-- Windows/Mac Vs GNU/Linux, Showing the alternative Software

-- Code Red Security

-- Desktop Programming under GNU/Linux

-- How to build a web server in 15 minutes/Open Source Web Applications and frameworks

-- GNU/Linux in the enterprise

In parallel with the sessions we'll be helping people install GNU/Linux on their computers.

If you feel you can help with anything and want to help us spread the use of Free/Open Source Software please post a comment here saying what you can/want to do. We'll need people to copy and distribute CDs, Flayers, And give technical support.

Hope to see you all there :)

@Boody consider me in -isA-.

@Boody consider me in -isA-. I was hoping to give a session about something related to web programming but it still looks like it's not that kind of topic that interests undergraduates/newbies.

so, I will be glad to help in any activity.

and a +1 to Amr Ali's previous session in Alex, expecting the same this time too.

I can participate as a

I can participate as a volunteer with my laptop which has good specs for running games (Intel Core2Duo 2.1GHz, 4GB RAM, ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics card with 512MB of VRAM), so I am thinking about making some gaming show (like I did in Alexandria's 2009 fest), but I will need a big screen and good speakers.

What do you think?
