Earlier this week I wrote about the VIP/speaker gift we're giving away at LinuxCon Europe  (Twitter hashtag: #linuxcon) and shared with the community how anyone could win their own Linux Futbol Club soccer jersey  (make sure to read that story , you could still win if you comment).
I also mentioned the co-located events taking place at LinuxCon Europe. The Linux Foundation works with community members and projects to help host important workshops and summits at LinuxCon events in an effort to maximize opportunities for the world's most talented software developers and cutting-edge users to collaborate real-time.
Here are some highlights from each of these co-located events.
Embedded Linux Conference Europe 
This is a very popular event, attracting hundreds of embedded developers every year. With the dominant role Linux is playing in consumer devices and automotive technologies, we expect the best turnout ever this year. November 5-7.
KVM Forum and oVirt Workshop 
With the rise of cloud computing, the role of the hypervisor is more important than ever. KVM Forum attendees will collaborate on this work, as well as work on datacenter virtualization and desktop infrastructure. The oVirt Workshop will be held in conjunction with KVM Forum November 7-9, 2012.
OpenSAF European Symposium 
On November 8, OpenSAF users, developers, engineering managers and academics from a variety of industries will meet to advance service and high availability technologies.
EFL Developer Day
On Monday, November 5, developers can come to the EFL Developer day to learn more about Enlightenment, the window manager, compositor and graphics toolkit for the Linux desktop and mobile.
This workshop will take a deep dive into the world of storage. The latest release of GlusterFS will be reviewed, as well as information on how to manage your Gluster instances. This workshop takes place November 8. Check out the short video interview recently done with Gluster Community Technical Lead Eco Willson.
Yocto Project  Developer Day
The world's leading embedded developers will gather together on November 8 to work on advancing the Yocto Project. This Linux Foundation Labs  project is an open source collaboration that provides templates, tools and methods to streamline custom embedded Linux development. If you're wanting to learn about the most cutting-edge embedded Linux development work, don't miss this.
Wireless Mini-Summit 
Taking place November 8 and 9, developers interested in Linux bluetooth, NFC and Wireless LAN (802.11) shouldn't miss this.
That's a lot of opportunity for collaboration on some very important open source projects. You can learn more about these events on the LinuxCon Europe co-located events  page.
The complete LinuxCon Europe schedule is available online. Hope to see you in Barcelona in just a few short weeks!
