About the Show

This info comes directly from the site itself http://www.floridalinuxshow.com/

This year (2009) the Florida Linux Show is going to be held in two locations. The March 9th, 2009 show will be held in Jacksonville at the University of North Florida University Center. The second show Octber 26th, 2009 will be held in Orlando (currently negotiating the between two locations, to be announced as soon as possible).

The Florida Linux Show is specifically for the 2nd largest number of Linux SIGs in the United States. Since Florida has a large number of national ISPs, Fortune 1000 companies, and a large Internet and technology presence in the United States Linux community, it is only fitting that this state has its own Linux Conferences dedicated to serve this unique group of information technology professionals. In addition to Linux user groups, the Open Source community in Florida is also well represented in the state and extremely active.

The Florida Linux Show allows Linux administrator, users, and the open source community, along with other commercial technology stakeholders to meet and exchange information about needed technology skills, current and future job or project opportunities, new and evolving technologies, trends and qualifying market directions, and the Internet infrastructure that affects all users and hardware and software administrators, to include, ISPs, state and local government entities, large, medium, and small businesses, and non-profit groups and associations.

The Florida Linux Show (Jacksonville & Orlando) is both an exhibition and a conference that serves the needs of the Florida Linux and Open Source Communities and associated integrated technology developers and users.

A portion of the show also welcomes the Macintosh & Windows user communities to share ideas and information that help each part of the Florida Information Technology industry to meet and network (no pun intended) with each other.
