TXOSS 2008

The Texas Open Source Symposium in San Angelo is a wrap. This was a small one day event in San Angelo organized by Jeremy Fluhmann (who did an excellent job by the way). I rather enjoyed it, and providing that it becomes an annual event (which I understand is the idea), I will certainly try and make it back next year.

I gave a talk on Mercurial during the 11:00am slot. I'm not convinced that I did a very good job, but most of the people seated in the audience seemed to be paying attention and several people asked questions both during and after, so maybe it was alright.

The talks I attended were of excellent quality, I especially enjoyed both of the talks given by Patrick Michaud on Parrot and Perl6 (even if they did pretty much convince me that my shift in focus to Python was a Good Idea :).
