General Boilerplate Text
The Ohio Linuxfest proudly announces that [Whatever Has Happened]. The 2011 Ohio LinuxFest features three days of classroom training, talks and workshops. This annual event takes place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, September 9 through 11, 2011.
Friday is day of variety. Take personal or professional development classes with the OLF Institute. Get a peek at the main event with the Early Penguins talks. Learn more from UbuCon and Cloud's workshop [I dunno what they're calling it this time yet]. Learn about how Open Source can help health care in our Open Source in Medicine Track. At the end of the day, join Jon "maddog" Hall for a keynote talk about 20 years of Linux, then join us at the pre-party [at $VENUE].
As always, the main schedule is on Saturday. The day kicks off with a keynote from Cathy Malmrose, CEO of ZaReason, followed by five tracks of talks from Free and Open Source experts like [$NAMES TO COME]. The day closes with a special talk from Bradley Kuhn, ED of the Software Freedom Conservancy, and the final Keynote will be Jon "maddog" Hall telling us where the next 20 years of Linux will take us.
