Over on the other coast, Christchurch is hosting the 2019 L.C.A. - Australasia's regional Linux and Open Source conference.

Themed Linux of Things, the 2019 linux.conf.au will again attract speakers and attendees from across the world to socialise, fraternise, lecture, listen, ask, answer and share with their peers.

Hope to see some other West Coasters there.
