Texas Linux Fest is the first state-wide, community-run conference for Linux and open source software users and enthusiasts from around the Lone Star State. Much like SCALE in Los Angeles, Ohio Linux Fest in Columbus, and Linux Fest Northwest -- and an ever-growing list of successful regional shows -- Texas Linux Fest is a weekend event geared towards individual users, rather than an expensive multi-workday expo that might cater primarily to sponsored attendees. Whether you use free software and Linux at home, in your place of business, in your school or non-profit, or you are simply curious, Texas Linux Fest offers something for you.

    • Depending on the expectation of Ambassadors to come and stay only for the conference and then leave directly after or if we are willing to allow for Ambassadors to partake in the after conference entertainment (last year it was a pub crawl on 6th Street) then we have the proposed:
    • For two nights, two rooms, two people per room:
    • NOTE: It appears the Hilton Garden Inn (the cheaper of the two Hilton Hotels Downtown) and the more expensive Hilton Hotel (event location) do not have rooms available for an April 1 check in and an April 3 check out so this is no longer an option.
