My personal event hat-trick - three big FOSS events in three weeks in three
different countries - is almost finished.
I have little work in Bern, Switzerland to do related to my job, and so i am
in the lucky position to support this event.
After a stormy trip from Stuttgart to Bern - btw. i started 04:00 AM at my
place - i arrived at 07:30 to help Timea, Fabian, Sandro to polish the booth
and start the day. As seen on FOSDEM and CLT the Posters are working fine. We
had a nice little booth.
There was also a install zone where people could bring Hardware to fix
problems or install Linux, and Sandro did a great job to help the people
Frederic from the Frankfurt RedHat Office brought us DVD´s and we switched him
in a Fedora Contributor, put him in a Fedora Shirt and send him to help
Later, Alan arrived and stayed with us almost the whole day, some of his
masterpieces was a strange construct of Powerplugs to match the swiss
electrical sockets maybe someone remember my own Power Plug Adventure ;-) -
another one on the social event, he jailed google in a bottle jail, i am sure
Fabian or Sandro who has taken pictures off it, can tell this story better
The event itself was incredible, the area with exhibitors is larger then
Linuxtag in Germany - and much much people, hope i get some numbers tomorrow.
We had good talks with visitors about our Fedora Project, but - they want to
try it, "maybe" want use it - and are to shy to contribute to it. We gave
away some DVD´s, LiveCD´s, Flyers and Stickers. I am sure, now there are a
lot more people in Bern, Switzerland who know the role off the Fedora
Project - in German there is metapher - constant dropping wears the stone. We
achieved so much in the last weeks - Linux Magazin will bring a illustrated
Story about Fedora EMEA, Robert will give a Podcast about Fedora in the next
Weeks, and i had also a premiere, today was my first official interview with
a guy from the University of Bern - i will keep you informed what happened
with it. The social event - as expected not able to beat CLT ;-) - was nice
and valorized with lightening talks.I am really look forward to the Open Expo
Day 2 - the Community Day.
