Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) Coverage

  • Cory Doctorow on influencing the future instead of predicting it

    Cory Doctorow is good with words. He just prefers stringing them into sentences, not subroutines.

    "I was a software developer," he says. "I'm much better at writing science fiction novels. Like, seriously."

    When Doctorow takes the stage at the 14th annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE 14x) this week, he'll demonstrate exactly why he's decided to ply his considerable talents to prose, not code. Doctorow's talk, "No Matter Who's Winning the War on General Purpose Computing, You're Losing," starts at 9 a.m. PST in the Pasadena Convention Center on Friday.

  • Linux conference season 2016 kicks off with SCaLE and FOSDEM

    Two-Thousand and Sixteen is well underway and the first major Linux conferences of the year are upon us!

    In fact, as I type this, I am washing my final load of laundry as I pack to fly down to the Southern California Linux Expo. SCaLE will take place January 21st through 24th in sunny Pasadena, California (side note: it is currently raining and cold where I’m at. Because I don’t live in Pasadena, California.).

    And I absolutely hate flying. Very little can get me to step foot within one of those frozen, metal tubes of death. But a good Linux festival can. And SCaLE is extraordinarily good. Thousands of Linux and Free Software nerds with four days of amazing sessions and some truly spectacular evening entertainment.

  • Wayland improvements since Plasma 5.8 release
    Two weeks have passed since the Plasma 5.8 release and our Wayland efforts have seen quite some improvements.

  • Wayland For KDE Plasma 5.9 Should Shape Up Quite Nicely
    Plasma 5.8 was only released at the beginning of October but already there has been a number of Wayland improvements queuing up for the next milestone, Plasma 5.9. KWin maintainer Martin Gräßlin wrote a blog post yesterday about some of the early Wayland changes coming for Plasma 5.9. Some of this early work for the next KDE Plasma 5 release includes resize-only borders, global shortcut handling, support for keyboard LEDs via libinput, relative pointer support, the color scheme syncing to the window decoration, window icon improvements, multi-screen improvements, panel imporvements, and more.
