Penguicon 6.0

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Today, I registered for Penguicon 6.0, which is an annual science fiction and open source software convention held in Troy, Michigan. Last year was the first time that I had attend Penguicon, and I was very impressed by the conference. Penguicon may not be the most technical conference, but it is a good time and the guest speakers are outstanding. I didn’t attend any of the scifi talks, but all of the presentations I went to on open source were good last.

This year some of the big names that will be there are: Jono Bacon, Eric Raymond, Chris DiBonna, Benjamin Mako Hill, and Dr. Peter Salus. This is a unique and extremely good time. I would recommend this conference to anyone in the Mid-west area. Besides Penguicon, this year I would also like to attend HOPE and the Ohio Linux Fest.
