Ubuntu Live! banner

The doors are finally open to register for Ubuntu Live, our first global Ubuntu user conference. It is being hosted by O’Reilly Conferences in the prelude to OSCon in the same venue, and exists “to provide a meeting place for Ubuntu users, contributors, and partners–and the Ubuntu-curious”.

The list of sessions is already impressive (we had a phenomenal set of papers and presentation proposed, but had to whittle it down to this initial list). I’m sure there will be some additional sessions too. But the thing I’m most excited about is the list of speakers, so you will find me in the front row for every keynote on those dates.

Let’s meet up in Portland!

    Hey Mark, are there any plans for an Ubuntu Live in the UK?

    Mark Shuttleworth says:

    Not yet. We hope to alternate US / Europe, or run one in each region per year, but it will depend on how many people show up and what the demand is for a conf in each region!

    Excited about the event, but sadly I won’t be able to make it. To bad GSoC programmers can’t get free flights there and back. I even have housing. Family lives there. ;) I am working on PyStart.

    I hope you’ll bring some of these events closer to home (UK) in the future.

    or somewhere in Asia even! But you’ll have to make 3 separate events as its very big (South Asia, East Asia and South East Asia).

    Yay! \o/
    I just decided to say ‘goodbye’ to Apple & Microsoft with the new computer I plan to purchase, and now I see that there is a conference coming to town. I might not be into Ubuntu enough to get much out of the conference by then, but I will offer sleep and fridge to some nice computer geek in exchange for a little installation and tutorial.

    Mark, can you tell me why it’s so expensive ? For a simply user, prices are too high. Why are they so expensive ?

    I really appreciated the Sunday opening for the conference. Even though many Portlanders probably thought a Sunday kick-off was unusual; I really appreciated it. It gave me the opportunity to attend on a day that was not sponsoed by my employer, and my SO (significant other a.k.a. wife) was off from her job responsibilites so she could be “on” with our kids. Where will the next Ubuntu Live Conference be held? I would like to make advanced arrangements so that I can get US passports for my family if necessary.
