About linux.conf.au

linux.conf.au (lca) is a conference about Open Source Software, including
Linux. It brings together the world's community of Linux and open source
enthusiasts who make considerable contributions to open source software.

2012 marks a significant milestone for LCA as it will be the first time the
conference has been held in an Australian regional city. The 2012 Ballarat
organising committee is excited to be hosting the open source community and
would love for you to join us in January.

Kindest Regards,

Sae Ra
