Home Business IT Open Source Arduino, sysadmin mini-confs at LCA 2013

The organisers of the Australian national Linux conference today announced three more mini-conferences would be held as part of the 2013 event in Canberra.

The conference, better known as LCA, is scheduled to be held at the Australian National University from January 28 to February 2.

Of the three mini-confs, two will be devoted to topics around systems administration and the third will cover open hardware, in this case the Arduino.

One of the sysadmin mini-confs is titled systems administration and the other will cover advances in Linux security. The former will be of interest to professionals who look after Linux systems; the latter will deal with advances in embedded and mobile markets, covering Android, Chromium and Tizen.

The Arduino was first introduced to the LCA by a former Linux Australia president, Jonathan Oxer, in 2010 when he gave a talk about it which proved to be extremely popular. In 2011, there was a mini-conference devoted to it; next year the mini-conf devoted to this little computer system will make a comeback.

The mini-conferences will be held on the first two days of conference week, with the main event taking up the remaining three days.
