WSLConf returns this week with worldwide sessions


on 8 September 2020

WSLConf returns this week, on September 9th and/or 10th, depending on where you are in the world. WSLConf is the community conference for Windows Subsystem for Linux, WSL. Sessions are planned to reach the growing WSL community around the world. Presenters are joining from Japan, Spain, the US, Brazil, Switzerland, France, and the UK.

WSLConf will feature main stage talks, interactive Q&A sessions, and workshops. Attendees can also network 1-1 directly with each other and visit vendor booths, just like a real conference.

Talks this WSLConf include database development with WSL, Java, WSL in the enterprise, AI/ML, Kubernetes, Uno Platform, Docker, Clojure, and WSL 2 kernel hacking. Presenters include community members, plus representatives from HPE, Nvidia, Canonical, Docker, and Microsoft, two CNCF Ambassadors, three Microsoft MVPs, and an Oracle Groundbreaker Ambassador.

WSLConf also features the unique opportunity for interactive Q&A sessions with the teams from Microsoft, Canonical, and Docker. There are also community workshops on innovative uses for WSL, including building a custom kernel and using snaps on WSL.
