The Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) is happening this week, and TrueOS is there!

What is SCALE?

From the SCALE website:

SCALE’s mission is to provide educational opportunities on the topic of Open Source software. Open Source software is any software that meets the litmus test of the OSI (Open Source Initiative). Examples of OSS are GNU/Linux and the various BSD operating systems, and applications such as LibreOffice and Firefox.

Our target audiences are both current and potential users of OSS. Those users can be individual computer users, educational institutions, or businesses.

The Expo’s educational focus is composed of (but not limited to) technical seminars and booths where, among other things, both commercial software and hardware vendors, and local non-profit groups (for example, Linux Users Groups), participate in product display, and software demonstrations and tutorials, respectively.

We are vendor and distribution neutral in our outreach efforts.

What we’re doing

Both iXsystems and FreeBSD have booths at SCALE this year; booths 211 and 217, respectively. The entrance is near booth 500.

Senior TrueOS developer Ken Moore and iX Technical Documentation Manager Dru Lavigne are attending on behalf of FreeBSD/TrueOS. They will generally be at booth 217, so stop by and say hello!

In addition to the booth, Ken will be giving a presentation: “SysAdm: FreeBSD administration made easy“. The presentation is in Room 101 on Sunday, March 5 from 11:30am to 12:30pm.

To attend SCALE, there is a nominal registration fee of 20$ (10$ for students).

We hope to see you there!
