The Atlanta Linux Showcase was founded in 1996 for the purpose of furthering the use of the Linux operating system in the public and private sectors. We seek to achieve this goal by providing a forum in which to present and discuss technical innovations using Linux and recognize technical excellence in the development of Linux-related computing solutions. In the process, we seek to educate the general public on the use of solutions involving Linux, and promote a sense of community among Linux users and developers.
The community that has formed around the Linux movement is one of its greatest strengths and has allowed Linux to develop in ways that no other operating system can claim. To continue this strong tradition, we sponsor events which serve as gathering points for individuals interested in Linux. We also provide resources to aid groups that work on Linux-oriented community projects.
The Atlanta Linux Showcase, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation consisting of an advisory council composed of 12 Board members including a President, Vice-President, and Treasurer. None of the members receive monetary compensation for the efforts.
Proceeds from the sale of these shirts will be used to further ALS's goals of promoting technical excellence within the Linux Community, and to educate the general public on the use of solutions involving Linux.
