Another step in our particular Octuber’s tour. Last week we have been in Edinburgh for the LinuxCon Europe 2013. It has been a quite challenging event, with lots of meetings and interesting talks. The main difference with Open World Forum experience has been the technical profile of most of the attendees, so there were less suits and more t-shirts around the venue.
LinuxCon was hosting also the CloudOpen so there were a lot of cloud companies around like OpenStack, Apache CloudStack or CloudSoft. It seems that the cloud is clearly a great place for free / open source software and many companies are working on it, as it shows for example our latest analysis about OpenStack.
