Monday, November 10, 2008 2008 was awesome!

Great event.

Now that's an example of how an open source event should be - laidback, fun, 'protocol-less', various informative tech talks, responsive audience and most importantly everyone was there for one same reason: the love in open source and building a community, not because they had no choice ordered to go there by their bosses.

If you weren't there, honestly speaking, you missed out on ALOT. Whether it was because of other commitments or just plain intimidated that you didn't come that day, well, come to 2009 then (hopefully there'll be one). You will surprised at how friendly and helpful these people are!

I can't stress enough how awesome it was and how much you missed out if you weren't there. Worth my weekend.
