Free and Open Source Software Sessions at NECC

NECC is the largest educational technology conference in North America, and it attracts 12,000+ participants. For the fourth year I'll be running an "Open Source Pavilion" there with 40+ computers running Linux, and with a speaker series that's now a part of the main program.

If you're going to be at NECC, we'd love any volunteer efforts in the Pavilion. (We could really use some machines right now for the playground area to demo different FLOSS programs.) Here is the schedule of Open Source sessions at NECC. If there is no location given, it is in the Open Source Pavilion--otherwise, the room location is after the title.

  1. Steve, there is just no way that anyone can keep up with everything going on at NECC. This is a GREAT list of open source activities. Kudos for organizing it!

    BTW, see you in Katy!
