Opportunities for Students at the Linux Plumbers Conference

Thursday, August 14, 2008

We love helping our colleagues congregate together in the spirit of collaborative learning, and we're even more delighted to do so when it gives us the chance to help students learn more about Free and Open Source Software. Google's Open Source Team is a proud sponsor of the upcoming Linux Plumbers Conference, which will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA in mid-September. This first time conference has added a student specific mini-conference focused on providing hands on tutorials and development coaching; full-time students are welcome to attend the tutorial day along with the additional three days of the conference for only 50 USD. Tutorials will be taught by some of the most well-known members of the Linux community, including several of the conference speakers.

Early registration is open through Monday, 18 August. We certainly hope to see you there!
