    A good collection of vendors and good sessions. I especially liked the perl memory talk. I thought there should have been more organized networking opportunities, not just competitions.

    I have a lot of questions concerning Linux. Especially about getting a career in it. Should I go to this Linux fest to find my answers or just a regular "meet up"?

      Well now I'm a bit confused on whether to attend the "Linux fest" or not. Other than having Ubuntu & CentOS installed on my hard drives I am a complete beginner with Linux. I'm sure I'm not ready for a job with this field, but I am interested in speaking with some people on where to get started and having expert advice from the start.

      Since I cannot make Friday, but can Saturday I will miss some topics that seem to be more towards my particular interests at the moment.

      I'll go if you Linux enthusiasts think it would be worth it for me, but if not I'll just wait until the next "meet up".

      Give me your opinions one more time based on what I've just said.

      I definitely think you should go. There will be recruiters (come see what they are looking for in new hires), and there are always plenty of Linux newbies. Plus, you won't have another chance until next year.

    Your saying that the festival runs from 10 am on Friday. The Friday schedule shows sessions starting at 8 am. If anyone is interested in the early sessions on Friday, I advise not showing up at 10 am.

    Hi! Really wanted to attend the Git class, but my manager won't allow the time off. Will the session be recorded? Would it be possible to get the handouts and notes?
