Barcamp Chicago Day 1 Recap

Barcamp Chicago has been a blast. Saturday’s turnout was phenomenal – I would hazard a guess we had 200 people at one point. The formal presentation was always packed, and mini-sessions were going on all around.

There hasn’t been a lot of hacking per se, but lots of active discussions about everything from road trips to Linux distributions to brewing (and trying!) home brewed beer. I could have done some more networking, but overall, I am having a blast.

Unfortunately, my camera isn’t working on my PC or Ken’s – I’m getting USB errors when trying to import the photos, so those will have to wait until I get home to a card reader.

Ken’s been a big hit – lots of folks who have not only heard of Conary, but wanted to learn more, and he’s been in his environment talking away, and his passion and excitement has rubbed off on everyone around him.

We got back to the hotel around 5 a.m., so to say it was a fun-filled day, was an understatement.
