The Linux Foundation's LinuxCon North America event is happening this week in Chicago.

Along with the Linux Kernel Developers Summit and other Linux Foundation events, LinuxCon NA is the primary event taking place later this week at the Sheraton Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.

If there's any Phoronix readers wishing to meet up during LinuxCon North America, let me know as well, though I'm not sure of my schedule for the week with now living in Indiana rather than Chicago and taking the train in each day for the event.
