Linux Foundation events are studded with Linux and open source community leaders, as well as some eccentric personalities. What better place than one of these events to sit down and talk to the people who are making innovation happen in software development and cloud computing?
We kick off our LinuxCon Europe Q&A series today with keynote speaker and openMaterials Co-founder Catarina Mota. Mota shares some really interesting insights with us on open hardware, her favorite projects and how open hardware compares to open source software. I'm really looking forward to hearing her speak at LinuxCon Europe in Barclenoa November 5-7, 2012.
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.
