Mark and I just got back from a weekend in sunny Bellingham, Washington with the Open Source faithful. There were a good thousand enthusiasts there and we got to talk to a fair number of them. We gave a presentation of the latest Zenoss beta and attended a few ourselves. Lots of great talks like Hacking with Asterisk, MythTV and the BOFs for OpenSUSE and Fedora. Talked to a lot of folks who were using the product or planning to soon, and pointed a few to creative new ways they might want to use Zenoss for monitoring unexpected things. In addition to the presentations, there were many interesting booths and I enjoyed talking with quite a few of them, including the Portland PostgreSQL Users Group and the folks from Untangle. We even gave away a SqueezeBox to Gary in Richland, WA from our drawing. LinuxFest NW was a great community event, and we look forward to coming back next year!
