Delegates attending our Professional Delegates Networking Session will hear from our special guest speaker Antony Green.
Antony will be joining us to talk about the statistical processes used to call Australian elections. What is the available data, what assumptions are made to predict results, and how is the Australian process more robust than in the United States?
Our Professional level delegates will be able to hear Antony speak at the Professional Delegates Networking Session (PDNS) on the evening of Saturday 15 January. If you have not yet bought a ticket to linux.conf.au 2022, now is a great time to register to attend. For those of you who are having a difficult time convincing your employer to let you attend, we have a helpful guide to assist.
