Announcing SeaGL 2016 Dates!
April 20, 2016
We’re excited to announce the dates for this year’s Seattle GNU/Linux Conference: Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12, 2016.
We’re also happy that Seattle Central College will once again host us this year.
SeaGL is a grassroots technical conference dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge about the GNU/Linux community and free/libre/open-source software/hardware. Our goal for SeaGL is to produce an event which is as enjoyable and informative for those who spend their days maintaining hundreds of servers as it is for a student who has only just started exploring technology options. SeaGL's first year was 2013. The SeaGL web site is built with Jekyll and we use OSEM for event management.
The cost of attendance is free.
Attendee Registration will not require the use of non-free software.
You may attend SeaGL without identifying yourself, and you are encouraged to do so to protect your privacy.
We will have a small hall available for exhibitors. Free tables will be available for free/libre/open-source software/hardware and non-profit organizations, and there are several sponsorship levels for everyone else. If your organization would like an exhibit table at SeaGL, please send an email to email@example.com for our vendor prospectus.
Exhibitor space is limited, please contact us right away if you are interested in a table.
We can't do what we need to do without the support of the community. If you would like to offer financial support but don't need an exhibit table, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our fiscal sponsor, Linux Expo of Southern California, Inc., has partnered with Coinbase so you can donate Bitcoin to support SeaGL. Thank you for your support!
