Counting down to Pengicon

| It's only a few more days until Penguicon,

| April 30 to May 2 at the Marriott in Troy, 
| MI.


On bootstrapping a community-run FOSS event

,----[ Quote ]
| On Saturday, April 10th, I was in Austin 
| Texas for the inaugural Texas Linux Fest 
| (TXLF), a community-run FLOSS conference. 
| The idea to stage the show arose last 
| August during OSCON, picked up steam in the 
| fall, and in the end a little under 400 
| people turned out â including speakers and 
| volunteers â which most considered a 
| successful number for a first year event.

| users of open source platforms will 
| participate in the event.
| FLISOL is the largest advocacy event of 
| free software in Latin America. Itâs held 
| since 2005 and since 2008 it adopted the 
| fourth Saturday of April each year. Its 
| main objective is to promote the use of 
| free software, showing to the general 
| public its philosophy, scope, progress and 
| development.


Freedom movement

,----[ Quote ]
| With over 1,200 students participating, the
| conference exhibited the language of free
| software while not losing sight of the purely
| technical aspects of GNU/Linux. Coding
| sessions, handled by experts in GNU/Linux-
| based programming, exposed students to the
| free software culture that thrives in the
| Linux User Groups â popularly called Lugs,
| these form the basic units of the free
| software movement â in academic institutions
| and among software professionals across the
| country.
