More than Education
New Networking Passes Increase Access, Collaboration
LinuxCon and CloudOpen are widely recognized for both top-notch technical content and networking opportunities. These conferences are designed to encourage collaboration and connection that can lead to advances in technology, new ideas for open source projects, job opportunities and more.
The Linux Foundation for the first time this year will offer Networking Passes, which will include access to these unique opportunities to anyone. The Networking Pass will get attendees into all events except the conference sessions. The pass is $250 through June 6, 2014 and $300 thereafter.
Women in OSS Luncheon
The Linux Foundation will host for the second year in a row a Women in Open Source Luncheon at LinuxCon and CloudOpen. The luncheon will be free and will take place Thursday, August 21, 2014. This is a networking opportunity for women in open source to connect and learn from each other. Registration for the Women in OSS Luncheon will open July 1, 2014.
The Linux Foundation is also offering scholarships for women who want to attend LinuxCon and CloudOpen but are not sponsored by a company or do not have personal funds to attend. To apply, please visit: https://docs.google.com/a/linuxfoundation.org/forms/d/1eTxpMWCIQnK2aX_s-XQhsU2UPTWS0ggQFFB5w9nI354/viewform.
The Linux Foundation this year will host a Newcomers Reception on Tuesday, August 19, 2014. It's important for the Linux Foundation to reach out to new speakers and attendees and encourage their participation in these events. The reception will help maximize the experience for first-time attendees and speakers who might otherwise not be inclined to introduce themselves to other attendees throughout the conference. By hosting this the night before LinuxCon + CloudOpen begin, the organization hopes it will increase interactions throughout the week and give new attendees the opportunity to meet some of the key Linux kernel contributors who will be attendance. Registration is open to first-time attendees only at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/17GYWJveYeQ2Vz3-n6BVZD7QCiAJEjv5OzSNmriOKmOo/viewform.
LinuxCon and CloudOpen are made possible with generous support from sponsors including LinuxCon Diamond sponsor Cisco; LinuxCon Platinum sponsors HP, and IBM; CloudOpen Platinum sponsors Citrix and HP; and LinuxCon Gold sponsors Google, Intel and Samsung.
