Last week, we had our biggest turn-out ever for our Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit and our Legal Summit held immediately before. Collab has come a long way since the first meeting in 2007 at the Googleplex. While some of the issues and players have changed at heart the result is the same: a cross-section of people from the industry and community who may otherwise not meet collaborating together. We have assembled slides and videos from the week so if you weren’t able to join us, please enjoy.
I especially enjoyed Feargal O’Sullivan from NYSE’s talk on OpenMama, the legal track on day two and Gerrit Huizenga’s talk on cloud computing. I want to also especially thank our platinum sponsors Intel and Qualcomm and our gold and bronze sponsors who helped us hold this event. Both companies are truly fabulous partners for our work here at the Foundation and we should all thank them for their support of Linux.
The week started with our Linux Foundation Legal Summit, which is a neutral, invite-only gathering of top attornies from members of The Linux Foundation and community legal leaders. This one-day event is part of an ongoing series of legal summits, where corporate attorneys can openly discuss current and upcoming legal considerations around Linux. These neutral, non-profit forums are the only ones of their kind, and are a really important part of our ongoing commitment to protect and advance the state of the Linux legal ecosystem. If you’re interested in taking part in our legal activities, please see the form on this page or contact me.
We’re looking forward to more great content and collaboration at LinuxCon Japan, LinuxCon North America, the Automotive Linux Summit, and LinuxCon Europe. Please check out our complete schedule on our Linux events site. Hope to see you there!
