Birds of a Feather Application

Birds of a Feather Application

The 2018 Ohio LinuxFest will be holding Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions between 6:00 and 9:00pm on Friday, October 12.

A BoF session is typically more interactive than a regular presentation; it is an opportunity for a group of people with a common interest to get together. Past session topics have included text editors, Google Summer of Code projects, configuration management systems, running Linux user groups, and GPG keysigning parties.

Available rooms will have a projector and screen and a capacity of about 30 people. While sessions are an hour long, please plan to wrap up 5 to 10 minutes early so the next group can come in and get settled.

Pre-applications will close on Wednesday, October 10 or when the available space is filled. If room space is still available, day-of signups will be possible on Friday, October 12 at the registration area.

You may include (plaintext) links, but please do not enter HTML as it will be stripped out.
