Gareth Greenaway, the tallest of the SCALE team running the Southern California Linux Expo, proposes to help out the smallest of the Linux/FOSS users.
How? For the first time ever, the Southern California Linux Expo will host the SCALE Kids Conference on Gareth’s watch, a free and open source event where the community leaders of tomorrow will be able to spotlight their talents and ideas.
According to a recent SCALE release, the goal of the conference is to be as “kid driven” as possible. The event offers a unique opportunity for kids 10 to 16 to see and experience the inner workings of planning, determine the content, and help to steer the direction that the conference will take.
The SCALE Kids Conference will take place on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012 in parallel with the main SCALE 10X conference.
For those parents and kids interested in helping to plan the event, Gareth and the SCALE team (and that includes yours truly) encourage you to join the scale-kids mailing list here.
Don’t forget: SCALE 10X will be held from Jan. 20-22 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport Hotel. Call for papers is open. Mark your calendars.
