Submission + - 2011, shaping up to be stunning! (

Dante_J writes: In the proud tradition of being one of the best "grass roots" FOSS conferences on the planet and just weeks away, 2011 in Brisbane Australia, is shaping up nicely. Keynote speakers include Vint Cerf, Eric Allman, Mark Pesce & Geoff Huston. Many impressive Miniconfs, Presentations, Tutorials and an Open Day are included. Everything from FOSS rockets to kernel hacking, haecksen to Meego. This is one of those rare occasions of the FOSS community gathering in one geographic location, expressing both breadth and depth. A week of geeky goodness. Regos are available now, but time is limited.
