Hi

Does anyone know if there are any Linux conventions in the UK? If not there should be, so we can expose Linux more in the UK. Maybe Linux Format could help set one up.

That's the thing in the UK - they're either infrequent or invitation-only (and it's seriously annoying!).

Perhaps joining a LUG would be a good idea? They meet up and organize events - sometimes for the public. Keep an eye on your local LUG's maling list.

It just so happens there's a UKUUG conference in Manchester at the start of next month: http://www.ukuug.org/events/linux2008/programme/categories.shtml

Conventions cost serious money to organise, I should imagine that the biscuit barrel at LXF towers would have to remain empty for quite some time to fund one.
