WSLConf is the first and only community conference dedicated to Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).

Canonical proudly sponsored the first WSLConf in March 2020. Since then Ubuntu 20.04 on WSL 2 has arrived and support for AI/ML workloads is available in Windows Insiders.

With WSL growing, WSLConf community organizers did not want to wait another year to gather the community together. WSLConf is returning in September 2020 in virtual form, as microWSLConf.

microWSLConf will feature a virtual hallway track for unscheduled conversations by attendees and breakout sessions for affinity groups.

The schedule for microWSLConf has been broken into two shorter sessions expanding the geographic reach of the virtual conference to Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Session One

NYC: September 9 9pm-12am
SEA: September 10 6pm-9pm
LON: September 10 2am-5am
HKG: September 10 9am-12pm
Session Two

NYC: September 10 10am-1pm
SEA: September 10 7am-10am
LON: September 10 3pm-6pm
HKG: September 10 10pm-12am

microWSLConf is still accepting presentation proposals through 15 August. Submit a presentation proposal at wslconf.dev.
