Guest Post: Don Marti

Down with "grinding" in games! My least favorite activity in a game is mindlessly clicking and collecting. You won't catch me playing Cow Clicker or any of its imitators. I'd prefer a challenge.

Off the Internet, my least favorite grinding games are the ones where you have to go around to the booths at a trade show to collect stamps. Where's the play value in that?

Interview: Jorge Castro - Juju

Video Interview by Eric Van Johnson

We recently had the opportunity to speak with Jorge Castro of Canonical and discussed Juju, MaaS, Ubuntu Cloud, and his upcoming presentations and workshop at SCALE 11x

"The Cloud" has made building environments quicker and more dynamic however managing these deployments can still be a challenge. Canonical, the good people who bring us Ubuntu, have created an Open Source project to help with this process called Juju (https://juju.ubuntu.com/). Juju helps you manage your deployments by turning the deployment process itself into a service allowing you to connect several different systems and services in one seamless effort.

You can catch Jorge and learn more about Juju at the Eleventh Annual Southern California Linux Expo, February 22-24, 2013 at the Hilton Los Angeles International Airport.

Guest Post - Phillip Banks - SCALE 11x FOSS Tours

SCALE is not your grandfather’s convention so neither should the experience be. There are a lot of exhibitors to see and too many things you want to get your hands on. Our two full ballrooms of exhibits can be overwhelming to some. All our exhibitors want you to hear about their product, solution or mission and we definitely have worked hard to get the people in front of you that offer the most bang for the open source buck.
