Announcing the first LundukeFest - "Make Computers Fun Again"
The January 29th virtual conference will include "Linux Sucks 2022" and many other fun-filled presentations and breakout sessions.
Big, big news today.
The first ever LundukeFest — brought to you by The Lunduke Journal — will be held on Saturday, January 29th, 2022!
What is LundukeFest, you ask? Great question!
LundukeFest is a one day virtual conference celebrating the fun and joy of computers.
No Enterprise Servers. No Cloud Deployment training. No corporate buzz words. Just computer nerds, nerding-out about nerdy computer things… old and new alike.
What can I expect at LundukeFest?
The final schedule of LundukeFest will be published on Monday, January 17th. But we can tell you the following will be part of that final schedule:
One Hour Presentations from Bryan Lunduke, including:
Linux Sucks 2022
Weird Tales of Linux Weirdness
The (True) Untold History of the Internet
Turn Your Android Phone Into the Ultimate Retro Computing Battlestation
Hang out with like minded nerds and talk about a variety of topics, including: Linux, Alternative Operating Systems, and Retro Computing.
Other sessions, TBA, that bring joy into computing.
Can I present at LundukeFest?
Yes! Or at least… possibly! The call for papers for LundukeFest is open until Friday, January 14th, 2022. There are a few slots available.
We are being very picky about the presentations for LundukeFest. But, if you have an idea for a session that meets the following requirements:
Can be about any computer nerd topic (from Retro Computing to Programming to Gaming) and…
Must make you smile (at least a little)
… then send your proposal in!
Email your proposal — along with any past presentations, videos, or articles you have worked on — to Bryan@Lunduke.com. Subject line: “LundukeFest Proposal”. Tip: Keep it brief. No more than about one paragraph for the initial pitch.
Who can attend LundukeFest?
Information for all attendees (including how to access the conference) will be provided via exclusive emails and posts for all full subscribers.
Subscribing is cheap, can be cancelled at any time, and provides many (many!) perks beyond a ticket to LundukeFest. (Including eBooks and exclusive articles and shows.)
You can also gift someone else a subscription to The Lunduke Journal (and a ticket to LundukeFest)… which is just a gosh darned nice thing to do.
My recommendation: Subscribe now for a monthly subscription to The Lunduke Journal. You get full access to LundukeFest (a whole day worth of nerdy entertainment and socializing) for just a couple bucks. If you enjoy The Lunduke Journal (or want to be involved in future LundukeFests), stick around. If not, cancel. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. (Though I’m pretty sure you’ll stick around.)
Subscribers will also get full recordings of every presentation from LundukeFest after the conference ends.
Why is it named “LundukeFest”?
Because it is being funded and organized by The Lunduke Journal.
… also I like putting my name on things. ;)
Will there be an in-person LundukeFest?
We are still working out details, but it is possible there will be an in-person satellite location for LundukeFest in the central Texas area. Where people will be able to hang out, in the same physical space, while enjoying the rest of the virtual conference.
No guarantees on the in-person part, but we’re working to make it happen. More details will be provided as we get closer to the date of the conference.
