Flocking together at SCALE 12X
They say “birds of a feather flock together.” And from that saying comes the terms “Birds of a Feather” meetup at various Linux/FOSS shows. BoFs are places where folks with the same interest get together and talk about them, and certainly it’s a place to exchange ideas and informally discuss their shared interest without a pre-designated agenda.
A shared interest like Korora, for example.
Korora, which doesn’t have a booth at SCALE 12X (at least not this year), will be having a Birds of a Feather, scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m., -8 from GMT. That last part is to help everyone calculate the time at which the event takes place, in case you want to join. I’ve invited Korora founder and lead developer Chris Smart, and co-lead developer Ian Firns doesn’t know it yet (until now), but he’ll be getting an invite, too, to use the magic of a Google Hangout to join us from Australia on Chris’ and Ian’s Sunday.
The BoF will introduce folks to Korora and, with the developers on-hand (hopefully), we can get an in-depth look at the distro. I will have live CDs burned for those who want to give it a shot, as well as my collection of live USB sticks with each desktop flavor (no, you can’t keep it, but I’ll let you run Korora with it, if need be).
So if you’re going to SCALE 12X, feel free to stop in at the Korora Birds of a Feather meetup.
That’s all the news for now. See you next week, if not sooner.
