Linuxforum summary

Better late than never, almost a week since it was over, a quick summary of this years Linuxforum Denmark.

I have to say I'm very impressed. With an organisation of volounteers and at a very low cost compared to other conferences (such as OSCON which is definitly a lot higher budget), I think they managed to arrange a fantastic conference.

As a visitor, there were plenty of interesting talk, and this year the english language ones were nicely spread out so there was almost always one available. I don't really do Danish. Reading is fine, but listening to a technical talk - well, it's a bit too much of a challenge. I think the split of a business-oriented day (friday) and a tech day (saturday) is a smart thing to do. So I'll definitly recommend people who are around go go to this conference next year.

As a speaker the arrangement was very nice - not just "here's your room, be done", but all the things around it. I certainly felt very welcome, and I don't think there was a single point not being taken care of.

As for my own talk, I think it got to be a little bit too much in too little time - I should've cut a few more points out of it and been a bit more detailed about the ones left in. But hopefully it wasn't too bad.

So, big thanks to the organisers. And to all the interesting people I got to chat with - hosts and other speakers. A very interesting couple of days.

Oh, and yes, I got stopped in airport security. Not for the powerdrill they gave us (speakers) at the conference (very handy, btw!), but for the speakers badge. And yes, they were in the same bag...
