CFP Closed

Our CFP has closed with over 100 submissions. Thank you everyone for your participation! We are working hard to get a well balanced line up without duplicate speakers picked out and will be announcing that shortly. Here's what the whole process looks like. Thanks to MonkeyMan for her organizational help.

What to Expect at Fossetcon

Fossetcon is not a GNU/Linux conference, nor is it a *BSD conference. Fossetcon can be more described as a *nix(Unix like) conference that focuses primarily on Free and Open Source Software and the systems that run it - whether it be hardware or software.

We are calling all FOSS, FLOSS and OSS Developers, Students, Teachers, Systems Administrators, Hardware Hackers, Enthusiasts, Newbies and Trolls(trolls need love too) to come out and participate in Fossetcon 2014 in Orlando, FL.
