Just got back from Linux Foundation's LinuxCon2012 (Aug 29-31) in San Diego.
Some great sessions and the slides were made public. It was a powerful reminder of the immense possibilities of open source and who are some of the companies running Linux in their enterprise.
See Linux Foundation's site for some of the brilliant presentations. One of my personal favourites was the fact that SpaceX's shuttle is running on linux.
Lots of great ideas in hand, stay tuned for some fresh projects!
