You can also…(drumroll)… ENTER TO WIN A DRONE! We will be auctioning off 3 drones throughout the conference. All you have to do to enter is tweet any technical question you have for the masterminds at Linux Academy to answer on our #AskLinuxAcademy show.
Not to mention, we will have a rockstar at our booth.. None other than our magnificent course author, Amy Marrich! Amy will be a speaker for the Women of Open Source Networking & Mentoring Session. Catch her there on Monday from 3:30 – 5:30 pm, or the rest of the conference hanging out with the Linux Academy crew at our booth. Note that a limited amount of autographs will be given, so get there early!
