Upcoming Events

LinuxQuestions.org is proud to sponsor a variety of Linux and Open Source related conferences and expos. The list of events coming up over the next couple months is significant, so I wanted to post about a few of them here.


Attend OSBC March 25-26, 2008 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco and connect with the best and brightest in the open source community, engage with your peers in thought-provoking sessions and networking functions, and see the latest vendors on display in the open source showcase.

You can register here. I attended this event last year and it was an interesting one. If you’re in the area and doing commercial Open Source, I’d recommend it. I will be attending the event again this year.

MySQL Conference & Expo

Fast-paced sessions, guru-programming advice, in-depth tutorials, late night hacking…the MySQL Conference & Expo packs a wealth of big ideas, know-how, and connections into 4 concentrated days and nights. Learn how to create the best database applications, tools, and software through expert instruction and hands-on learning at the MySQL Conference & Expo, April 14-17, Santa Clara, CA. Use code mys08linq to save 15% off registration fees.

I attended this event last year and had a great time. With the recent acquisition of MySQL AB by Sun, I am really looking forward to attending this year.

LugRadio Live USA 2008

LugRadio Live USA 2008 brings San Francisco the unique atmosphere of LugRadio Live UK, an event that has developed a strong reputation for providing a range of topics about free software, Open Source, digital rights, technology and more, a compelling list of speakers, exhibitors and birds of a feather sessions, and wrapping it all in a unique, fun, loose, social and inclusive event, which is often described as combining the atmosphere of a rock concert and a computer conference.

LugRadio Live USA 2008 brings this unique atmosphere to the USA, with around 30 speakers, over 20 exhibitors, an eclectic range of BOF sessions, and plenty of additional sessions such as our debate discussion panel, a showcase of five minute talks, tech demos, and of course a live recording of LugRadio in front of an audience.

This will be the first LRL I have attended and I’m really looking forward to it. Would you like to attend LugRadio Live USA 2008? I’m happy to announce that I’m able to give away a couple of tickets gratis. The first three people to contact me, confirming that they’d like to attend, will get a free ticket.
