The Ontario Linux Fest - Saturday, 25th October 2008 - Toronto, ON
About The Ontario Linux Fest
"The Ontario Linux Fest is a non-profit event that brings together professionals, students and enthusiasts who share a common interest: Linux and Open Source software.
First and foremost the Ontario Linux Fest is a conference designed to present compelling topics of interest to users of Linux and Open Source software. These topics will span a full range of interests that may be technical, motivational, social, legal or essentially topics that hold current interest. Attendees will find out what is happening in the Open Source world from the people directly involved.
It's also a social event. With a Welcome Party and Wrap-up Reception there will be lots of time to network and socialize with like-minded professionals. It's a great event to find new friends, or business partnerships and perhaps employers.
The event was years in the making and was born from the organizer's inspiring experiences at the Ohio Linux Fest. Those two future organizers, Richard Weait and John Van Ostrand, contemplated staging a complementary event in Ontario. It took years for the ideas to coalesce as the Ontario Linux Fest."
