OLF (formerly known as Ohio LinuxFest)
We don’t know a lot yet about this year’s OLF (formerly known as Ohio LinuxFest) because even organizers are just now (early August) beginning to make announcements.
Here’s what we do know:
Like a lot of other conferences, OLF will be in-person this year and held in Columbus, Ohio in the brand-new tower of the Hilton Columbus Downtown.
“You may be familiar with the existing Hilton across the street from the Convention Center – this new tower is located right at the Convention Center, connected to the original building with a skybridge,” event organizers said in a statement. “We are looking forward to having all of our regular activities there: presentations, the vendor expo, OLF Institute training, birds of a feather sessions, not to mention the fabulous afterparty.”
Organizers have also said that this year’s OLF will be hybrid, meaning that it will be available online, for those who still want to stay away from crowds, or who will be unable to attend in person for any other reason.
If you’re not familiar with this conference, OLF is a grassroots conference for the GNU/Linux/Open Source Software/Free Software community that started in 2003 as a large inter-LUG (Linux User Group) meeting and has grown steadily since, and these days is considered one of the largest and best community-based FOSS events.
Again, OLF hasn’t set their schedule yet and there’s no information about registration and the like. Until there is a URL available for registration, we’ll be linking the “registration” button to OLF’s website.
If your company or organization will be hosting a Linux or open source-focused event, let us know about it by submitting it to FOSS Force’s Events Calendar. No matter how large or small, from local users group meetings to large conferences, we want to help you get out the word. Submit your event using our convenient online form.
