Linux Foundation announces LinuxCon Brazil 2010
The Linux Foundation has announced that its third regional LinuxCon conference will take place from the 31st of August to the 1st of September, 2010 at the Sheraton World Trade Center in São Paulo, Brazil. Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation said, “Brazil leads many other countries in its adoption of Linux and is a growing base of development. The time is right to take the industry’s premier Linux conference to Brazil,” adding that, “LinuxCon Brazil will provide a neutral forum in which key stakeholders from across the country can come together with the kernel community and global business communities to advance the platform.”
Confirmed speakers for the Brazilian event include Linux creator Linus Torvalds and lead Linux maintainer Andrew Morton, both of whom will deliver a keynote discussion about the future of Linux moderated by Zemlin. The event organisers are still seeking proposals from attendees for presentations in three different categories – developer, business and operations. Suggested topics include, for example, Linux on the desktop and embedded systems, Linux in mobile devices, Linux in the cloud and Linux appliances.
