LUGOD at LinuxWorld Expo 2004


LWE SF 04 LUGOD exhibited at LinuxWorld Expo in San Francisco, August 2004.

We were given a 10'x20' booth to share with various other User Groups. The LUGs on that participated were: LUGOD (Davis), BALUG (San Francisco), and PenLUG (Redwood City).

Photos!

When did it take place?

The Expo portion of LWE took place Tuesday, August 3 through Thursday, August 5. Floor hours were 10am-5pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 10am-4pm on Thursday.

What did we get

LinuxWorld Expo (IDG) provided us with:

  • Booth space (10'x20') to share with two other LUGs
  • Carpet
  • Table
  • Chairs
  • 100 expo passes for LUG members
    (Contact Emily Stumpf if you'd like any)
  • 15 exhibitor passes to share with two other LUGs

What was our purpose there?

Our main purpose was to get the word out about the various user groups, so that new Linux users know they have a community that they can become part of, and get help from.

We also promoted Picn*x13, the free picnic and barbecue celebrating the Linux operating system's birthday. (That event took place in Sunnyvale, California, the Saturday following LinuxWorld Expo).
