Wikia co-founder Angela Beesely has been selected as a keynote speaker at the upcoming Linux.conf.au 2009 National Linux Conference.
Internationally renowned author Tom Limoncelli and Sun's Chief Open Source Officer, Simon Phipps, will also be delivering keynote addresses at the conference.
Next year's conference will be held at the University of Tasmania from January 19-24.
Linux.conf.au is run by community volunteers, and has been held annually since 1999. For the first two years the event was known as the Conference of Australian Linux users, but was renamed for the 2001 event.
