Learn about Open Source at LCA 2010 Open Day

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 15-Jan-2010 13:02

On Saturday 23rd January the LCA 2010 will open its doors to the public for LCA 2010 Open Day. Part of the week of linux.conf.au, which is happening 18-23 January 2010 (and despite the name this year is based in Wellington, New Zealand), the Open Day will be an opportunity for the general public to learn about free and open source software in a very hands on fashion.
There will be 30+ exhibitors from business, education and community groups demoing some of the software they have written, along with a number of other activities including:
- Activities for kids with the One Laptop per Child laptops in the Little Blu Kids Area
- Demonstrations from the Wellington makerspace group
- 2 New Zealand Electric Cars run with open source software
- 3 sessions about free and open source software
        "Open Source for Newbies" - Cat Allman & Leslie Hawthorn (Google Open Source Office)
        "50 ways to love your project" - Josh Berkus & Selena Deckelmann
        "Geek my car" - Jon Oxer
- And more
Check the PDF poster for this event for more information.
Registration for linux.conf.au is still continuing and the organisers expect 600 delegates for the main conference alone (with a split of 40% New Zealand, 40% Australia, and 20% from the Rest of the World).
