You read it right! After several years of being absent, Ubuntu is going to be present at OSCON this 2016. We are going to be there as a non-profit, so make sure you visit us at booth 631-3.
It has been several years since we had a presence as exhibitors, and I am glad to say we’re going to have awesome things this year. It’s also OSCON’s first year at Austin. New year, new venue! But getting to the point, we will have:
- System76 laptops so you can play and experience with Ubuntu Desktop
- A couple Nexus 4 phones, so you can try out Ubuntu Touch
- A bq M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet so you can see how beautiful it is, and see convergence in action (thanks Popey!)
- A Mycroft! (Thanks to the Mycroft guys, can’t wait to see one in person myself!)
- Some swag for free (first come-first serve basis, make sure to drop by!)
- And a raffle for the Official Ubuntu Book, 8th Edition!
The conference starts Monday the 16th May (tomorrow!) but the Expo Hall opens on Tuesday night. You could say we start on Wednesday 🙂 If you are going to be there, don’t forget to drop by and say hi. It’s my first time at OSCON, so we’ll see how the conference is. I am pretty excited about it – hope to see several of you there!
