The Southern California Linux Expo (“SCALE”) is sponsored by the Linux Expo of Southern California Inc.
SCALE's mission is to provide educational opportunities on the topic of Open Source software. Open Source software is any software that meets the litmus test of the OSI (Open Source Initiative). Examples of OSS are GNU/Linux and the various BSD operating systems, and applications such as LibreOffice and Firefox.
Our target audiences are both current and potential users of OSS*. Those users can be individual computer users, educational institutions, or businesses.
The Expo's educational focus is composed of (but not limited to) technical seminars and booths where, among other things, both commercial software and hardware vendors, and local non-profit groups (for example, Linux Users Groups), participate in product display, and software demonstrations and tutorials, respectively.
We are vendor and distribution neutral in our outreach efforts.
