That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way.

February 8, 2008: Women in Open Source Conference
Christina Haralanova | 30 August 2007



The Linux Expo of Southern California is proud to announce their second Women in Open Source Conference. The conference will be held on February 8th, 2008 in conjunction with the 6th Annual So Cal Linux Expo.

Widespread acceptance and participation by the user community has established SCALE as a premiere Open Source conference in the Southwest. 2008 marks the sixth year that SCALE has been engaging and inspiring the open source community. The event is uniquely community-based and attracts a wide variety of sponsors, non-profit groups, user groups, and attendees.

Continuing the efforts to encourage women of all ages to be a part of the free and open source community, the organisers invite women to showcase their work on Free and Open Source projects, to share their accomplishments, success stories, and advancements. Past attendees at this event have included women in technology, teachers, and parents of young girls.
