The SeaGL 2017 Call for Papers is now open!

Are you from the US Northwest area? Have something cool to tell or show from the open source world? Then you should apply to give a talk at SeaGL this year!

SeaGL is a grassroots technical conference, taking place in Seattle, WA, United States in October 6-7th. It’s dedicated to spreading knowledge about the GNU/Linux community and free/libre/open-source software/hardware. I went last year, and there’s a lot of cool people with amazing stories on multiple open source topics. Now, we want to hear from you.

I’m sure there’s a lot of you with cool projects that you want to share with the world. Go ahead! This fourth year there’s 20-minute talks, where you can give a quick introduction to your piece of software/hardware, or 50-minute talks, where you can do a demo, and go in-depth about your project. Is it going to be your first talk ever? SeaGL is a great place to get started! Have questions about your talk proposal? They have weekly office hours in the #seagl channel on freenode to give you a hand!

Conferences like SeaGL are powered by their own attendees, so it’d be great to see new faces around showing off amazing stuff. I hope to see many new names on the schedule, as well as some other familiar ones.  Propose a talk, and hopefully, I’ll see you in October! And hurry – CFP closes on August 6th, midnight PDT.

Announcing UbuCon Latin America 2017

It’s my pleasure to announce UbuCon Latin America 2017! For a third consecutive year, we’ll be holding it at the University of Lima, Peru. This year’s conference will take place August 18-19th.

UbuCon Latin America is a conference where people from LatAm and the rest of the world get together to discuss the state of the art of Ubuntu, as well as cool things you can do with it. We are planning on two days full of Ubuntu topics!

Travel and accommodation information can be found here.

We would also like you to participate. If you have a talk you’d like to present, please fill out the call for papers. It will only be open for a couple weeks. After that, we’ll be publishing our schedule.

Would you like to sponsor UbuCon Latin America this year? Send an email to jose@ubuntu.com and we’ll get back in touch!

I hope to see you all in Lima, Peru in just a couple months!
