The call for participation and registration opened for LinuxCon today signaling the beginning of planning for the 2nd Annual LinuxCon.
To recap on some of the highlights of LinuxCon 2009, which took place in Portland last September, we brought you:
- A fantastic line-up of speakers including Linus Torvalds, Mark Shuttleworth, Bob Sutor, and many more industry luminaries
- A packed program delivering content to a diverse audience of business, operations and developers
- A Technology Showcase & Lounge providing attendees and exhibitors the opportunity to network and learn from each other
- Exciting evening events including the Intel-sponsored LinuxCon/LPC reception and the Bowling for Penguins Fundraiser
- The added value of co-located events include the Novell SUSE workshop, LDAPCon and the Linux Plumbers Conference

How is LinuxCon different than other events? In a number of ways. This is an event specific to the Linux community, but within that, it encompasses all matters Linux. Other events specifically target certain groups in the ecosystem, but LinuxCon is the only event that really brings together a diverse group of all types of industry leaders and contributors – from business executives and end users, to developers (both in the kernel and out), to the systems administrators and senior technology operations leaders. This is the one event the community can attend each year to meet face-to-face and collaborate with all the community players. In addition to innovative technical content and a great mix of attendees, LinuxCon also offers an unmatched fun, vibrant and intimate atmosphere that is extremely conducive to attendee networking and collaboration.
If you pick one Linux event to attend this year, LinuxCon should be it – you will not be disappointed!
While we could not have been happier with the overwhelming positive response from last year’s inaugural event, we are amped to step up our game and make this year’s LinuxCon a bigger and bolder experience for attendees.
In addition to fantastic, streamlined content geared again towards a variety of attendees (this is the conference for all matters Linux after all!), prepare yourselves for some exciting new speakers, a host of new attendees to network and collaborate with, and some fun additions to add to your conference experience!
Plus, we are happy to announce the co-location of a number of mini-summits/conferences this year, including KVM Forum, Linux Storage & Filesystems Workshop, Virtual Memory Mini-Summit, the Wireless Summit, Power Management Summit and the Linux Security Summit, plus more to be announced.
The registration fee is only $300 through April 15th, so REGISTER NOW.
Stay tuned for more information on all things LinuxCon – and get ready to have a great week in Boston this August!
