A Seat at the Big Kids’ Table at Ohio LinuxFest

Ohio LinuxFest isn’t just another excuse to travel. It’s a means for us to fulfill ourselves, and to get honest, tangible feedback for what we do and for what others are doing. It’s a place where ideas are sounded, bent, crumpled and turned until they either come out of the crucible perfect…or useless. That’s what our gatherings are about.

This next generation will cure diabetes; they will make cancer an inconvenience and not a death sentence. Read more
