Organizers of the 5th Annual Ohio LinuxFest are seeking presenters to share their expertise with an estimated 1,000 members of the “Linux community,” a diverse group of end users, independent developers and others associated with the open-source computer operating system. The Linux system is one of the world’s most successful examples of free, open source software. It is passionately supported by a community that extends across the globe – a community that turns up in droves for Ohio Linux Fest, the largest event of its kind in the Midwest.

Ohio LinuxFest 2007 will be held Friday, September 28 through Sunday, September 30 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Most presentations will take place on Saturday. The audience will consist of a wide range of Linux community members, including devoted end users, independent developers, small systems integrators, as well as IT architects and engineers. Organizers are seeking approximately 20 speakers to address community-related technology and/or topics of interest. Each presenter will be allowed 45 minutes. Organizers will provide A/V equipment.

Previous speakers included Richard Bowen of Asbury College discussing web site enhancements using the Apache Web Server; Chris Dibona, Google’s Open Source Programs Manager discussing Goggle’s relationship with open source developers and how the company uses open source code in its products, and Stephen Swaney of Fort Systems, Ltd. Offering tips on u sing open source software to set up secure email gateways.
