Now that I'm home again, let's take a little time to review eLiberatica's last day of sessions and presentations, as well as the freedom party that we had going just after the sessions on Saturday...
At the freedom party, Monty Widenius brought some Salmiakkikossu, a very nice drink with Salmiak and Wodka. It seems to have become a tradition with Monty to bring some booze with him every time he goes somewhere ;-) Thanks Monty!
After the freedom party, a large group of us went out to a club somewhere downtown in Bucharest, where we had a very enjoyable time dancing and socializing until very late at night / early in the morning.
Overall I've met some amazing people and really had a chance to share with them how I feel about Free Software and how I think of it from a business perspective. I think my session on Fedora in the Enterprise last Friday went great, especially since on Saturday, different people came up to me all day long to ask questions and stuff like that.
Saturday, a Werewolf session ended up being a set of 3-minute lightning talks which I hadn't expected, but I enlisted myself for a 3-minute talk on Configuration Management and so I got just a tiny little bit of technical stuff to the audience. Next year, if possible, I'd like -and from what I've heard so would some of the audience at eLiberatica- to see a few more technical sessions as was also suggested in one of the lightning talks that was about OpenSpace (very much like BarCamps).
Also, just before the freedom party, we had taken some group photos after which some of the event's participants wanted to get pictures with some of us! I felt like a movie star or something ;-)
I regret that I've not spent as much time with my fellow Fedorians Nicu, Adrian, Alexandru and Ionut, but the speakers at eLiberatica had arrangements for lunch and dinner and stuff and so I ended up with the very interesting group of speakers after the event rather then socialize with my fellow Fedorians. Most of them will be at FUDCon though, so I'll make sure I get some beers with them there ;-)
Note: Again this post is a little late, but given the travel schedule on Sunday and some obligations this morning I just now have the opportunity to write this up and post it
