FOSDEM 2009 - Day One

The morning has come. We get on a bus that was constantly filling up with geeks and nerds (oh yeah!) and at about 10am we were at ULB where FOSDEM is held.

The Fedora Booth was almost already ready by the ambassadors that woke up early (and had the setup slot time) and with the addition of the swag we brought the booth was ready to rocking!

As the time proceeded and more XO laptops where added to our booth, more people where asking what where those and on what OS the run. The profound answer (Fedora) was the begging of sometimes a long conversation about the pros of Fedora and so on.

Those OLPC's where a hit!

My morning booth slot was nearly at end when I was preparing for the RPM Packaging Talk by Christoph Wickert. Our Talk room has so crowded when I found it (it was like hidden!) that I had to sit on the floor! Christoph gave us amazing tips about packaging which hopefully I will use real soon...

Right after Chitlesh Goorah gave a really inspiring talk about who he handles the whole Fedora Electronic Lab Project and I started thinking about a similar handling of an Art & Studio spin of Fedora, something that we later discussed with Chitlesh (between two beers :) )

The rest of the day was booth time for me with some brakes to snap some swag here and there.

After a long (but super-happy!) day at FOSDEM we went back at the hostel and then went out with the whole Fedora team for some good Belgian beer (like Kwak!)

Some nice photos added at this set.
