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.
