Good morning,

My name is Angela Brown and I am with the Linux Foundation here in San

The classes we will be offering this April at the Collaboration Summit
are: Creating Applications for Linux, Essential Linux Device Driver

is an intensive two-day course on April 6 & 7, and the cost is $1099.
Students are automatically accepted to attend the invitation only
Collaboration Summit as well (taking place April 8-10 in the same

I was hoping you would be able to pass this information on to your LUG
members in case they are interested.  Please let me know if you have
any questions.

Thank you in advance.
