Though it may not be the most appealing of metaphors, the rhetorical early bird does end up with the proverbial worm.
That said, the SCALE 15X “Early Bird” discount for the first-of-the-year North American Linux/FOSS expo ends in four days, on Jan. 22.
Also, you may want to act quickly in making your hotel reservations at the discount rates offered by both the Sheraton and Hilton hotels in Pasadena soon, because both hotels will be closing down the discount rates on Feb. 8.
As you may know, last year SCALE formed a diversity committee which was announced in December 2015. In that announcement I said the first thing we wanted to do was to collect, analyze and publish some data. Today, I give you that data. (Sorry for the delay - while this was originally written in May 2016, changes in SCALE staffing this year lead to a lot of additional work which delayed the lengthy edit and review process for this).
Registration for SCALE 15x is now open -- be the first in your neighborhood to register for the largest open-source event in North America. We will be returning to the Pasadena Convention Center March 2-5, 2017.
The Full Access Pass, which provides access to all SCALE sessions, is $75. The Expo Only Ticket, providing access to exhibit hall only, is $20. The exhibit halls for SCALE 15x are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
