Plumbers Conference This Year

The 2012 Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC) will be held on August 29-31 in the Sheraton San Diego, and we hope to see you there! To that end, the LPC Planning Committee is pleased to announce a call for microconferences. These microconferences are working sessions that are roughly a half day in length, each focused on [...]

Plumbers Conference Next Year

Hello everyone, Thanks for making this year’s plumbers conference such an enjoyable event.  Next year, we’re planning to co-locate Plumbers with the Kernel Summit and LinuxCon in San Diego from 29-31 August.  The current plan is that Plumbers and LinuxCon would run as parallel but separate events.  To accommodate the parallelism, we’re still planning on [...]

Ride Sharing back From Plumbers

For those who want a lift to either San Francisco or its airports, we’ve added a new section to the Ride Sharing wiki.  Please make sure to note which day you need a lift for (Friday or Saturday) and for drivers what time you’ll be leaving.

Additional hotels

It appears many of you have chosen to put off hotel booking to the last minute. As a result, there may not be space available in the negotiated rate block at the venue hotels (the Hyatt and the Marriott). There is still space available at higher rates, so please call for availability (see the “attend” [...]

Ride Sharing From San Francisco or Oakland Airports

If you’re going to be renting a car at the airport and are willing to transport others up to Santa Rosa (provided they have proximate arrivals, of course) please indicate that on this wiki page. You may also sign up to share rides on the same wiki page.

Travel Assistance

We have some funds available to provide for people who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference – if you’d like to apply, please visit the Linux Foundation page here.

Shuttle bus updates

The travel page has been updated with details of the shuttle bus running between the Airport Express dropoff point and the Hyatt. It’ll be running for most of Tuesday, and then again on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Bear in mind that tickets for the Airport Express do not guarantee a seat – make sure [...]

Invitation from O’Reilly

Marsee Henon from O’Reilly has extended an invitation to tour the O’Reilly campus (in Sebastopol, just a few minutes from the conference venue) to any interested attendees. The O’Reilly campus hosts O’Reilly publishing, Safari Books Online, and Make magazine. Please contact Marsee if interested. Logistics are TBD, but if there’s enough interest we’ll likely get [...]

LPC2011 Internet uplink sponsored by has graciously agreed to sponsor the Internet needs of our conference. They’ll be providing a 30/30Mb dedicated to the conference facility. Without their support, we would have been stuck with a single 20Mb downstream link (unknown upload speed) shared between the conference, guest rooms, and hotel office. This sponsorship is especially nice because [...]

Late-Registration Deadline Approaching

Just a reminder that there is less than two weeks remaining before the late-registration deadline, at which point the registration fee will increase significantly. So please check out our shiny near-final schedule and register today. Besides which, this year’s Linux Plumbers Conference is well on its way to filling up, which means that unfortunately someone [...]
