2014 Linux Symposium, July 14-16

We would like to invite you to the 15th Linux Symposium taking place from May 7-9th, 2014. The original dates in November 2013 were determined to be too close to several other events and general consensus was that we would move the event to the spring.

Since 1999 the Linux Symposium has always tried to provide a comfortable collaboration environment for technical people working on all aspects of the Linux Project. We have done our best to provide a vendor neutral academic-style conference where developers, administrators, and users all feel at ease and are able to work together.

The goal of the Linux Symposium is to bring together Linux developers, enthusiasts, and systems administrators to improving communication, strengthen the personal connections within the Linux Community and to promote the open and free dissemination of new ideas.

Annually our attendees represent over 30 countries and the Symposium strives to be one of best internationally represented Linux events with content coming from all corners of the vast and incredibly diverse Linux and Open Source Software community.

Our Past Keynote Speakers

Our past keynote speakers have included many core members of the Linux development community including; Alan Cox, David S.

The thing to think about with Bitcoin tech: it's not just Bitcoin-the-currency, but really it is a catalyst for new cryptographically secure, openly audited systems. Imagine if the government published hash-secured, digitally signed accounting ledgers that the entire country could audit.

Lots of related, non-currency projects are being spurred by Bitcoin's emergence, like BitMessage
