Oggcamp 11 – Celebrating Open Technology
Oggcamp 11 is a free two day unconference, for technology, Linux and Free Software enthusiasts, and is organised by the teams that bring you the Linux Outlaws and Ubuntu UK podcasts.
This will be the third year that this popular event has taken place, and each year it gets bigger and better, attracting attendees from across the globe, currently 400 tickets have been issued, with only 70 currently remaining.
Previous Oggcamps have been hosted in Wolverhampton and Liverpool.
The event itself is an unconference, which in format is an unscheduled conference, where the attendees suggest talks or workshops and host their talk on the day. There will be multiple tracks for talks on the day, so there is something for everyone. Talks can be on any topic, and all attendees are encouraged to suggest a talk.

- Campbell Barton – Blender Project
