Boston University Corporate Education Center (BUCEC) in Tyngsboro, MA as part of their new Linux Education Initiative is co-hosting the first Desktop Linux Conference to be held on November 10th. In Conjunction with the conference, BUCEC has teamed up with LinuxCertified, Inc, (An Open Source training and services company based in Silicon Valley, ) to offer Linux and Open Source training to IT and business professionals in the Northeast region. BUCEC and LinuxCertified, Inc. will kick off the partnership with a four-day Linux boot camp from November 11th to 14th, immediately after the premier Desktop Linux Conference.
