SCALE 9x Schedule Firms Up

Jan 30, 2011

The 9th Annual Southern California Linux Expo is less than four weeks away. This Expo is shaping up to be the best SCALE ever, with five tracks of quality presenters, over 80 exhibitors, and more content than it’s ever had.

The theme for SCALE 9X is “Open Source: Rising to New Heights”. Both the program and the SCALE 9x t-shirt promote this theme. You can check them both out at the SCALE 9x event page on Facebook. This year’s t-shirt will be a collector’s item!

Traditionally, above and beyond the presentation tracks and expo floor SCALE provides space for Free and Open Source Software organizations to meet. It’s one way we give back to the FOSS community. This year there are more of these great activities at SCALE than ever. Here’s the current (but expected to grow) list:


  • Build an Open Source Cloud Day
  • DevOps Day Los Angeles 
  • FOSS Mentoring
  • Fedora Activity Day
  • LPI Testing
  • Los Angeles PostgreSQL Day
  • Open Source Software In Education
  • PGP Keysigning Party
  • SCALE University
  • openSUSE Day


The SCALE schedule is online now at /scale9x/schedule. While it’s always subject to change, it’s essentially complete. Check out the great presentations that will be given over the course of the three-day event!

The block of hotel rooms allocated for SCALE attendees at the Hilton is going fast; if you plan on staying overnight, don’t wait too long to make your reservations!

There are only a few slots left at SCALE’s version of lightning talks, our “UpSCALE” event. If you’re contemplating presenting send your proposal to
