One more note about SeaGL, you absolutely don’t have to register in advance. The event is 100% free, so all you have to do is show-up. However, if you’d like to help us get a sense of expected attendance then we’d love it if you did choose to register through Lanyrd, thanks!

About

The 2014 Seattle GNU/Linux Conference is scheduled for October 24th and 25th at Seattle Central College (Maps).

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 cost of attendance is free.

Attendee Registration will not require the use of non-free software.

Exhibitors

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 sponsor@seagl.org for our vendor prospectus.

Exhibitor space is limited, please contact us right away if you are interested in a table.

Sponsorship

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 sponsor@seagl.org.
