Events

CentOS participates in numerous events around the world. If you're running, or participating in, an event where you'd like to have some kind of a CentOS presence, please get in touch with the Promotion SIG to explore options.

Recent Events

Since the last edition of the newsletter, we've participated in the following events.

ISC-HPC Frankfurt

ISC-HPC Frankfurt is the annual European supercomputing event, held in Frankfurt, Germany. CentOS had a presence there in June, in conjunction with the Red Hat booth. The highlight of that event is always the Student Cluster Competition (SCC), where students from around the world compete to build a supercomputer, within a 3kw power limitation, and compete on a variety of benchmarks and applications.

You can see more about the event on the conference website, and read Rich's comments from the SCC.

Upcoming Events

We have a number of events planned for the rest of this year, and we'd love to see you at an event near you.

August 4-5, Bengaluru, India, Devconf.in

Devconf.in is a conference in India, modeled after Devconf.cz. We are currently looking into having a small booth presence there, and should have more information soon. Follow us on Twitter to find out as soon as we know more.

August 16-19th, Boston, USA: Devconf.us and Dojo

Devconf.us is a new event, modeled after Devconf.cz. CentOS will be participating in two capacities.

On the 16th, we will be hosting a CentOS Dojo at Boston University. The schedule has now been published, and registration is open. The event is free, but as we have limited space, we need you to register, for planning purposes.

On the 17th through the 19th, the main Devconf.us event will also be at Boston University. The schedule is expected to be posted today - July 2nd. CentOS will have a table in the community expo hall, and we're looking for volunteers to staff that table.

Hope to see you in Boston!

October 12-13, Columbus, USA: Ohio Linuxfest

CentOS will be sponsoring Ohio Linuxfest this year, and we're looking for volunteers to help staff the booth. More details are available in the CentOS wiki, and more detail will be provided as we get closer to the event.

October 18th, 19th, Meyrin Switzerland: Dojo at CERN

On October 18th, we will be hosting a Dojo at CERN. The call for papers is open, and we'll be publishing a schedule in August.

February 1, 2019, Brussels, Belgium: FOSDEM

It seems like a long way off, but it will be here before you know it. As usual, we'll be hosting a CentOS Dojo on the day before FOSDEM. Details will begin appearing soon on the event wiki page.

Recommending Events

If you know of events where CentOS should have a presence, and currently doesn't, please get in touch with the Promotion SIG to let us know about the event, and what kind of participation we should have. Thanks!
