This week, Dell will be out "in force" at the Red Hat Summit in Boston. If you're attending the show, be sure to stop by the Dell booth in the expo area, where we'll have one of our new PowerEdge M1000e modular blade enclosures on hand, as well as a Precision M6300 mobile workstation (coincidentally sold with Red Hat Enterprise Linux installed). We'll be giving away green bags, so come take a look at what we've got.
Thursday will be a busy day. During lunch, we will be offering a "Lunch-n-Learn" session, where you can talk to Dell engineers like myself, and ask us anything you like about Dell & Linux. At 4pm, Robert Hentosh and Peter Lillian present Get IT Faster, Run IT Better, Grow IT Smarter, focusing on Dell's High Performance Compute Cluster and High Availability solutions built with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Also at 4pm, I'll be presenting Getting the Bits Out: Fedora Mirror Manager in the Open Source Software track. Of course, this would have to conflict with Fedora user and Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst who is speaking in the FUDCon area at the same time. Such is my luck.
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, I'll be involved in the Fedora User and Developer Conference. With over 150 people lined up (and you're welcome to come even if you haven't pre-registered), it should be the largest US-based FUDCon ever. There will be a lot of work hammering out ideas and features for Fedora 10 and beyond, but it's always a good time. There may even be some last-minute campaigning by the good candidates for the Fedora Project Board (be sure to vote!). Just beware the ninjas!
I hope to see you there.
