Robin's 2011 conferences plans and ideas

Working on my conference travel plans and wishes for the year. I am downgrading OLS to a maybe, the cost is becoming more of a factor. Likewise, while I had incredible fun at FOSDEM last year, and OSCON in 2006, I cannot justify the airfare/hotel expenses for them. I would like to attend SCALE at some point as well, but uncertain for the same cost reason.

Confirmed:
  • April 11-14, MySQL UC @ Santa Clara, CA, USA [1]
  • August 17-19, LinuxCon 2011 @ Vancouver, BC, Canada [2]
Maybe:
  • June 13-15, Linux Symposium @ Ottawa, ON, Canada.
Would like to go, but out of my financial reach:
  • February 5-6, FOSDEM @ Brussels, Belgium.
  • February 25-27, SCALE 9x @ Los Angeles, CA, USA.
  • July 25-29, OSCON @ Portland, OR
  • (Not yet announced), Linux Plumbers.
Notes
  1. I will be manning the phpMyAdmin booth, like past 5 years.
    I have no accommodation yet, I'd love to split a hotel room at the Hyatt (or another spot within walking distance) with somebody.
  2. Local this year, so no travel costs :-)
