Debating on attending this - it's only 4 hours away, Pretty much a "lone
wolf" Ubuntu user, but if there's some LO activity there, that would be a
big plus. They do need some speakers; Feb 7 is the deadline:
Can't say I know enough about the depths of OO/LO to have anything useful to
say... :) However, I have been happy with the rather transparent changes,
and am using LO in all my applications here.
As an organizer of similar regional Fest (LinuxFest Northwest in
Bellingham, WA), I encourage you to present. If you are interested in
something, chances are good that others will be too. These regional
Fests attract local folks who are prime potential users.
Usually all you have to do in a presentation is describe your own
experience. Invite others in the audience to do the same.
Go for it!
LO is a fantastic opportunity to "shake the bugs out of the rug" that was OO
and get it not only compatible, but as useful as the competition (for
example, has anyone really found "Base" functional?).
Hi MRK, Carl,
Totally agree with Carl here - also, just looking at the events website
and the CFP they specifically mention talks about "Free Culture" so even
if the talk is not particularly technical I would be surprised if they
would not pick it up.
Additionally there was an offer from one of the developers to help with
putting together presentations in just this type of situation, where
there is a community member willing to stand up and deliver a
presentation but could use some help on the technical side.
@MRK - what would you need from the group to help on this?
