AlmaLinux OS Foundation Chair To Be a Guest of Honor at Penguicon 2024

FORT MYERS, FLA., USA, April 22, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The AlmaLinux OS Foundation, a nonprofit that stewards AlmaLinux, the free and community-governed open source enterprise Linux distribution, today announced that board chair benny Vasquez is slated to be a guest of honor at Penguicon 2024.

“Penguicon was instrumental in kindling my love of Linux and open source, and I’m humbled to be asked to attend as a guest of honor this year,” Vasquez said. “Being entirely community run and managed, this event taught me the importance of giving of yourself to something you believe in, and that is absolutely the open source way.”

Scheduled to speak at 11 a.m. on April 27th at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest hotel, in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Vasquez will present her session titled, “AlmaLinux is Free: building without following Red Hat Enterprise Linux.” Detailed session information is available at https://2024.penguicon.org/schedule/

“As a leader, I take every chance I can get to give a platform to amazing women in technology,” said Bagel Garrison, ConChair, Penguicon 2024. “Re-focusing the technology track on our roots of open source and unique creation, and finding benny as the chair for AlmaLinux, meant that it was an obvious and immediate fit for our event. I’m so excited to have teamed up with benny and the AlmaLinux OS Foundation.”

Entering its 21st year and boasting a regular attendance of nearly 1,000 attendees, Penguicon is a three-day event where attendees all learn from each other about hacking, building sci-fi universes, soldering, painting miniatures, gaming, coding, music, incredible costumes, and more. Their two pillars are Science Fiction and Open Source, but they also cover as many diverse interests as possible. AlmaLinux representatives will be available to discuss the foundation’s latest updates.

“Finding such a globally-impactful open source project with roots in Michigan made both benny and AlmaLinux a perfect fit for our event,” said Hussein Farran, leader of the technical content at Penguicon. “We have been working hard to serve our attendees the open source and technology content they are looking for, and AlmaLinux OS represents the best parts of open source, both as a community-powered non-profit and as a “free-as-in-beer” and as in “free-as-in-freedom.”
