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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
