While the 'L' in SCALE stands for Linux, we like to think that as an event and a community we are welcoming to all open-source platforms. We have never been Linux specific. With this in mind, we have invited Dru Lavigne to write a guest post about activities from the BSD community at SCALE 11x. -Ilan
Guest Post by: Dru Lavigne - Chair, BSD Certification Group
