The Marriott Atlanta Northwest is holding a block or rooms for the Atlanta Linux Fest.
*$69.00 single/double $79.00 triple and $89.00 quad
*rate does not include taxes
(translation single/double/triple/quad refers to number beds in hotel speak)
There is a limited number of rooms at this rate and this rate will only be held until the 18th of August so please make your reservations soon. After the 18th they will release the rooms and the rate goes back up to the seasonal rate.
The hotel will also provide a shuttle from the hotel to the IBM Facility and back. The times for the shuttle will be given to you upon check-in.
If you click on the Marriott Icon this should take you to the reservations page for the Atlanta Linux Fest. For Reservations click here.
Or if you prefer you can always call 1-800-228-9290 or 1-770-952-7900 and let them know you are with you are staying there for the Atlanta Linux Fest. Just let them know the following:
* Group Name: Atlanta Linux Fest
* Group Code: alfalfa
(if you use the link above the group information should automatically show up)
* Please make your reservations under the Atlanta Linux Fest group block as this will help us plan for future events and will keep the rate low for next year as rates are determined by how many room nights we can bring into the hotel.
I hope that makes sense to everyone. This information should be available on the Atlanta Linux Fest Site soon.
Mini Ubuntu Conference
Also, another added feature to the Atlanta Linux fest is that there will be a mini- Ubucon (ubuntu conference) talking place during the fest. So Ubuntu LoCo teams, ubuntu users and enthusiasts this is for you. We are planning on having some great sessions surrounding all things ubuntu. If you would like to see specific topics for the Ubucon please add to the BoF sessions or shoot me an email: akgraner [at] ubuntu [dot] com
Go Ubuntu LoCo Teams!!!
