Linode sponsors YAPC, fosscon, and SELF

June 10, 2010 8:52 am

Linode is happy to support three conferences being held later this month:

YAPC – The Yet Another Perl Conferences (YAPCs) are grassroots symposia on the Perl programming language promoted by The Perl Foundation, a non-profit corporation dedicated to the advancement of the Perl programming language through open discussion, collaboration, design, and code. We sponsored and attended YAPC last year and it was great to meet some Linode customers face to face. We’ll be in Columbus, Ohio this year from June 21st to June 23rd.

fosscon – The Free and Open Source Software Conference will be held at the Rochester Institute of Technology on June 19th and we’ll be in attendance.

SELF – The Southeast LinuxFest is a community event for anyone who wants to learn more about Linux and Free & Open Source software. We won’t be able to make it to Spartanburg, SC this year, but we’re still sponsoring the conference for the second year in a row.

Come hang out with us if you are attending YAPC or fosscon and maybe even score a rare Linode t-shirt.

  1. Any possibility that some of the money going to sponsorships could go to badly needed disk space instead?

  2. Fantastic that you sponsor these conferences. Makes me even happier that i am a customer.

    Hope you keep on sponsoring these kind of conferences.

  3. I’m also really pleased about your community sponsorship. I note that you guys are also sponsoring DebConf10 – thank you very much for doing that.

    Seeing a company like Linode that is so active in the community makes me feel like I have chosen the right VPS company.

  4. Excellent! I am wearing the Linode T-shirt I got at last year’s YAPC::NA. The performance and ease-of-use of your service has allowed me to do things that would have cost me loads more time, money, and sanity than I could otherwise spare. Linode++
