I’ve too been to FrOSCon last weekend. Considering that I announced to give a talk there, this should not surprise anyone. FrOSCon is a two-day event at the university of applied science of Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. It is very well organized (a multitude of volunteers guaranteed that everything went smoothly) has a friendly atmosphere that makes it very likeable.
Apart from meeting some friends I haven’t seen in quite a while (there was a lot of catching up to do), I gave a talk about CouchDb. It didn’t went as well as I wished but I think it was okay. I even got a few people interested and playing with it.
The FrOSCon officials counted around 1,100 attendees over the weekend, but at no point the conference seemed crowded. This was only the second instalment, but they apparently already found their key to success. FrOSCon is a valuable addition the the European Open Source conference scene.
