Linux Symposium discounts available

The Linux Symposium would like to offer special deals members of

Linuxchix and UbuntuWomen, particularly because many female attendees

have lost funding in recent years.

If you're interested in attending but cost has been a factor, please

contact before registering to get the discount.

The Linux Symposium (formerly the Ottawa Linux Symposium, but being held

in Montreal this year) is a conference that I often find interesting and

useful in surprising ways. For me, the real benefit has been in meeting

other linux folk in person, so even if the technical talks seem to be

outside of your interests or over your head, it may still be worth

coming to meet the people!

I'm going to be doing a very linuxchix-inspired BOF about attracting

women to open source, and we usually try to do a linuxchix dessert night

too. I'd love to see more women out! And please don't feel shy about

saying hi or joining me and whoever I'm with for lunch/dinner/whatever

if you come and would like some people to hang out with!
