Conservancy's Executive Director To Speak at Linux Fest Northwest
Kuhn To Deliver Marathon Session on FLOSS Licensing, GPL and Conservancy Itself
April 23, 2011
Bradley M. Kuhn, Executive Director and President of the Software Freedom Conservancy, will give three talks spanning Saturday 30 April 2011 and Sunday 1 May 2011 at Linux Fest Northwest in Bellingham, WA, USA.
At Linux Fest Northwest, Kuhn will give an unprecedented three talks at one two day conference. First, 1:30PM on Saturday, Kuhn will give a talk about the history of GPL enforcement over the past twelve years, including details of the GPL BusyBox enforcement that Conservancy engages in regularly.
On Sunday, Kuhn will speak about how GPLv3 is a substantially improvement over GPLv2 for both users and developers. Kuhn will follow this talk (at 2:30PM) with a full overview talk of Conservancy, its mission, and what Conservancy does to help Free, Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects.
Those in the Pacific Northwest are invited to attend this gratis event. Linux Fest Northwest is one of the largest FLOSS conferences on the west coast, and Conservancy is delighted that the organizers have given so much of the conference time for attendees to hear about all the work and ideas from Conservancy's Executive Director.
