OggCamp is a 2 day event which celebrates Free Software and Free Culture by bringing together top developers, artists, hackers and community heroes to share ideas, collaborate, educate and hopefully entertain. It began back in 2009 by taking up the mantle from the successful LugRadio Live annual bash. Since then it’s grown to become by far the biggest and best Linux & Open Source event in the UK. It’s a community gathering with a friendly feel and we’re not just another bland corporate IT event. We’ve had backing from companies like Google, Canonical & Bytemark in the past, so we’re not against business by any means. However, if you think more of a rock festival with circuit boards then you’re getting closer to our ethos. The whole shebang is organised by a committee containing members of the Linux Outlaws and Ubuntu UK Podcast teams, along with great community leaders and volunteers. It’s a hybrid between the unconference Barcamp model and a traditional scheduled conference. I say hybrid because we do book headline speakers and have some set sessions in one track, but there are also 3 barcamp tracks and this year an Open Hardware track too.
