Announcing a Linux Plumbers Virtual Town Hall

The Linux Plumbers Committee is pleased to announce a Town Hall meeting on June 25 at 8am PDT/ 11am EDT/ 3pm GMT. This meeting serves two purposes. The first purpose is to test our remote conference set up. This is the first time we are holding Linux Plumbers virtually and while we can run simulated tests, it’s much more effective to test our setup with actual participants with differing hardware set ups around the world. The second purpose is to present on our planning and give everyone a little bit of an idea of what to expect when we hold Plumbers at the end of August. We plan to have time for questions.

Given this is a test, the number of participants will be capped at 250 people. The purpose of this test is to examine the scale to which the infrastructure can handle the expected demand for a virtual Linux Plumbers Conference. If you can’t make this day or are blocked by the participation cap from joining, we expect to be running more tests in the days to come.

Please note that the Plumbers Code of Conduct will be in effect for this event. We also plan to record this event as we will be recording sessions at the actual conference. We will post the URL for the town hall on the LPC blog prior to the event. We hope to see you there and help make Plumbers the best conference for everyone.
