Today we have a special episode of Linux in the Ham Shack in which your hosts interview two of the volunteer coordinators for the Southern California Linux Expo, Hriday "Bala" Balachandran and Stewart Sheldon. Both of them are amateur radio operators and play key roles in making SCaLE one of the largest and most successful Open Source conferences in the world. We talk with them about their new amateur radio focus for 2016, the conference program, technology and many other topics. It's a lot of fun and highly educational, so don't miss this one.
This episode is a round-table discussion with Dennis (Bear1), Beth Lynn Eicher, Moose, and Rob, all from Ohio LinuxFest.
Moose discusses the OLF programs and the vendor expo. The majority of the conference content is on Friday and Saturday. LPI and BSDA testing will be conducted on Sunday. There will be keynote addresses from Stormy Peters and Christopher "Monty" Montgomery. John "maddog" Hall will give talks on Friday and Saturday. New tracks this year are a medical track and an Ubuntu-specific track (Ubucon).
Rob adds that he's looking forward to seeing the LHS booth at the expo.
Bear reminds us that OLF is a great opportunity to meet many of the people directly involved in the development of the open source products we use every day.
Finally, Beth Lynn points out that other popular open source projects are also represented, like FreeBSD and BeOS. You do not need to know anything about Linux to attend OLF! There is something for everybody, so please register and attend. Students are welcome, too.
Contact Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org, Russ at email@example.com, or both at the same time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Listen to the live stream every other Tuesday at 8:00pm Central time. Check the LHS web site for dates.

In a rare promotional episode of Linux in the Ham Shack, we talk to four folks from the upcoming Ohio Linux Fest. Bear, Rob, Moose and Beth Lynn give our listeners the low down on everything that's going to happen at this year's event. Make no mistake, this time around it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun, even more fun than last year. Linux in the Ham Shack is going to be there, too, with new equipment, new demos and a lot more to make it worth stopping by. So if you're going to be around Columbus, Ohio on September 10-12 or you have some free time and a little bit of extra cash, make sure to come by the show. It's going to be KILLA.
Richard and I have been busy over the last couple of weeks. He spent a day at the Belton Hamfest near Waco, Texas on October 3rd. The weekend before that, I spent a few days in Columbus, Ohio at Ohio Linux Fest. This is our first episode back from those events. I have a few hours of audio I need to sift through, but I managed to get a couple of clips from my interviews and commentary from OLF included in the second segment of this episode of the podcast. Because I had a visit from my parents and my brother and sister-in-law from New Hampshire, I haven't been able to get the podcast out in a timely manner. I suppose after 25 releases, I should probably stop apologizing for being late but I do like it when we release on time. Anyway, enjoy our interviews and Richard's discourse on APRS and Xastir, and stay tuned for a lot of great audio from our live endeavors coming up in future episodes. Thanks for downloading, and have a great couple of weeks.
