Conference in Cambridge
In early September, about 250 developers from the Linux kernel and related projects gathered in Cambridge, United Kingdom, to discuss their work and look to the future.
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.
