The 2014 Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is scheduled for October 24th and 25th at Seattle Central College (Maps).
SeaGL is a grassroots technical conference dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge about the GNU/Linux community and free/libre/open-source software/hardware. Our goal for SeaGL is to produce an event which is as enjoyable and informative for those who spend their days maintaining hundreds of servers as it is for a student who has only just started exploring technology options. SeaGL's first year was 2013.
The Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is now seeking presenters. We want to present a diverse and welcoming conference. We’re also interested in hearing from people who don’t regularly present at conferences and people who have never presented before. If it has something to do with GNU/Linux or free and open source software and you’re excited about it – then we’re excited about it! Below are some of the things that we think our audience wants to hear about:
How to get involved in free/open source software
Dev/Ops - both beginner and advanced topics
Career tips and strategies
Web development tools and strategies
Policy and licensing that affects free and open source software development
Hardware, Embedded Linux or the Internet of Things
Scaling and optimizing GNU/Linux
The “cloud” and other distributed services
Building free and open source communities
Using free software at home, work or school
Security and privacy online
Anything else that you think would be interesting to new or seasoned GNU/Linux
