Collaboration Summit Keynotes Available Online
If you weren't able to score an invite to last month's Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, or just didn't have the time to go, you don't have to miss out on the high points.
The Linux Foundation describes its annual Collaboration Summit as a "gathering of the brightest minds in Linux, designed to accelerate collaboration and problem solving." The three-day gathering includes a variety of panels, workgroups, and presentations on subjects ranging from cloud computing to legal issues to mobile platforms.
Also among the events are a selection of keynote addresses from high-profile figures in the Linux world. Past speakers have included executives from IBM, Intel, Oracle, MySQL, Nokia, and others, as well as from the Linux Foundation itself. This year, the Foundation extended the Summit's audience by streaming the first day's sessions live via its still-in-beta streaming service.
Of course, not everyone can take the day off to tune in, no matter how thrilling the sessions might be. The Foundation is offering a second chance to catch the Summit's highlights, in the form of selected keynote addresses and panel presentations. Included are:
- State of the Linux Union
- 10+ Years of Linux at IBM
- Does Open Source Mean Open Cloud?
- The Linux Kernel: What's Next
- Why Your Life Might Depend on Your Code
A full listing is available from the Collaboration Summit section of the Foundation's video library — videos from a number of other events are also available. Presentation slides are also available, for those looking to follow along.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
