Linuxfest Northwest 2010 Website now live!

The LinuxFest Northwest organizing committee is pleased to announce the new LinuxFest Northwest website to kick off the countdown for the 2010 festival! Take a look around the site, as it is drastically different from years past. Attendee participation is a key theme for this year’s fest.

The fest will be taking place April 24th, 25th 2010 in Bellingham, WA. The site this year has been redesigned in Drupal, allowing us to do some pretty cool things, including:

Community Input for sessions:
All sessions will be submitted via the website, and available for public viewing. Session authors can update their sessions at will, and people can select if a particular session is something they're interested in attending. If there are more sessions than spots to fill, the staff will choose sessions partially based on what people are thinking of attending.

Online billpay for Sponsorship and Exhibit booths:
You can now create a sponsorship and exhibit booth and pay online automatically! For those who don't use a CC/paypal, you can submit a PO number, and we will process your order similar to years past. As always, the fest for attendees is free. Sponsors and Exhibitors help keep this event free for attendees every year.

Online IRC, forums, ride share, etc:
We're really hitting hard the ability for attendees to get to know each other and plan ahead before the event. We hope the site will be a gathering place before the event so we can build a larger community than just the two days we're together. Get online soon and chat with your fellow colleagues!

Twitter/social networking:
continuing from years past, we have setup our LFNW twitter feed, @lfnw. People are suggested to use #lfnw hash tags if they're talking about us.

Post-event networking:
Our plan this year is to have video, images, audio, and other media associated with presentations easily available on the site after the fest concludes. The site is setup so that each year will be archived and easily available for all to see.

We hope you'll make time for the event. Tell your friends and signup online at

See you there!
