So many of you have asked how to help Linux Journal continue to be published* for years to come.
First, keep the great ideas coming—we all want to continue making Linux Journal 2.0 something special, and we need this community to do it.
If you're interested in writing for us, we want to hear from you—or even better, here's a chance to meet us in person to discuss the possibilities.
If you're going to SCaLE16x, grab a beer with tech editor Kyle Rankin (@kylerankin) and talk about LJ writing opportunities at 6:30pm tomorrow (March 9, 2018) at The Yardhouse (300 E Colorado Blvd #220, Pasadena).
Linux Journal's special comeback issue features 180+ pages of hard-hitting and in-depth technical articles covering all aspects of the world's most essential operating system and the emerging technologies adjacent to it. Don't miss this highly anticipated issue (released next week)! Subscribe today.
