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 1.0 in Orlando, FL.

Fossetcon aims to provide the community with the needed resources of training, knowledge and collaborative efforts to aid our community in all of our endeavours. If you're looking to elevate your career path or even get access to free training and certifications then we are willing to provide it. We're looking for speakers, volunteers and hackers to help engage our communities by providing a venue full of like minded individuals.

Expect Fossetcon to be a FUN event full of diverse people, forward thinkers and great companies that all contribute to free software and the communities surrounding it.
