Lately I’ve been very impressed with Novell and the things they have done for the local open source community here in Utah. I think it’s pretty awesome that a company as big as Novell would take an interest in the work and needs of those who might just be working out of their own garage.

This years Utah Open Source Conference was a great success. If you missed it I would highly recommend not missing next year as the conference seems to grow every year (Or at least it has since it started).

Novell really come through for those who attended by providing laptop bags for carrying around all of our schwag. These weren’t the cheapo bags you would expect from a conference either, they were really nice and I’m impressed that they would do that.

In short I’d like to give a Kudos to Novell for really going all out.

I guess I should have expected it, since it was my first presentation, but I really blew it. Note to self, when creating a presentation leave the details out. My presentation was supposed to be on the future of  Artificial Intelligence but I got caught up in current artificial intelligence. On member of the audience actually raised his hand to ask me what I was talking about…. 😦
