Since 2020, when the Seattle area was hit particularly hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, the community oriented Seattle GNU/Linux Conference has been online only, although organizers say that next year it will return to in-person events.

“SeaGL has decided to remain virtual for our 10th conference, on November 4th and 5th, 2022,” organizers said in a blog on the site’s webpage. “The SeaGL staff have given a lot of thought to the format, and we want to avoid last-minute venue changes and disruption of travel plans due to health and safety requirements. We look forward to running a hybrid event and seeing people in person for our 11th conference in 2023.”

At the time of this writing, the conference hasn’t announced its schedule, nor has it published the URL for joining the online event when it happens. What we do know is that registration is not required for attendance (if you click on the blue “Registration” button on this page, we’ll direct you to the conference’s website where we’re assuming the URL for joining the event will eventually be posted).

“SeaGL is free to attend, and you do not need to register—just show up!” organizers say. “You may attend SeaGL without identifying yourself, and you are encouraged to do so to protect your privacy.”

For those of you who are not familiar with this popular Linux- and free software-focused conference, here is how event organizers describe the conference:

“Founded in 2013, SeaGL is a free—as in freedom and tea—grassroots technical summit dedicated to spreading awareness and knowledge about free / libre / open source software, hardware, and culture.

“SeaGL strives to be welcoming, enjoyable, and informative for professional technologists, newcomers, enthusiasts, and all other users of free software, regardless of their background knowledge; providing a space to bridge these experiences and strengthen the free software movement through mentorship, collaboration, and community.”

As a community event, you can be assured that pushing software solutions for enterprise use won’t be a priority here.

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.
