Get Started in Free and Open Source at Ohio LinuxFest

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

The Open Source Programs Office's Cat Allman will be in Columbus, Ohio this weekend for the seventh annual Ohio LinuxFest, which runs from September 25th - 27th. Cat will be speaking on Saturday the 26th about "Getting Started in Free and Open Source," which will cover the basics of participating, choosing a project, joining a community, and more. Both newbies and veterans will gain insights about the issues that Open Source newcomers face.

This will be Cat's second time attending Ohio LinuxFest. She notes, "I was so impressed by the conference in '07 that I'm really honored to get to speak there." If you missed meeting Cat last time, this is your chance to hear her talk, introduce yourself, and ask questions in person.

Come see Cat talk and get started in FOSS!
