Do You Have Linux Memorabilia to Donate to Our LinuxCon Gallery?

We are putting together a historical gallery celebrating Linux’s last 20 years for LinuxCon in Vancouver. This gallery will be a walk down memory lane that should be fun for everyone, but we need your help! A few samples of what we already have collected: the original books Linus used to learn programming, a video booth where you can leave your story of...

My Highlights from the Newly Announced LinuxCon Schedule

Today we announced the full schedule for LinuxCon North America that will take place in Vancouver from August 17 - 19th. This year we had even more of a challenge than usual in putting together the program. Why? There were so many great submissions. (I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who submitted a talk and please don’t be discouraged if you didn’t make it this year. You had a lot of competition and we would love to see your submissions at subsequent events or in subsequent years. Check our events schedule for more events in Europe, Brazil and elsewhere.) This year is the 20th anniversary of Linux, which we have already been celebrating with a special video and contests. But this year’s speaker line up for LinuxCon will be a celebration on its own, with topics and speakers from across the industry, across the community and across the globe. While we do have a focus on enterprise Linux...

Open Compliance Training Helps Set-Top-Box Manufacturer Leverage Linux

At The Linux Foundation, we are lucky to work directly with many of the most innovative companies in the world. We all know the big names like Google, IBM and Intel but as Linux use has expanded into new segments - especially in the embedded industry - we get to work with smaller, but no less innovative companies. The best part is helping them make the most of Linux by getting involved in the community. As an example, we recently completed software compliance  and community involvement training at set-to-box manufacturer Altech UEC. We traveled to South Africa to help them understand how to deploy Linux and open source software to power their set-top-box technology. Altech made use of The Linux Foundation’s  Compliance Training resources to educate their developers and their executives on the process...

LinuxCon Lineup Reflects Reach of Linux

Today we announced our keynote speaker line up for this year’s LinuxCon North America set in beautiful Vancouver, BC in August. I am especially proud of this year’s slate as I believe it captures the current Linux zeitgeist. Enterprise Linux? We have the CEO of the largest and most successful Linux and open source company, Red Hat, opening up the conference. Embedded Linux? Mark Charlebois from the Qualcomm Innovation Center will give us his insight on how the embedded and mobile industries are changing and how Linux is fueling that change. Cloud Computing? We are lucky to have Marten Mickos, Chief Executive Officer at Eucalyptus Systems and former CEO of MySQL. Marten is at the forefront of the open cloud movement. Mobile Linux? Phil McKinney,...

Celebrate 20 Years of Linux With Us

Twenty years ago this summer, Linus Torvalds made a bold decision to share his operating system with the world. Not long after that, he chose to license it under the General Public License. Nothing in computing has been the same since. In fact, today Linux is the largest collaborative development project in the history of computing, which means that the 20th Anniversary of Linux is an opportunity for the community to come together in celebration of this great success story and in collaboration on how it will define the next 20 years of Linux. Today Linux is literally everywhere: in your phone, at your ATM, in your TV, on your desktop, at the movies,...
