A bit more about linux.conf.au 2020

Our theme for linux.conf.au 2020 is ‘Who’s Watching’, focusing on security, privacy and ethics. As big data and IoT-connected devices become more pervasive, it’s no surprise that we’re more concerned about privacy and security than ever before. We’ve set our sights on how Free and Open Source Software could play a role in maximising security and protecting our privacy in times of uncertainty. With the concept of privacy continuing to blur, Free and Open Source Software could be the solution to give us ‘2020 vision’.

While we have a lots of interesting talks on this theme, it is by no means limited to this. You’ll find talks and tutorials in software development, Linux kernel internals, DevOps, community management and more.
