Heading Out To linux.conf.au

by | Fri 29 Jan 2016

On Saturday I will be flying out to linux.conf.au taking place in Geelong. Because it is outrageously far away from where I live, I will arrive on Monday morning. 馃檪

I am excited to be joining the conference. The last time I made the trip was sadly way back in 2007 and I had an absolutely tremendous time. Wonderful people, great topics, and well worth the trip. Typically I have struggled to get out with my schedule, but I am delighted to be joining this year.

I will also be delivering one of the keynotes this year. My keynote will be on Thu 4th Feb 2016 at 9am. I will be delving into how we are at potentially the most exciting time ever for building strong, collaborative communities, and sharing some perspectives on how we empower a new generation of open source contributors.

So, I hope to see many of you there. If you want to get together for a meeting, don’t hesitate in getting in touch. You can contact me at [email protected] for GitHub related discussions, or [email protected] for everything else. See you there!
