Linux.conf.au to descend on Brisbane

For all of you wishing to rub shoulders with the demigods of the Linux community, the third national Linux conference, known as Linux.conf.au, is being held at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, next month.

Raymond Smith, Linux.conf.au organiser, says it will be a fairly intimate affair, covering the latest developments in all things Linux.

"We organised the conference because there aren't many opportunities for Australian hackers to get together", Smith said. "The conference is about finding out where the Australian Linux community is at, and to find out what everyone is working on," he said.

"We wanted an event which attracts local content and international interest as well as appeal to everyone from students through to serious hackers and Linux professionals. Some of these professionals will come from IBM which will be sending up a number of its developers," Smith said.

The conference features a host of Linux gurus, including international speaker Rasmus Lerdorf, who will present a complete tutorial on PHP. Local talent sees, David Findlay discussing his Microsoft Flight simulator clone, Carsten "The Rasterman" Haitzler, on Scalable Display Technology, and Andrew Tridgell on SAMBA.

Smith said the conference should attract around 200 to 250 attendees.

Linux.conf.au will be held from February 6 to 9. However, if the three day event doesn't seem enough to keep you entertained, a Debian mini-conference is being held just before Linux.conf.au on February 4 and 5 at the same venue.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
