Texas Linux Fest 2010

Today I had the opportunity to speak at Texas Linux Fest 2010 and meet some Red Hat colleagues…

I presented some ideas I had on how to get involved with open source and be successful with it. It seemed the audience received the presentation well even though I was a bit nervous since this was the first time I did this type of presentation (and I wasn’t talking about Eclipse). Some people have asked for the slides so I posted them on SlideShare.

Also, for the first time that this conference was put on, I think everything went smoothly (good job conference organizers). From my point of view, it was interesting to get exposed to the Linux enthusiast community again, it’s been awhile. I do admit I felt a bit dirty doing my presentation off my MacBook Pro using Keynote in front of an audience of Linux enthusiasts, but hey… Open Office is terrible… I’m a pragmatic open source guy 🙂
