Session scheduling plan

First off, we’d like to thank everyone who submitted a proposal to LFNW2019… we have some amazing content this year, and choosing which sessions will be presented is a hard choice. We’ve never had so many excellent proposals to choose from; whittling it down to our usual 80 sessions is a challenge!

We’ve heard from a few of you, that you’re anxious to know about your session, and we hear you. Here’s the current schedule, so you know what to expect:

  • Call for proposals closed on Jan 31.
  • We’re reviewing proposals, and will send out most acceptance and rejection notices by February 14th (+2 weeks - Happy Valentine’s day).
  • We need to hear back from you, confirming your accepted sessions, by February 28th (+2 weeks).
  • We will publish the session list on March 1st.
  • We will submit a draft schedule to presenters shortly thereafter, and expect to have a final schedule with all room assignments and times posted by March 15th.

We hope this helps you plan, and we look forward to talking to our presenters more often moving forward. Feel free to email us if you have any questions!

We've got a new logo!

This year will be the 20th LinuxFest Northwest so to celebrate, we are unveiling a fresh new logo! Twenty years is a huge milestone for any institution but LFNW is special from the rest. Entry to the fest is always free and every year it comes together just from the donations of our sponsors and the long hours put in by our staff. To say it is a labor of love is an understatement.

This logo is a representation of our beautiful Pacific Northwest from the boats in the bay up to the trees and mountains. Throw in a dash of Tux and here we are! We hope you love it as much as we do.

We’re very thankful to Fly Paper Graphics for the time and effort they put into the design, and their patience through many iterations. Expect a full update to the site shortly, as well as a press kit.
