[vox] [fwd] Apress July 2010 Newsletter



Stripped out some Microsoft-related topics; the rest is
probably general enough for our LUG audience...

*** Apress July 2010 Newsletter ***

One thing Mac and Microsoft users had in common in June was 
profuse sweating, whether you were standing outside of the 
convention center at TechEd in New Orleans or waiting in line for
the iPhone 4 in New York City. But there were rewards for those 
who suffered through the heat. TechEd attendees saw the latest 
from Microsoft, with buzz circulating around BI and enterprise 
technologies like SharePoint 2010 and PowerShell. iPhone 4 owners
had some difficulties calling their friends to brag due to the 
infamous reception issue, but you can't complain about the 
thinner design, video chat capabilities, and iOS4 improvements 
like multitasking and folders. On the agenda for this month is 
OSCON, the premier open source convention, returning to Portland,
OR from July 19th to the 23rd. Feel free to stop by the Apress 
booth (#510) and flip through our latest open source and Android 
books.

Conference News and Notes:

OSCON July 19th-23rd

OSCON, the premier open source conference in North America hosted
by O'Reilly, will take place this month, July 19th-23rd in 
Portland, Oregon. The past year has witnessed some big changes in
technology, with Cloud computing and mobile services leading the 
way. Developers must now adapt to rapidly evolving platforms, and
open source is the key to managing these platforms. OSCON will 
feature hundreds of sessions covering open source languages and 
platforms such as Python, Java, Ruby, Perl, PHP and JavaScript. 
If you're a developer, designer, trainer, programmer, sys admin, 
IT manager, hacker, or entrepreneur who is passionate about open 
source, stop by booth # 510 in the Expo Hall to see our latest
