Interview: Behind the Scenes at SCALE
The seventh annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) is scheduled to get underway early next month. I caught up with one of the event's organizers, Gareth Greenaway, to find out get the inside scoop on what's new, what's different, and what they've learned from past events.
OStatic: How many people make up the various organizing committees? How do you decide how to divide up responsibilities?
We have the work load divided up among roughly 7 committees, each committee has varying numbers of committee members. At some point early on we decided what committees would be responsible for what task; over the years as the show grows, we've refined the tasks a bit and moved some tasks around. We've also added new committees to better handle various tasks and divide the load. Everyone knows what they have to do to make sure the show goes off without a hitch.
