Announcing the Linux Foundation Developer Travel Fund

I’m very pleased to announce a new initiative here at the Linux Foundation: the LF Community Travel Fund

When we formed the LF, one thing Jim and the rest of the team was very adament about was directly funding open source developers who need to attend conferences for technical collaboration. In the open source model, while face to face meetings are vitally important, sometimes community members can’t get their employers to fund these conferences (nor do they want to fund them themselves). We want to help bridge that gap.

The press release is here. We also created this humorous (we hope) shirt to commerate the awards. Be on the look out for honorees at upcoming conferences!
