linux.conf.au 2016 and Optiver are proud to support diversity in our community. The Optiver Diversity Programme is one way we ensure that linux.conf.au 2016 continues to be an open and welcoming conference for everyone. Together with Optiver this program has been created to assist delegates from under-represented cohorts who contribute to the Open Source community but, without financial assistance, would not be able to attend the conference.
