Calling First-Time Speakers to Contribute at LinuxCon

Filed under
Linux

The Linux Foundation produces more than 15 events a year. If you have attended our events over the last few years you would likely have run into many luminaries from the world of Linux. But we don’t want only “known” or “known to us” experts to apply to speak at our events.

This is why we're calling on new speakers to submit a proposal to speak at one of our Linux events. (And if you’ve spoken before you are welcome, too!) Coming up we have LinuxCon and CloudOpen in North America September 16-18 in New Orleans. The CFP for both LinuxCon and CloudOpen closes on June 20th so please get them in now.
