The Linux and open cloud communities came together this week at LinuxCon and CloudOpen to advance technology for the next major shift in computing. Technical sessions, interesting keynotes, amazing parties and the hallway track provided the foundation for this work. The community also rallied together in song. Yes, a collaborative song, featuring Linus Torvalds, that shares at least one way we feel about the old way of building software.
There really are no words, so please watch and enjoy (oh, and share)!
Hosting an event with so many talented people gives us a unique opportunity to steal a few minutes with members of the community who are working on the technologies that will form the future of cloud computing.
LinuxCon and CloudOpen are off to a great start, and there is still a lot to come. In fact, the man (that would be Linus) takes the stage in about an hour. If you're not here, don't miss him on the live stream.
Today we're very excited to announce the winners of our "Find Skater Tux" competition, which invited community members to locate the skateboard-riding penguin on our web properties and send us the URL for a chance to win a custom Linux skateboard.
Two weeks from today The Linux Foundation will debut CloudOpen. This is a really exciting time in cloud computing, a time when developers and open source projects are clearly leading the way in technology innovation. The building blocks are in place thanks to decades of open source software development, and everybody is looking for their edge.
