This week, the University of Otago will host the first Australian Linux conference to be held outside Australia.

The five previous approximately annual conferences have been held in various Australian state capitals since 1999 (there was no conference in calendar year 2000). This year’s event will involve as speakers some of the seminal figures of Linux and wider open source development, including Rasmus Lerdorf, creator of web-related open source programming language PHP, Andrew Tridgell from the Samba project, Linux kernel developer Dave Miller, Damian Conway, developer of Perl, Jon 'Maddog' Hall, executive director of Linux International and Mark Shuttleworth of Ubuntu and Thawte, often described as the First African in Space (he was a civilian cosmonaut aboard the Russian Soyuz TM-34 mission in 2002).
