Linux Conferences cater for a diverse range of people. There are tutorials from topics ranging from the Linux kernel, PHP and using Linux with HAM radio. Because of this wide focus, though some topics of special interest to community members are not able to be covered to their full extent. Mini-Conferences give sections of the Linux community up to two days to focus specifically on their area of expertise enabling smaller sections of the community to get together and share their knowledge and network with each other.
linux.conf.au 2005 Mini-Conferences are:
- Audio Miniconf
- Clustering Miniconf
- Education Miniconf
- Embedded Miniconf
- Security Miniconf
- Debian Miniconf
- OpenOffice.org Miniconf
- Gnome.conf.au Miniconf
Mini-Conferences are held over the two days prior to the linux.conf.au main conference (18 - 19 April 2005). Anyone attending linux.conf.au 2005 may attend any or all of the Mini-Conferences just by turning up.
If you would like to meet with like-minded people at linux.conf.au 2005 but there isn't a Mini-Conference for you, you might like to have a BOF session instead.
