Yesterday the Brandenburger Linux-Info-Tag or short BLIT happend. It was the 9th edition of this event and also my ninth one. I always had there talks or mostly workshops about using Inkscape and GIMP, so also in this year. This year was the first year Fedora had also a booth there, Dominic Hopf and Michael Spahn helped me with it. Logistic was really easy, Dominic ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿brought the rollup banner which he took from the FrOSCon and also the rest of the DVD I sent them for the SFD Hamburg and I brought the table cloth and the rest of the DVD I had. Christoph Wickert sent Dominic also a WeeTab and OLPC, because he had a talk about OLPC and Fedora at the event. He also sent some cool Beefy Miracle stickers and pins. So thanks to Christoph we had really enough on the booth as I had also some stickers left. We handed out really lot DVD, my part was after the event gone and Dominic had only a few left, so it was arround 120 DVD, which is a lot for such a “small” event like BLIT. But we had also a lot of conversations on the booth.
After the lunch break I had my 2 Inkscape workshop, which was good filled with arround 15-20 people. Even I had not in booth workshops the same people, so it was a good result. After my workshops was only an hour left of the event and I had to leave as I use always a weekend ticket for travelling to that event, it takes me not longer as travelling with ICE but its cheaper and so we travel as group with the ticket as it allows to take 4 persons with you and I was back home short after half past 11pm. So it was an amazong day trip. I think I will do it next year again.
