SELF 2016 EOF, SELF 2017 dates set

Another SouthEast LinuxFest is in the books.  We have all the videos recorded, and they only need to be trimmed and uploaded. So look for them very soon on YouTube.  In the interim, I encourage you to join SELF-Announce. All important announcements related to the event (Dates, Venue, RFP, Call For Sponsors, Schedule) will be pushed to that list.  It will be low traffic and should be roughly 6-7 emails a year, so don’t worry about a spam filled inbox.

We will be sending surveys to sponsors/speakers/attendees soon. They are totally anonymous and don’t even collect identifying information, but of tremendous help to us. Please fill them out when they arrive.

Didn’t get that sweet FOSS job you wanted while you were at SELF? You still have a shot! Look through our job board to see what is available.

While we’re all just now recovering from this year’s event, we are pleased to announce that the 2017 SouthEast LinuxFest will be June 9-11, 2017 at the Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel. Our room block, which always sells out, is now open. Book now!

Now that SELF 2016 is in the books, we’d like to take the time to thank those who went above and beyond to help make this year’s event possible:
