Special Student Attendee Packages for LinuxCon North America 2011

by OSUOSL Admin on Mon, May 16 2011

You may recall from our recent newsletter that the OSL team is organizing a student focused track at the Linux Foundation's upcoming conference, LinuxCon North America 2011. Dubbed Linux Learners Day, these sessions for students will be taught by OSL staff and will focus on fundamentals of Linux, embedded systems and open source community involvement. LinuxCon NA 2011 will take place the week of August 15th in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

Conference registration is now open, and the folks at the Linux Foundation were kind enough to put together several discounted packages for student attendees.
