The Free Software community is maturing at a great pace. Individual
projects have become more reliant on non-developers for artwork, marketing, legal advice, and more. The trend has been for project conferences to become less technical in nature, too. This was not the case with LinuxConf Europe .
LinuxConf Europe, organized by the UK Unix and Open Systems Users Group  and German Unix Users Group , was a four-day gathering aimed directly at developers.
This new conference is an offshoot of the UKUUG’s Linux Developers’ Conferences
and GUUG’s Linux-Kongress. It is not surprising that LinuxConf Europe makes even DebConf look tame.
