SCALE 11X: Discounts, UpSCALE and more

Release date: 
Wednesday, January 2, 2013

First things first: The SCALE Team wishes everyone a happy and prosperous 2013 as we head toward the first major Linux/FOSS event of the year in North America, SCALE 11X.

Without further delay, the first of many SCALE 11X announcements for 2013 includes:

– Early bird discount closes next week: Don't be late – the early bird registration discount closes next week on Tuesday, Jan. 8. After that date, the registration kicks up to its normal rate, so don't delay. To take advantage of the discount until Jan. 8, visit to see the discounted rates and to register.

On Jan. 9, registration continues until the start of the show at the regular prices.

– UpSCALE Talks: Got something to say? Can you get it all said within five minutes while your slide show goes on behind you? Then you're the perfect candidate for the annual UpSCALE Talks at SCALE 11X. Like the Ignite presentations at O'Reilly events, UpSCALE talks allow speakers to give a quick presentation while the speaker's 20 automatically-advanced slides are shown.

– SCALE: The Next Generation: In its second year, the Southern California Linux Expo will host a “youth driven” conference where the Free & Open Source Software community leaders of tomorrow can spotlight their talents and ideas today. Youths are encouraged to determine the content and help steer the direction that this mini-conference will take. The Call for Papers for young people to present at SCALE: TNG are being accepted.

Once again, the SCALE team wishes everyone a happy 2013!
