Linux Foundation End User Collaboration Summit, Oct 13-14, NYC
(Reposting from Jim Zemlin's Blog. Jim is executive director of The Linux
The Linux Foundation will be hosting our first ever End User Collaboration Summit this October in
This forum is designed for sophisticated users of Linux who will be able share best practices about
how they are using Linux and speak directly with the core developers of the Linux platform.
A big part of our mission is "translating" Linux. It doesn't get any more direct than connecting
key Linux developers and end users. This event provides an opportunity to actually see how
technology is developed today by some really talented and dedicated people.
In addition to panel discussions, Open Spaces sessions, and End User Lightning Talks- among others
- the two keynotes are from Anthony Williams, author of "Wikinomics, How Mass Collaboration Changes
Everything," and Jon Corbet, Editor of Linux Weekly News. We will also hear from Ron Hovsepian, the
CEO of Novell and Paul Cormier, the President of Red Hat.
It's by invitation, but registration is free, in keeping with the idea of having it open to end
users. You can request an invitation by filling out the form here.
I can guarantee it'll be a fascinating and extremely useful two days.
We look forward to seeing you.
