I am back from FrOSCon now, so time to blog about. This year, it was my sixt visit to the event I didnt arrive on friday. I got the car (still broken) back from the garage on friday evening so it was better to drive over night and arrive on saturday morning. Actually that was a good choice, I needed only 6hrs to drive the distance.
The saturday was like all the other years for me, meeting old friends and a lot of conversation, not only on the day also in the evening. The social event on FrOSCon is always a barbecue and so far I can remember the organizers had only one time bad luck with the weather, the weather was also good this year to enjoy it.
But hot weather means also for the projects, that they have to sweat in the building. And this year the organizers had a great idea, they hired an caterer who managed it to prepare the sausages in the room. That was great more heath and “delicious odor”. This year Fedora got a place for the booth who was not so nice. Only one table and a bar table and not so lot of space. But we managed it. I also managed to give Hendi the GNOME banner I prepared for FrOSCamp last year, I dont need really a GNOME banner but he can use it very well.
On sunday was also prepared a Fedora event in one of the rooms, the FrOSCon give to the propjects they ask for it. I dont know if it was good visited or not, because I had the whole day some workshops to give. I think the workshops was good. First the organizers had in advance some problems to get participants. There are holidays now and most of the kids are on vacation with there parents, but on the end I had 10 participants each workshops. What I have to say is enough when the workshop is for kids. So I think they had a lot of fun and of course all manged to draw what we liked to draw. I think I should propose next year at the FrogLabs workshops again.
