There is an awesome line up that starts with Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier from openSUSE giving the morning keytnote and concludes with Paul Frields of Fedora addressing the group in the evening keynote. Also at the conference will be speakers from Digium, Sun Microsystems, Red Hat, Google, The KDE project, The Linux Gaming Industry, Slackware, Qimo, and more. There is a complete list and links to all the speaker profiles and links to each company and project listed on the Southeast Linux Fest site.

Hope you find something on the agenda that interests you and you can make it there. So mark your calendars and head to SC on June 13th. See ya there. :-)

More later! :-)
