(For reference, link to LinuxFest 2007)

This is our 10 year anniversary and we would like to have something special.


If possible outside:

  • Tent where we server drinks and food

Inside almost as always:

  • Tux Café - used as show room, selling stuff and drinks and to discuss.
  • Class Room for the courses.
  • Class Room for the installations
