Ontario Linux Fest

This past Saturday I spent the day at the Ontario Linux Fest which was held at the Toronto Congress Centre. Despite this being the inaugural year for the event it was very well organized and I think, well attended. The number I heard was approximately 350 attendees. The most enjoyable aspect of the event was that it had a really nice community feel. Everywhere you looked there were groups of people chatting and having a good time. The only negative thing I can say is that many of the presentations were very high level. Given the broad audience this is not necessarily a bad thing but personally I was hoping for more technical detail. I really hope the organizers are able to this again next year because I’ll definitely be there.

I didn’t have a real camera along so the best I can offer is this picture of Jon ‘maddog’ Hall‘s closing presentation taken with my N800.
