LinuxCon is Taking Shape, With An Impressive Speaker Roster

by Ostatic Staff - May. 26, 2009

As Matt Asay notes today, plans for the Linux Foundation's LinuxCon conference in Portland Oregon, September 21st to 23rd, are firmed up. The event has an impressive roster of sponsors, including Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Novell, and Intel. The lineup of speakers also looks very notable, including Linus Torvalds, Mark Shuttleworth, IBM's Bob Sutor, OpenSUSE Community Manager Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier, HP's Bdale Garbee, and Matt Asay from Alfresco Software. Until June 1st--just a few days away--you can register for the event for $299.

You can find a complete list of presentations and tutorials slated for LinuxCon here. Linux Torvalds will be on a roundtable panel discussing the future of Linux, and there are presentations planned on technology, implementation, legal topics and more.

If you're planning on going, there is guidance on getting a hotel room and more at the site. It looks like a good event.
