The Linux Foundation made public the list of events it will organize this 2012, and according to it LinuxCon North America will take place in San Diego, California, between the 29th and 31st of August, and LinuxCon Europe will take place in Barcelona, between the 5th and 7th of November. In 2011 these events took place in Vancouver and Prague respectively. LinuxCon Japan 2012 will take place in Yokohama, just like in 2011.

In San Diego, LinuxCon North America will run alongside the Linux Plumbers Conference and exclusive Linux Kernel Summit. The Linux Foundation explained that by running all these events in the same location, the brightest minds in the Linux world will have the chance to get together under one roof and focus on advancing the Linux platform.

In Barcelona, LinuxCon Europe will run alongside the Embedded Linux Conference Europe and KVM Forum. In its 7th year, the Embedded Linux Conference Europe has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers. Held in Prague last year, LinuxCon Europe debuted to a sold out crowd.

Alongside the event schedule for 2012, The Linux Foundation also announced the onsite Linux training schedule, an annual event-specific Linux training schedule to help attendees maximize their educational experiences onsite. The courses will give attendees hands on experience and the advanced technical skills one needs to make have a successful career nowadays.

“The Linux Foundation’s 2012 event lineup and onsite Linux training schedule are designed to facilitate face-to-face collaboration among the community’s best and brightest. These neutral forums help advance the most pressing opportunities for Linux and bring to bear the highest quality technical content. We’re especially excited about the trifecta of events taking place in San Diego. This area is a hotbed for software development and embedded design,” explained Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation, nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.
