Linux Bangalore/2004: hackers galore

Wednesday, 15 December 2004, 1:00 PM EST

Linux Bangalore/2004, India's biggest tech-fest for free and open source software was held in Bangalore, the country's IT hub, last week. Attendees from many countries got to see more than 80 presentations delivered by 62 speakers in a span of three days.

Linux Bangalore has always been a hacker-focused event, this year there were quite a few general interest talks as well. This shift was also seen in the visitor composition. While the show is traditionally popular with students and hackers, 2004 saw a greater number of company developers and government and corporate people. But yes, only here can you find a 14-year-old attending a session on "Being a geek."
