from the traveling side this trip was horrible - broken car, hotel charged the wrong credit card, navigation system gave us wrong routes on the way back.
FOSDEM itself was better than ever for me, because i could meet so many motivated Fedora Contributors. We started on the Beer-Event, where i had a Cherry-Beer which made me drunk with only one glas.
The Beer-Event is crowded and geeky - you love it or you hate it ;)
First Day, we build up the booth and around 11:00 am visitors started to showing up and we could see right from the beginning that they love our T-Shirts which we gave away for a donation. After a short while it was possible to completely reimburse the trip and accomodation for our hungarian contributor from this donations - so cool! I attended Max's talk about Fedora-Governance, which gave me an impulse to think over how we can reduce governance as much as possible inside the Fedora Project without loosing the scope.
Second Day, much visitors, much booth duties - i could not even write my blog.
I hope we could convince some of them to join the fedoraproject.
I presented my foss.in talk and the Fedora Security Spin to several Fedora People on the booth they gave me very good feedback and i am happy and proud what we achieved together!
I brought 880 F12 DVD/CD with me to FOSDEM - i took not a single one back home with me!!! This means we gave out around 600 DVD/CD's!!! in 1,5 days to the visitors and distributed the rest between the Fedora People.
I brought also around 100 Splatter T-Shirts with me and they are all gone for a donation to Fedora EMEA for Future Events and for handling shipping and producing new stuff.
If you have the chance to attend FOSDEM one day you should do it, there are many strange places to discover ;)
