April is 'Linux & Android month' in San Francisco

If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear your Android and Linux conference badge this April. It’s going to be a busy month over on the US West coast with four developer symposia scheduled.

Given that this four-in-a-row developer-fest all falls within the same month, I think it’s worth a quick blog to bring them all into focus and mention dates, names and links so you can plan for one, all or none.

In no particular order, here goes:

The Linux Collaboration Summit holds its fifth annual get together from April 6 – 8 at Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco, CA. This is an invitation-only summit gathering of core kernel developers, distribution maintainers, ISVs, end users, system vendors and other community organisations.

Also at Hotel Kabuki the following week from April 13 – 14, the Android Builder Summit is described as a technical summit for OEMs, their device manufacturers, integrators, custom builders and the growing Android and Linux Kernel developer communities.

Also in Hotel Kabuki and running right next to the above Android summit is the Embedded Linux Conference from April 11 – 13. This listed as the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products.

Last but not least is SugarCon ’11 held from April 4 -6 at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel. Described as “more than just a CRM conference” (but then they would say that wouldn’t they) – the company says that attendees consist of a mix of customer, developer, partners, community members, and prospects.
