LCA is a conference about the Linux operating system, Free and Open Source software and hardware and the thriving and diverse communities that have grown around its encompassing philosophies. Run in a different Australian or New Zealand city each year by a team of local volunteers, LCA regularly attracts more than 500 people to learn about and to help shape the future of Open Source. linux.conf.au last came to Sydney in 2007. More recently, LCA2016 was held near Melbourne in Geelong, Victoria and LCA2017 visited Hobart, Tasmania.
