The Linux Foundation is preparing to host its third LinuxCon Europe  and this year for the first time will also host CloudOpen in Europe . The combination of the two events along with a variety of other co-located events taking place next week represents the largest gathering of Linux and open cloud professionals in Europe. From KVM Forum & oVirt Workshop  to Xen Project Developer Summit  and Yocto Developer Day  to the Open Compute Engineering Workshop , there is something for everyone.
CloudOpen was originally organized in North America in 2012 and focuses on the open cloud and the projects that comprise it - from Ceph to CloudStack, Chef, Gluster, OpenStack, SaltStack and more. Open source software and collaborative development are advancing technologies for cloud computing and there are many, many projects emerging to support this work. CloudOpen brings all of these projects together in one place where developers, users and vendors can learn more about them and understand how best to collaborate. These projects represent some of the most cutting-edge work in IT, and we're really excited to offer this forum in Europe for the first time.

Lastly, I'd like to invite all attendees to join The Linux Foundation and evening event sponsor Open@Citrix Wednesday  night for a James Bond-inspired 'Casino Royale' party at the National Museum of Scotland. Dinner, drinks, casino games, and entertainment will be provided. We know the Linux community can put '007' to shame when it comes to a good party.
