Bill Malchisky February 18 2017 04:54:59 PMHi Everyone!
Just a quick update on Linuxfest... As I've been involved since Lotusphere 2010 offering the first two Linux Installfests with Joe Litton, and co-offered Linuxfest at Lotusphere, Connect, and ConnectED ever since, I wanted to take a moment and provide a quick update.
Wes Morgan and I had a few conversations on this year's event and the new city. We both concluded with the new development schedule within IBM, the we should skip a year. Thus, Linuxfest VIII will be delayed a year (presuming there is a conference in some capacity in 2018). We wanted to see a few more feature packs be released and gain more clarity around new offerings and operating system environment decisions over 2017.
Rest assured, Linux remains a strategic OS for IBM and they are committed to it for their software deployments. From here, let's see what 2017 brings and we'll have plenty to discuss in 2018. In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to ask below as a comment, join our ICS Linux Skype Chat, or attend MWLUG in Washington, D.C. in August 2017 as I will be offering a regional Linuxfest there at Richard Moy's request!
Have a great year!
