The FOSDEM report

It’s about time I penned about FOSDEM ‘09. It’s been some years since I last attended FOSDEM, but I’m glad we made it, even though we could only go for one day.

Bdale Garbee’s keynote was entertaining, but I actually wanted to see the Augeas talk as I want to start using Augeas in my Puppet setup. Raphaël Pinson did a good job in his introductory talk.

I also wanted to attend Remko and stpeter’s talk on XMPP as well as Dave Cridland’s XMPP talk.

All in all, FOSDEM hasn’t changed much: it’s an interesting conference, but most of all it’s a way to meet up again with the people you don’t always get to see in real life anymore…
