What it's like at a LinuxCon? Join me in a virtual walk about the North America LinuxCon 2013 in New Orleans. Credit for all the photographs goes to The Linux Foundation, whose photographers are far better than my out of focus efforts.
Let's start with the keynote where Valve CEO Gabe Newell, said that proprietary software and closed platforms are gaming's past and that its future is open and on Linux.
Here are some other stories from the show:
- Ubuntu on Windows Azure gets Juju DevOps
- Quasar IV Cipherphone: The smartphone with encryption built in
- Who writes Linux? Almost 10,000 developers
- IBM and Linux: The next billion dollars
LinuxCon itself was held in the luxury Hyatt Regency New Orleans hotel.
Some people have this idea in their head that Linux people are all young, white males hanging out in mom's basement. As you can see from this shot, the Linux pros who come to LinuxCon are of all ages, races and sexes.
