LinuxFest Northwest

The eleventh annual LinuxFest Northwest will happen Saturday and Sunday April 24th and April 25th at Bellingham Technical College.  This is a wonderful, free, event that allows software engineers, network administrators, consultants and business people of all types to network, learn, and (most of all) to feel as if there really is a tech community in Whatcom County.

I went last year (even though I am mostly a Windows and OpenBSD freak) and had a fantastic time.  Linux really does drive development throughout most of the world now. The influence Linux has in the world of security and networking is undeniably powerful. This year, the organizers have added a touch of social networking to the LinuxFest Northwest website.  I am blown away by the Linux users that are traveling from places like Seattle, Portland, and South Okanagan B.C. to make it the the Festival.

BTW, Bellingham Technical College Culinary Arts will handle lunch on Saturday.  Last year it was fantastic. Your $9.00 cash will get you a choice of:

  • Grilled wild Alaskan salmon
  • Tri-tip steak sandwich
  • BBQ St. Louis pork ribs
  • Grilled jumbo vegan Mexican chipotle sausage on a hoagie bun
LinuxFest Northwest!! Don't miss it!
