Linux Foundation’s LinuxCon Call For Proposals deadline 4/15

Just a quick reminder that the Linux Foundation‘s new LinuxCon conference Call for Proposals deadline is this Wednesday, 4/15.  I’m on the program committee for this new conference, and we’re absolutely looking for fresh presenters and engaging topics.  The conference is co-located with the Plumbers Conference, so there will be plenty of deep technical people there.  But LinuxCon isn’t just about low-level I-cut-my-teeth-on-Z80-assembly presentations.  We want plenty of higher level system administrator, end user, and business executive relevant topics too.

Please submit your topic ideas ASAP!
