SCALE To Host Women in Open Source Mini Conference

Los Angeles, CA
January 2, 2007

The Southern California Linux Expo announces plans to host a 'Women In Open Source' Mini-conference. The goals of the conference are to encourage women to use technology and open source and free software, and to explore the obstacles that women face in breaking into the technology industry. The audience will be those women who may have an interest in technology, but hesitate to get into it because they believe it's a male-only club. The conference will be held in conjunction with the Fifth Annual So Cal Linux Expo. The Women in Open Source mini-conference will be held February 9th, 2007 at the Westin LAX Hotel.

If you are interested in speaking, there are still speaker slots available.
