LINUX CONFERENCE DAY; Linux and Open Source, A Low Cost and Reliable Solution

The conference was held on Thursday, April 22, 1999 at Aula Pangeran Kuningan, Grha Citra Caraka, Gedung Telkom, Jl. Gatot Subroto. It was a successful conference. With more than 450 people attending, this conference shows that Linux is a very interesting issue in Indonesia, especially in the information technology world.

Compaq, SuSE, Oracle, Telkom, and Indosat supported this event as sponsors. Not just that, Redhat, Komputek, and Linux Singapore Portal helped make this event successful.

The committee, with regret, had to refuse more than 150 people that would like to register for the conference after the registration deadline. This is because the conference room will not be able to handle more than 500 people and also because the committee will not be able to handle that many people.
