Fedora is returning to the annual Southern California Linux Expo!

What, When, and Where?

Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) is a yearly Linux, free software, and open source conference that takes place in Pasadena, California. Find out more about this event at: [1]

SCaLE 15X – the 15th year of the Southern California Linux Expo – takes place on Mar. 2-5, 2017, at the Pasadena Convention Center


Full event registration covers booth exhibitors, including Fedora volunteers.


Fedora traditionally has a handful of speakers at the event. If you'd like to give a talk, the Call For Papers is July 2 - Nov 15, 2016.

Clint Savage Linch-Pin


The exhibition hall has traditionally been open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

bex: I believe that OSAS from Red Hat will be exhibiting here as well. Should we work with them to increase our booth presence through cross-promotion? What are the planned booth activities and points of emphasis? We were able to get a monitor in the booth and show off modularity at LinuxCon in Berlin and that seemed to draw some traffic (I'd check with jeischma and crew). Putting this here as I don't see who the event owner is on this wiki. I can join a meeting to expand on this and serve as an OSAS liaison.
