Fedora is returning to the annual Southern California Linux Expo!
What, When, and Where?
Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) is a yearly Linux, free software, and open source conference that takes place in Pasadena, California. Find out more about this event at: 
SCaLE 15X – the 15th year of the Southern California Linux Expo – takes place on Mar. 2-5, 2017, at the Pasadena Convention Center
Full event registration covers booth exhibitors, including Fedora volunteers.
Fedora traditionally has a handful of speakers at the event. If you'd like to give a talk, the Call For Papers is July 2 - Nov 15, 2016.
Speakers, add your name, topic, and link here:
|Date and Time||Location||Speaker||Topic||Link|
|Sun, Mar 5, 11:30-12:30||Ballroom A||Clint Savage||Linch-Pin||https://github.com/CentOS-PaaS-SIG/linch-pin/blob/master/presentations/introducing-linch-pin.pdf|
|Fri, Mar 3, 10:00A-12:00P||Ballroom C||Perry Rivera/Alex Acosta||Fedora 25 Highlights, How You Can Help Fedora, Work Session and General Meetup||Highlights, Contributing, Work Session|
The exhibition hall has traditionally been open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
bex: I believe that OSAS from Red Hat will be exhibiting here as well. Should we work with them to increase our booth presence through cross-promotion? What are the planned booth activities and points of emphasis? We were able to get a monitor in the booth and show off modularity at LinuxCon in Berlin and that seemed to draw some traffic (I'd check with jeischma and crew). Putting this here as I don't see who the event owner is on this wiki. I can join a meeting to expand on this and serve as an OSAS liaison.
