Working on my conference travel plans and wishes for the year. I am downgrading OLS to a maybe, the cost is becoming more of a factor. Likewise, while I had incredible fun at FOSDEM last year, and OSCON in 2006, I cannot justify the airfare/hotel expenses for them. I would like to attend SCALE at some point as well, but uncertain for the same cost reason.

Done:
  • February 25-27, SCALE 9x @ Los Angeles, CA, USA. [SCALE9x].
  • April 11-14, MySQL UC @ Santa Clara, CA, USA [MySQLconf].
  • April 13, Embedded Linux Conference @ San Francisco, CA [ELC].
Confirmed:
  • April 27-30, STS-134 launch @ Kennedy Space Centre, FL, USA [STS134].
  • May 26-29, Bowen Island, BC, Canada.
  • June 25-26, Mini Maker Faire Vancouver @ Vancouver, BC, Canada.
  • August 17-19, LinuxCon 2011 @ Vancouver, BC, Canada [LinuxCon].
  • August 25-28, PAX Prime 2011 @ Seattle, WA, USA.
Maybe:
  • July 25-29, OSCON @ Portland, OR, USA.
  • August 7-11, SIGGRAPH 2011 @ Vancouver, BC, Canada.
  • October 19-22, Access 2011, @ Vancouver, BC, Canada.
  • October 22-23, Google Summer of Code 2011 Mentor Summit @ Mountain View, CA, USA.
Would like to go, but out of my financial reach:
  • February 5-6, FOSDEM @ Brussels, Belgium.
  • June 13-15, Linux Symposium @ Ottawa, ON, Canada.
  • September 7-9, Linux Plumbers @ Santa Rosa, CA, USA.

- In 2006, I went to MySQL UC, and OSCON.
- In 2007, I went to the Vancouver PHP conference and LWE-SF.
- For 2008, I went to MySQL UC, and I'm going to be at OLS2008 in Ottawa next week, July 21st thru 27th.1

I'll have the entire Sunday free in Ottawa (my flight home is in the evening, and the conference itself ends up Saturday). Anybody that wants to hang out, that would be cool, or sight-seeing.

Additionally, if you're interested in PGP keysigning, or CACert assurances, you should seek me out with some ID. This applies doubly to all Gentoo developers with the upcoming tree-signing work.

While I'm not going to OSCON since it conflicts with OLS, my friend Zak Greant (really I mean it, he lives just up the street from me!) is going to OSCON, and putting on a totally free mini-conference within it: FOSSCoach. If you're just trying to get a start in open source from a beginner's perspective, and would like to be more than just a user, it should be worth checking out. (I meant to hype it a while ago, but was too busy).
