This year is moving by quickly and it seems that LinuxCon is now just a few months away.  It has been very exciting watching the event take shape, and I know it will be a success for this, and years to come.  Some of the highlights that I see for this year include:

The speakers: We’ve got the big names, some you see at many other events, and some that are rarely seen.  Check out who is speaking.

The added value of co-located events: Okay, so this year more than ever, it is important to get the most bang for your buck.  Well spend a week in Portland, OR this September, and that is very much going to happen!  In addition to all of the great content and programming you will find at LinuxCon alone over three days, you will also find the following events: LDAPCon, the Linux Plumbers Conference, an openSUSE Developer Day, FOSS Dev Camp, a SE Linux mini-summit and, with the absence of Brainshare this year, Novell will be presenting their Linux content at their own tracks at LinuxCon.  Plus, we keep adding to this list every week.  Attendees will get so much out of being here!

The fun: In addition to great content, we want you to enjoy your time at LinuxCon outside the classroom.  So we have put in a ton of ‘hallway track’ time each day.  We are working on some fun and relaxing evening events (free beer!) plus some cool lounge areas for attendees to take a break in during the day.  We are brainstorming on some fun schwag ideas – let us know if you have any thoughts – and much more.  We promise that you will have a good time while you’re here!  Hey, it’s Portland – how can you not!?

If you haven’t registered to attend LinuxCon this year, you should – and make sure to do so before August 15th when the registration fee goes up.  It is only US$399 until then, and you can get an even larger discount if you are: a Linux Foundation Individual Member (30% off), a company sending three or more people (15% off) or attending Linux Plumbers Conference (also 30% off).
