It’s no secret that we love the open source stuff around Portland. Tons of cool open source developers, projects, user groups, and as luck would have it, a few cool open source conferences.
And one of the latest open source conferences to call Portland home, LinuxCon, has just announced their keynote speakers:
- Joe “Zonker” Brockmeier, openSUSE community manager, Novell
- Bdale Garbee, open source & Linux chief technologist at Hewlett Packard, and well-known kernel developer
- Mark Shuttleworth, founder of the Ubuntu distribution and Canonical
- Bob Sutor, vice president of Standards and Open Source at IBM
LinuxCon combines the developer and end user communities to produce more than 75 sessions that address “all matters Linux.” The event takes place September 21 – 23, 2009 in Portland, Oregon at the Marriott Downtown Waterfront.
Speaking of announcing, um, speakers. Word around the campfire is that another open source conference in town, Open Source Bridge, will be announcing its final list of selected speakers Thursday at noon.
Well, okay, yes. I’m privy to that list. No, I won’t let you sneak a peek. More news on that as it becomes available.
