An interesting new User Group is launching in Austin Tx this spring. Ben Collins provides an introduction over on Linux.com for the "founding meeting" coming up in March 2013. Looking forward to seeing more of what's happening around the broader arena of POWER processors and specifically with Linux.
"The PLUG's founding meeting aims to bring together some of the top companies, developers and users to a common place to see, touch and discuss the future of Power platforms. By bringing together engineers and speakers to discuss what Power Architecture and Linux are doing in this day and age of embedded systems and cloud computing, along with on-site products to enable and dazzle attendees, the goal is about awareness and building community around this famed processor. "
The PowerLinux Users Group (PLUG) should be a great place to network with other participants in the industry... William Mapp is driving some interesting things in this area.
Several of us here in Austin will be participating and learning. I'll post updates, news, and announcements here on the community on a regular basis. If you're in the Austin area, check it out!
