Open webOS going to SCaLE, bringing WebOS Ports along for the ride

Next weekend is going to see another convergence of nerd power in California, with the 11th annual Southern California Linux Expo taking place Friday through Sunday in Los Angeles. Normally we wouldn't pay attention to such things, as we aren't as neckbeardy here at webOS Nation as they are over at Android Central, but it turns out our friends from HP/Gram running the Open webOS project are going to be heading from Sunnyvale to the LAX Hilton to show off their latest.

While SCaLE 11x? Because Open webOS runs of the Linux Standard Kernel, that's why. Roy Sutton of the developer relations team will be on hand at the Open webOS booth to demo Open webOS (perhaps like the Samsung Series 7 Slate?), and will be co-presenting with Tom King, chief of WebOS Ports. The two will be pairing up for two presentations: "Open Source Community Relations" and "From Closed to Open: The Open webOS Story".

The Open webOS and Enyo teams have been hitting conferences big and small around the globe to push the message of webOS. When it comes to Linux confabs, though, it doesn't really get much bigger than SCaLE. And considering how much HP's given to Linux, it's clear they take this Linux thing seriously.

The first read through I saw "nerdbeardy" instead of "neckbeardy" and I'm still not sure which is most appropriate. ...carry on.

webOS Ports/Internals had a booth @ SCaLE *last* year...so I hardly think we are "along for the ride". We have one as well this year...stop on by if you are there. If you happen to be in the area come on in and see the show.

I ain't driving there... Gas is too expensive

Can someone set up a booth cam?

Hey there's Dave giving another schpiel about some fancy new prototype beta alpha kind he's been working on for the last few weeks but hasn't had enough time to finish! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Linux-based operating system requires and system Integration or SI of software projects using a package manager so I believe that they are just doing for the sake of spreading awareness among the people.
