One of the most beneficial parts of linux.conf.au is the 'hallway track' - where lots of conversations, exchange of ideas, and building of friendships occurs.

A daily running BoF will depart form the Waurn Ponds Residences entrance at 6am. There are two near by running options that get regular traffic Also depending on numbers and interest we may try some further afield trips such as driving to near Torquay to run some of the Surf Coast walking track or the beaches (depending on Tides). A good example of why we may wish to do that is this photo from a run 2 years ago http://svana.org/photos/surfcoastcentury2014/websize/p1050258.jpg which is near Torquay at dawn.

A daily running BoF will depart form the Waurn Ponds Residences entrance at 6am. There are two near by running options that get regular traffic Also depending on numbers and interest we may try some further afield trips such as driving to near Torquay to run some of the Surf Coast walking track or the beaches (depending on Tides). A good example of why we may wish to do that is this photo from a run 2 years ago http://svana.org/photos/surfcoastcentury2014/websize/p1050258.jpg which is near Torquay at dawn.
