Thanks to Philip Durbin for nudging this along. Unfortunately for Jonathan, he is at the mercy of my hectic schedule. Much like the events leading up to the fest itself, this has been a whirlwind linuxfest. Everything happened so quickly and its already been a month gone by! We would like to thank all of our sponsors for helping us keep this event free for all to attend. We couldn't have done this without you all. Thank you to the volunteers who really helped us out in a pinch.

This is almost the finalized schedule, we have 6 more speakers to coordinate time slots with. What won't change is the day the speakers will be presenting. If you are listed on Saturday, your talk will remain on Saturday. As soon as we hammer out the last speakers we will finalize the list. In the meantime you can find the SCHEDULE HERE IN PDF

Despite the lack of recent posts, we've been pretty busy coming up with new guest speakers. We have four more to give you which I will in the next couple of days. Our sponsors have come through for us and we're extremely happy to report our newest sponsors - Oracle, Arista Networks, and the fine folks at Rackspace Hosting! It is through their support that we are able to host our GNU/Linuxfest at Harvard this year! Our schedule has been a work in progress, we've had to move folks around so we can accommodate our speakers. Look for the pdf later this weekend.

Sorry for the short break, we have had to move our site over to a dedicated server. This happened over the last week, hence the lack of updates. However we've got come big news which you'll see in another post. We'll be hitting some of the local computer science depts in the coming weeks, if you are interested in having Jonathan come by and speak about the linuxfest please email us - contact @ northeastlinuxfest dot org We are planning to attend the next Boston Linux Unix group meeting tomorrow evening at MIT.

For those who would like to split the cost of a hotel or would like to ride share your way to the Northeast GNU/Linuxfest we have setup a mailing list you can join and put those request out there for people to respond. You can join THE MAILING LIST HERE I was trolling through reddit when I realized that someone had post to my account asking if there were any hostels near by and surprisingly enough there is. You can stay at one of these places for around $40/night.

Well as threatened, here is the tentative schedule. As soon as we set this in stone, this will show up in the page properly. For the moment it is in spreadsheet format. This was created with Libreoffice calc, I love Libreoffice and how far they have come in such a short time. A very nice alternative for those who can't afford the MS suite.

O.k. now say it with me, this is the year of the desktop! Yeah it's an old chestnut, I think the phrase went from prediction and transitioned into inside joke about four years ago. The funny part is with all the hand held devices and tablets, desktop computing seems to be taking a back seat to these devices. However I do not think desktop computing will ever go away. There are still people who like to hack, break, fix and build things.

Well after speaking with Fedora ambassador Mario Balletta, we might just be putting together a dedicated track for Fedora. What does this mean? They get an auditorium and classrooms to teach everything Fedora. This includes installing, configuring and discussions around Fedora in general. It's early yet but we're fleshing out the details. Its too soon to give you more, after all, FUDCON is only three weeks away. If you happen to be in Lawrence Kansas (yes the home of the Winchesters - Sam and Dean) FUDCON will be there this year.
