SCALE is about community. We have been since SCALE 1x in 2002. As such, we have a great balance of community and sponsored booths in the Expo Hall. This is a great chance to find groups and individuals who are interested in the same Open Source technology subjects are you are. The community groups typically have monthly meetings, ask them joining their meetings. We also have a number of interesting companies which have helped sponsored SCALE by getting a booth. They maybe providing products, services, hiring, or just doing community outreach. Please schedule some time to visit the booths and network.
