For those who want to know what’s happening close to the hardware, we
have presentations covering upcoming features of the Linux kernel, new
approaches in networking, and stories from people who’ve been making
and breaking the latest new and unusual hardware.

If you’re a developer, we’ll be covering the latest developments in
Open Source browsers, new tools for targeting mobile platforms, war
stories from developers working with emerging programming languages,
and how design and usability shapes the applications we develop.

Sysadmins and devops can look forward to talks about the future of
tools that make systems run better, including talks on automated
builds, configuration management, new tools for working with
containers, and package management.

We also have a strong line-up of talks looking into community, policy,
and business issues in Open Source. We’ll look at how Open Source is
playing a more important role in Government, how businesses can better
participate in Open Source, and how Open Source can provide better
communities for users and developers.

And of course, linux.conf.au will feature its usual fare of people
doing cool stuff with Open Source Software and Hardware: from cars, to
planes, and even into space.

Our tutorials will provide you with practical experience in a diverse
range of topics in Free and Open Source Software. This year we’re
featuring tutorials on devops with SaltStack, home automation, the
Rust programming language, .NET on Linux, Linux containers, and GPL
