The Utah Open Source Conference 2010 was pretty fun. It was really my first open source conference. Yes, I have been into open source for 10 years, specifically FreeBSD, but somehow I haven’t really attended the conferences.
I will probably attend conferences more often.
What was there about FreeBSD?
There was a great presentation on FreebSD Jails given by Chris Edwards. (http://www.utosc.com/presentation/157/) Supposedly they are going to post a recording of the presentation. Until then, check it here: (http://wiki.zelut.org/doku.php/presentations:freebsd-jails)
Who else was there?
So Novell SUSE brought some nice laptop bags, and they were pretty good. I have a nice Ogio laptop back pack, so I am giving this laptop bag to my wife. It is just big enough to fit her 17″ HP laptop.
There was Fedora, Ubuntu, KDE, and GNOME. There was a boot on XDMC and MythTV.
There was a very cool company there called Fusion-IO. They have an awesome hard drive, though they are not cheap. 7k for the cheapest drive. But for some companies, it would be worth it.
When is the next Conference?
