FOSDEM: will you be there?
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:20:03 PM »
Hi,

If you happen to be in Brussels in the next couple of days, you are most likely visiting FOSDEM ( http://fosdem.org/ ). It would be nice to meet you guys in person, drink some fine Belgian beer and talk about the PowerPC notebook! Why do you want one, what are your expectations, where do/did you use PPC, etc. I'll be at the FOSDEM beer event Friday evening, and will wear my power.org t-shirt. For the other two days I'll proudly wear my syslog-ng super hero t-shirt ( https://czanik.blogs.balabit.com/2015/01/syslog-ng-at-fosdem-t-shirt-for-code/ ) :-)

In either t-shirt it would be great to meet you there!

CzP

Thanks for the invitation!
I hope to see many friends with PowerPC Notebooks in their hands at FOSDEM 2016!
After FOSDEM 2015 please update us about new friends of our GNU/Linux PowerPC Notebook project...
Thanks

Have Fun!

FOSDEM: I did not meet anybody, who was specifically looking for the PowerPC Notebook project. Of course this did not prevent me talking about it :-) Reactions were very diverse. Many people did not even here about PPC and wondered why anyone needs a non x86 architecture machine. Many more knew about PowerPC, were enthusiastic about it due to Amiga or networking background, but had a long list of reasons to stick to an Intel Notebook. And of course there were a couple of people, who loved the idea and became interested to get one.

DevConf.cz is another great conference. There were many presentations and workshops related to PowerPC and a very welcoming environment. I was assured, that the Fedora PPC64 userland would run without any problems on the PowerPC notebook, we just need to provide it with a suitable kernel. You can read more about my experiences at DevConf at https://czanik.blogs.balabit.com/2015/02/czp-devconf-2015/
