Linux conference will be held at Microsoft headquarters

The Linux and WSL conference will take place in March 2020 at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington, USA.

The rivalry between the community Linux and the Microsoft something that stretches for decades. Statements from leaders, fans, and users on both sides have long fueled this rivalry. But in recent years, thanks to open-minded people who have realistically put the good of all in front of their egos or utopian ideas. The scene begins to change.


I could spend hours here writing about all the good interactions and partnerships between the Microsoft and the community Linux in the last few years. The relationship between the sides Open and Closed Out of force has been getting better and better lately, which, in my opinion, is the best for everyone. No wonder the phrase Microsoft Loves Linux It's been so used lately.

microsoft-loves-linux At the beginning of this month of September 2019 was announced the WSLconf 1. A conference to be held by the founder of the Pengwin and organized by the community on March 10 and 11, 2020, at Microsoft, in Redmond, Washington, United States of America.

The event will feature lectures, hackathons, presentations, and developer events on the WSL. Already confirmed the presence of the developers of Microsoft responsible for WSL, from the developer team at Canonical responsible for the development of Ubuntu at WSL, and also from the creators of Pengwin.

If you are reading this article near the conference venue and are interested in presenting your product or giving a talk at the event, keep an eye out for newsletters by registering your email on WSLconf official website 1.

The event will be free, but space is limited. Therefore, those interested in participating will need a pre-registration.

What do you think about recent events, and how things are unfolding between the Microsoft and the community Open source in the last few years? In my opinion, this union that has been going on between two sides, once considered rivals, only tends to benefit everyone involved. Not only to leaders and developers, but also to all of us users.
