The Linux Symposium would like to offer special deals members of 
Linuxchix and UbuntuWomen, particularly because many female attendees 
have lost funding in recent years.

If you're interested in attending but cost has been a factor, please 
contact info at linuxsymposium.org before registering to get the discount.


The Linux Symposium (formerly the Ottawa Linux Symposium, but being held 
in Montreal this year) is a conference that I often find interesting and 
useful in surprising ways.  For me, the real benefit has been in meeting 
other linux folk in person, so even if the technical talks seem to be 
outside of your interests or over your head, it may still be worth 
coming to meet the people!

I'm going to be doing a very linuxchix-inspired BOF about attracting 
women to open source, and we usually try to do a linuxchix dessert night 
too.  I'd love to see more women out!  And please don't feel shy about 
saying hi or joining me and whoever I'm with for lunch/dinner/whatever 
if you come and would like some people to hang out with!
