With a little over two weeks left before the first-of-the-year Linux expo, the ninth annual Southern California Linux Expo is shaping up to set the tone for an outstanding Linux year in 2011.

LOS ANGELES – With a little over two weeks left before the first-of-the-year Linux expo, the ninth annual Southern California Linux Expo is shaping up to set the tone for an outstanding Linux year in 2011.

If you haven’t taken advantage of SCALE’s hotel deal at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport hotel – the site of SCALE 9X on Feb. 25-27 – you’d be well advised to hurry. The $109 per night rate is available as long as allotted rooms last. SCALE attendees can take advantage of this deal by using the code at http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale9x/hotel-info when registering either on-line or by phone.

Also, the Open Source Software In Eduction (OSSIE) track at SCALE, providing an outstanding lineup of speakers connecting FOSS and its use in the scholastic realm, has been finalized.

Unlike in years past when OSSIE was held on Friday, this year OSSIE will be held on Saturday so educators may attend without missing classes.

The OSSIE schedule for Saturday's sessions can be found at https://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale9x/special-events/open-source-software-education and tickets for OSSIE, which includes admission to the Exhibit Hall, are $15.

Students and teachers are eligible for a 50 percent discount on the SCALE 9X Full Access Pass – which will allow you to attend other sessions and visit the Exhibit Hall -- by using the STDNT promotional code when purchasing their ticket. If you’re an educator or student attending SCALE and using this promotion, don’t forget to bring a valid school ID with you and present it at SCALE check-in.

To attend OSSIE or to purchase one of two other ticket plans, register on the website at https://www.socallinuxexpo.org/reg7/

SCALE 9X will be held on Feb. 25-27 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport hotel. For more information and to register, visit http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/SCALE9x/
