The Linux Plumbers Conference is a technical conference for the open source community focussing heavily on solving development issues and moving code forward.
The conference brings together top developers working on the “plumbing” of Linux - the kernel subsystems, core libraries, the windowing system, etc. - and gives them three days to work together on core design problems face-to-face, both within subsystems and across subsystems. Also included are talks on new and innovative projects of interest to the Linux community.
Participants include invited attendees, speakers selected through an open, competitive review process, and students. Registration is open to the general public as well.
Last date for registration - September 21, 2009.
