Shawn Powers at Penguicon
This weekend, April 18-20, I'll be in Troy, Michigan for the 6th annual Penguicon convention. The Penguicon is an interesting convention, because it's both a Science Fiction convention, and a Linux convention. It's also interesting, because I've never been to a convention of any sort, so I have no idea what to expect.
Here's the deal:
I'll have a video camera, and I'll be recording tons of stuff. If you're interesting enough, cool enough, or like, bring me coffee or something -- you have a distinct likelihood of being featured in some way on the Linux Journal site.
Also, try to find me, because I'm giving out some cool Linux Journal SWAG too.
Hopefully I'll see you there!

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
