LinuxCon & CloudOpen

Looks like a 100% chance of clouds! Open Source has played an enormous role in the innovation and advancement of Cloud Computing, with Linux taking center stage at the core. CloudOpen launched to overwhelming success in 2012 to meet the needs of this growing community. It is the only event dedicated to covering all of the open source projects, technologies and companies that make up the cloud.

We’ll once again be hosting CloudOpen in conjunction with LinuxCon in 2015, and LinuxCon attendees have full access to the CloudOpen conference including 55+ breakout sessions, attendees, and even more collaboration opportunities.  Did we mention that’s at no additional cost?  One low registration fee gives you full access to both conferences.
