The following is a press release from the organisers of Linux.conf.au 2015.
AUCKLAND, New Zealand – Friday 21st November 2014 – linux.conf.au 2015 Organisers are proud to announce our funding programme!
Last night a group of us gathered at Te Papa in Wellington to celebrate the NZ free and open source community. The NZ Open Source Awards celebrated the contributions of people applying open source principles to many aspects of creativity like software, hardware, making, science, and art.
The event, as always, was brilliantly run, with MC duties provided by Hamish McEwan and the heavy organisational lifting led by Catalyst IT. Joy Liddicoat provided a stirring keynote about ways in which open source offers value to the world's least privileged and most at risk.
