The last weekend the 7th edition of FrOSCon happend, and I was there for manning the Fedora booth, organizing the Fedora track and give an Inkscape workshop. For the Fedora booth was not so nice that we was to few people, especially we had also the DevRoom with an track about packaging. Nevertheless we handed out app. 200 DVD and had still a lot of conversations.
For the DevRoom, I think it was a good idea to do it with other distributions together. We should do that maybe next year again. We had app. between 15- 20 participants in the talks and workshops. More is I think only possible if we market it better and for that we should next time the program have earlier. On the Satruday evening ther was the famous Social Event the barbecue in the yard of the university. And there was a “Spherical Cow” spotted!
So we had a lot of this, what they call beer there and of course some sausages and steaks and conversations. On Sunday it was harder for Sven Lankes and Michael Spahn, because the had to handle the booth mostly alone as I had my workshop on that day. But we still managed everything. And after an horrible trip home I am back now, and can get back to work now.
P.S. we had a little collegue at our booth and he got in a mysterious way missed in the night from Saturday to Sunday. If you see the little Tux, just give notice, his owner misses him really.
