Howdy all. The 2016 SouthEast LinuxFest will be from June 10-12 at the
Sheraton Charlotte Airport in Charlotte, NC. As usual our event is
totally free to attend. Our call for speakers is still open but if you
want to speak hurry and submit soon -- it closes on 4/1 (no joke! ;)). We
love taking a generous helping of talks from regular guys from the region
as speakers. It's a great chance to tell everybody about your passions and
network with the people who make the software you love and use every day.
We'll be streaming talks again this year free onto YouTube -- but don't
think you'll get the full experience watching from your chair! We had
scores of people hired to work on the FOSS they love at SELF last year and
we'll have several companies at SELF again this year looking to hire YOU
for your FOSS skills. And our geeks with guns and craft beer bottle share
events are pretty legit, too!
If anybody from this LUG will be attending -- please email me off list.
SELF is trying to coordinate to send back "swag boxes" to LUGs with
shirts/stickers/etc they can share with their members.
If anybody wants to submit a job to our job board (free!) please feel free
to send that to me off list as well and I'll get that up right away. We
got several people hired that way last year as well!
If you are interested in submitting a talk, becoming a sponsor, getting
some propaganda to spread on your blog/social media, volunteering,
organizing a carpool, organizing a room share, finding a FOSS job, or
becoming an ambassador, you can get all that information here:
Hope to see ya'll there!
