with an enterprise focus.  Plus, visit the exhibit hall without missing any
class time-exhibit hours are scheduled around the classes, so you won't miss

technology and business nexus.  This event will feature practical, real
world examples of Linux implementations in action, attracting IT
professionals from the Fortune 500 and other organizations bringing Linux
