SCALE Linux Training Class fills up!

The Linux Installfest + Training Class is full!

Conducted by trainers from OneSource Course and assisted by SCALE volunteers, this class has proven since its inception to be consistently popular.

Attendees will install Linux on a personal computer during a  Saturday morning installfest, then be trained in the basics of system maintenance in the afternoon.

I'll be at SCALE 13x!

With SCALE 13x fast approaching we wanted to help everyone let the Internet at large know that they'll be at the show.  We've created a series of web badges that can be displayed on your personal website, Twitter account, Facebook page or anywhere else online letting your friends and followers know you'll be attending or speaking at SCALE 13x.

Volunteer Call for SCALE 13x

SCALE 13x is just around the corner. And this time, it's one day more. At the same price too! Being a totally volunteer driven event, we are looking for people that can help in all areas, including registration, room management, AV, expo floor management and runners. 
 
Some of our current chairs are graduates of this program, and they worked their way up from stuffing bags to handling registration lines, to eventually running full events at SCALE (If you've been to the SCALE party, you know what I mean).
 

BoF registration open for SCALE 13x

Have a passion you'd like to share? Is there a community you want to connect with at SCALE? Want some open discussion on a topic?

If so, create or join a BoF as SCALE 13x will continue the tradition of providing space for groups to meet and discuss their common interests.

BoFs will run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, the 19th, 20t, and 21st of February.

SCALE Days

With SCALE 13x fast approaching the schedule of events will be online & available very soon.  In the interim we wanted to give everyone a quick update on what to expect at SCALE 13x.  As many of you have noticed we have added an additional day this year, SCALE will begin on Thursday February 19th.  SCALE Thursday will be dedicated to specialty session tracks, these will be similar and in addition to the tracks that have traditionally populated the Friday schedule.  The list and schedule of the Thursday events will be published along with the SCALE 13x schedule.
