Ontario Linux Fest 2009 was this past saturday in Toronto. The event was a great success, many peoples were present. The Fedora booth was a really busy place with many participants asking informations about the project, the next version and playing with the 3 OLPC laptops that Karlie gave us. By the way, seeing Karlie talk about the OLPC project is a sure way to interest peoples, the enthusiasm she deliver is contagious. I am glad to have meet her in person.
All in all, it was a fun weekend. It was a good chance to meet peoples involved in the free software community and have some great talks with them.
Oh, and if you see Mel Chua, ask her about putting a temporary Fedora tattoo on her forehead ;)
The JIT 2009 is over. The event was taking place yesterday on the Laval University campus. I think the event was a great success for everyone.
I would like to take some time to thank everyone that worked very hard to make an event of this size possible.
I leave with some photos of the event, more to come in the next few days. See you next year for JIT 2010!
