Utah Open Source Conference
07 September 2007 21:55

Today I was able to attend some of the Utah Open Source Conference. Overall my impression of the conference was very positive. I think the organizers have done an excellent job for their first year. I won't be able to attend all of the conference, but I very much enjoyed the time I was there.

I gave a presentation in the afternoon on the Relational Model (slides from my presentation). It was sparsely attended, but seemed to go well. I was rather nervous going into the presentation, but once I got going things went smoothly, and I felt like I did a pretty good job. Looking at Phil Windley's slides I think I need to add more pictures to my slides.

Presenting was a good experience, and I think I'll try again next year, perhaps presenting on automating data centers with CFEngine, or Puppet.
