Ohio Linuxfest A Success!

Filed under
Linux

If you didn't make it to the Ohio Linuxfest this past weekend you missed a great time. With speakers like John "Maddog" Hall, Jeff Waugh and Chris DiBona not to mention vendors like Novell, IBM, RedHat, and Sun, there was a something for everyone at Ohio Linuxfest this year.

I (Aaron) was there with a booth right next to The Linux Link Tech Show guys. I got to meet so many people from the Open Source community and everyone was interested in the show. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello and find out about the show!

Attendance was up this year by about 33% with about 1050 people there for the one day event. The doors opened at 8:00am with the keynote address starting at 9:00am. Thanks to the help of a lot of great volunteers check in was a snap and everyone was able to get right to the booths.

Full Story.
