The Seattle GNU/Linux Conference (we like to call it SeaGL) has opened its call for participation for the 2016 event.
SeaGL welcomes speakers of all backgrounds and levels of experience—even if you’ve never spoken at a technical conference. If you’re excited about GNU/Linux technologies or free and open source software, we want to hear your ideas.
- November 11-12
- Seattle Central College, 1701 Broadway Seattle, WA 98122
- Cost: Free (as in beer)
