Thanks to Bill Malchisky, LinuxFest V is back at IBM Connect 2014. It will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM at the Dolphin - Oceanic 2. Though it is not an official session, this is one of the sessions that I have always attended at Lotusphere/IBM Connect in the past. There is no marketing BS, all technical knowledge from some of the best Linux experts in the IBM Community. And they tell you like it is.
As a software architect, designer, and developer, it is very important that you understand the operating system that your application is running on from the perspective of resources and security. This determines how you approach the design and architecture of your application. Linux has become a significant part of the IBM Collaboration environment and its importance has been growing especially if you are looking at cloud-based solutions. As a company, almost all our servers are on Linux and with a few desktops. Even if you are running a Windows shop, you should attend this session.
So if you are an administrator or developer and attending IBM Connect 2014 you should attend this unofficial session at IBM Connect. Special thanks to Red Hat for sponsoring. For more information about this session go to Bill's blog:
