I don’t waste my time thinking, “Am I doing it right?” I ask, “Am I doing it?”

Women in Open Source Mini-conference
Christina Haralanova | 24 January 2007


The Southern California Linux Expo announces plans to a ’Women In Open Source’ Mini-conference. The goals of the conference are to encourage women to use technology and open source and free software, and to explore the obstacles that women face in breaking into the technology industry. The audience will be those women who may have an interest in technology, but hesitate to get into it because they believe it’s a male-only club. The conference will be held in conjunction with the Fifth Annual So Cal Linux Expo, at the Westin LAX Hotel. The ’Women in Open Source’ mini-conference will be held February 9th.


The Southern California Linux Expo is the premier grass roots Linux and Open Source Software conference in the United States. SCALE 5x, their fifth annual event, will be held on February 10th and 11th, 2007 at the Los Angeles Airport Westin hotel. SCALE will include seminars by leaders from the open source community, tutorials for beginners, and an exhibit hall with both vendor booths and non-commercial booths.

Linux Expo of Southern California, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose members are currently comprised of, but not limited to, members of the SCLUG, USCLUG, and UCLALUGs.
