Bellingham’s LinuxFest Northwest offers information about open source software

“This year several of the sessions will include topics about how
to turn a program idea into a business. It’s an opportunity to take
some of the enthusiasm generated at LinuxFest and apply it toward
possible business ventures, said Dennis King, a shareholder of BIG

free tools in the Linux operating system allows for inexpensive
startups. Today entrepreneurs can get things going with just a
computer and an Internet connection, he said.”
