About[edit]

Founded in 2008 by der.hans[clarification needed], one of several chairpersons for the Phoenix Linux Users Group, ABLEconf coordinated an annual conference hosted by a coalition of mostly Arizona-based Free Software advocacy and user groups that included LOPSA, Phoenix Linux Users Group, Software Freedom Day, The Ubuntu US-AZ Team,[1] PhxBuG, TeensOnLinux, TFUG, LUGY, ASULUG, DeLUG and EMCCLUG. Its purpose was to promote the use of Free Software and open source (FOSS) solutions in a business operations environment.[2] ABLEconf has not submit any updates since its 2012 cancellation through either its website, nor through social media, and appears to have been abandoned.
