At the end of August in Chicago will be the Linux Foundation's LinuxCon and CloudOpen at the Sheraton Chicago.
This year's North American LinuxCon is taking place in Phoronix's home territory of Chicago, Illinois. The event is running from 20 to 22 August and taking place during LinuxCon is once again the CloudOpen conference concerning Linux and open-source software within open cloud platforms.
Announced today by the Linux Foundation were the keynote speakers and they include representatives of edX, HP, Docker, Open Prosthetics, MakerBot, Local Motors, and the Linux Foundation. Linus Torvalds will also be taking part again in the annual Linux Kernel Panel keynote.

. We generally cover the LinuxCon
conferences on Phoronix and we'll certainly be doing so this year with the event just being a few miles away (well, by August, Phoronix will have likely located to Indiana, but still it's close enough).
