Highlights of LinuxCon NA 2016


This year the Linux Foundation set up a childcare program, where they hired caregivers who played with and cared for kids in one of the conference rooms within the venue. I brought my kids with me – one is 4 years old and the other 11 months – and it was a great way for the kids to play in a safe and secure environment while parents participated in the conference.

Adios, LinuxCon – Hello, Open Source Summit

On the last day of the conference, Jim Zemlin announced that the name of the event is changing from LinuxCon to Open Source Summit (OSS). This broader scope will allow the Foundation to bring more events under the same brand without any conflict. The next LinuxCon… er, Open Source Summit will be in Los Angeles in 2017, and I am already looking forward to it.
