Eclectic Tech Carnival aka /etc 2007 will held from:
Wed 11 to Sun 15 july, 2007
in Linz, Austria
The Eclectic Tech Carnival is a gathering of women interested in technology. It’s held once a year, each time in a venue where there has been an interest in hosting one. The first was in Pula, Croatia in 2002, followed by Athens (2003), Belgrade (2004), Graz (2005) and Timisoara (2006). The event grew out of the Gender Changer’s hardware and FLOSS courses.
Women from all over the world organise the /etc through mailing lists, IRC and IRL meetings – and women come from all over the world to the /etc itself.
The week-long carnival includes workshops on installing free and open source software, the hardware crash course, soldering, building websites, plus art exhibitions, performances, cultural discussions and related presentations.
