Programs for Women Attending LinuxCon & CloudOpen Europe 2013
Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Linux ecosystem, and it is our goal to make sure that everyone and anyone that wants to become a contributor and/or member of the community has the resources to do so, and feels welcome to be a part of the community. To further these goals, we are pleased to offer several events/programs for women attending LinuxCon & CloudOpen this year.
Women in Open Source Networking Breakfast
We'd like to invite all of our women attendees to join each other for a networking breakfast on Tuesday, October 22nd in the Platform 5 Cafe at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre from 8-9:30am. This is a chance for these attendees to connect with each other onsite. We will begin with a brief introduction of each attendee, and then guests will be free to enjoy breakfast and mingle with one another. There is no cost to attend. All attendees must identify as a woman and will need to register to attend. Click here to register.
We want to make sure that everyone who feels like they can both benefit and contribute to LinuxCon/CloudOpen has the chance to be there, even if funds are low. This year, we are encouraging folks that might fall into that category to apply for discounted or waived registration fees so they can join us! Click here for the request form.

- Whiz Kids
- Women in Linux
- SysAdmin Super Stars
- Developer Do-Gooders
- Linux Kernel Gurus
Recipients will be notified early- to mid-August and will be publicly announced shortly thereafter. For more details on the criteria for each category, or to submit an application, please visit the Linux Training Scholarship website.
