Multimedia and Music Miniconf 2015
Multimedia and music continues to form a significant part of the way in which information is produced and consumed in our increasingly connected world. The Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) ecosystem provides a rich collection of software tools which not only permit the consumption of multimedia, but also its creation. The Multimedia and Music Miniconf at LCA 2015 will bring users and developers together to present, discuss and experience what FOSS multimedia and music software has to offer for content consumers and producers alike. The miniconf will close with an informal demo/jam session to allow FOSS community members to showcase their creations and inspire others.
This miniconf will appeal to a broad range of community members who have an interest in multimedia and music on open source platforms - users and developers alike.
