Ohio LinuxFest Announces Keynote Speakers for 2008
Columbus, Ohio – The Linux community continues to move in new and diverse directions while building a successful momentum each new year. Credit for some of that momentum goes to those community members that advocate about and to the community. Ohio LinuxFest is proud to recognize two such community members by announcing Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier and Jono Bacon as keynote speakers for this year's Ohio LinuxFest occurring October 10th - 11th.
Mr. Brockmeier is the openSUSE Community Manager, where he puts the word out about openSUSE and works to grow the openSUSE project by verifying the project has the needed support and tools. Mr. Brockmeier has contributed to books on many Open Source topics. He has also written for many publications, including Linux Magazine, Sys Admin, IBM developerWorks, Linux Weekly News, Enterprise Linux Magazine, ZDNet, Unix Review, NewsForge.com and Linux.com.
Mr. Bacon is the Ubuntu Community Manager, where he helps advocate Ubuntu and empowers community members in the Ubuntu community to have their goals, and visions become part of Ubuntu. With his involvement in LugRadio and the recently ended LugRadio Live, Mr. Bacon has found time to contribute to many books, including Linux Desktop Hacks, Building the Perfect Website with PHP and MySQL, PHP and MySQL Web Applications: Building Eight Dynamic Web Sites and The Official Ubuntu Book. He also has published articles in Linux User and Developer, Linux Format and Linux Magazine.
Starting in 2003 as a meeting for Linux User Groups, Ohio LinuxFest has grown into a major annual conference for Free and Open Source Software (F/OSS) enthusiasts. Each year people from throughout the world gather to share his or her interest in software freedom and open source software.
This year, Ohio LinuxFest meets at the Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC) from October 10 through October 12. The expo, keynotes and presentations happen October 11. A free Enthusiasts Pass grants admission to the Ohio LinuxFest expo and presentations. A Supporter Pass is available for $65 to attendees who wish to help offset the costs of the conference.
Ohio LinuxFest will offer a Professional Pass, which will include the Ohio LinuxFest University training program on October 10, for a registration cost of $350 a person.
