These events aren't part of the conference proper, but might be of interest to people arriving early, or those who live in Sydney.

FOMS

The first "Foundations of Open Media Software" Developer Meeting will be held on the Thursday and Friday before linux.conf.au 2007, and aims to get the right people together to take the next steps in open media software. Meet and discuss your plans for the next 12 months with other developers and forge relationships to unwind the kinks, making open media kick ever more arse!

Twisted

Twisted will be having a sprint and a meetup on the weekend before linux.conf.au 2007. TwistedMicroConf will have the details.

Settling in

Sunday is all about getting there and getting settled. For those who don't know their way around UNSW, download the PDF map.

The colleges are located in the bottom left, and the Conference venues are the upper right near the Chancellery Building.

The Sir John Clancy Auditorium will be used for the larger talks while Mathews A, Mathews B, Mathews C and Mathews D inside the Mathews Theatres building will be used for most of the other talks. Also CLB 1 and CLB 2 will be utilised.

Around campus

In the afternoon, keep your eye out for groups of hackers huddled around access points, hurling Frisbees around the village green, or in the region of the conf venue.

Dinner at the Lowenbrau

For those that will be in town and looking for food, Steve Walsh (clug_man on irc.freenode.net) has organised a group booking at the Lowenbrau Keller, a German beer hall located in the Rocks area of Sydney. If you didn't get back to him before the 23rd of December, don't worry, the venue is keeping 30-50 seats aside for people to come along and join in, but you will need to order off the ala-carte menu.

If you did RSVP and sent through the deposit, and you're a vegetarian, shoot Steve an Email by the 10th of January, so he can let the venue know.

On the night, you want to catch either the route 392 or 394 bus that departs from the NIDA side of Anzac parade. Both routes reach the stop at about the same time, between 6.40pm and 6.45pm. When you get to Circular Quay, walk up the hill to Harrington Street, then walk towards the Harbour Bridge until you get to Argyle Street. The Lowenbrau Keller is half way up the hill on the right hand side.

Ideas for Saturday activities

Post-conference Activities

This is a wiki page, you can contribute! Just log in to edit.

These events aren't part of the conference proper, but might be of interest to people staying in Sydney a few extra days, or those who live in Sydney.

Events in Sydney Jan 14-20 (during conference)

See Meetups and OutAndAbout.

Free software-related groups and activities in Sydney Jan 21–28

  • Sydney LinuxChix meeting, Monday 22nd January, 2007, 5:30pm–6:30pm, St Leonards. Women interested in Linux or Free Software welcome.

  • Sydney Linux Users Group meeting, Monday 22nd January, 2007, 6:30pm–9:30pm, St Leonards. A lot of the Sydney linux.conf.au attendees and movers and shakers are SLUG members, and if you're staying in Sydney for a few more days it would be a good way to supplement your Free Software exposure for the trip. Info on this meeting is available at http://www.slug.org.au/node/55

Social events for attendees Jan 21–28

  • Linuxchix miniconf social activity: Blue Mountains trip, Sunday 21st January, 2007.

  • Mountain Bike ride - probably held on Sunday January 21st after the conference. Most likely venue: Royal National Park (at the southern end of Sydney). Contact Brendan if you're interested, and he'll add you to the list.

  • Even though Robert Collins won't be in the country, his tradition of the Sunday Yum Cha continues on the 21st. Anyone interested contact Lynne by no later than 10am Sunday please. We meet at around midday at Paddy McGuires Irish Pub at the Capitol Theatre in Central. (Follow the tram lines from Central station). Then it's on to Golden Harbour Restaurant in China Town for a 1pm Yum Cha (Dim Sum). After that? There are many things to do on a relaxed Sunday afternoon in the city!

Other events in Sydney Jan 21–28

  • Big Day Out music festival, Thursday 25th January, 2007. The Big Day Out is a big touring rock festival, this year featuring Tool, Muse, Jet and others. The Sydney show sold out in late 2006.

  • Australia Day, Friday 26th January, 2007. Australia Day is an annual public holiday, set on the anniversary of Arthur Phillip's and the First Fleet's landing at Sydney Cove in 1788. There will be various parades and events in the city centre, and on Sydney Harbour, check the website for details.

  • Kasabian show, Friday 26th January, 2007. Kasabian are touring and playing at the Enmore Theatre. $57.

  • Opera in the Domain (map of the Domain), Saturday January 27th, 2007: The event is free but crowded, people usually take along picnic blankets to claim their spot and picnic supplies for sustenance. It's worth taking a raincoat and good bags to shove everything into; getting out of the Domain events in a downpour is always slow and entertaining.

  • Sydney Festival events. The Sydney Festival is a month-long cultural festival in January. Events on after lca include: The Lost and Found Orchestra, Uncle Vanya and A Midsummer Night's Dream. See the free events too.

  • Sydney has a tradition of outdoor movie screenings in summer. The Moonlight Cinema is not far from UNSW.
