FrOSCon 2007

FH Bonn Rhein-Sieg Last weekend saw the second installment of the Free and Open Source Software Conference (FrOSCon) in Sankt Augustin. The conference revolved around a rich schedule of talks, highlighting current topics in Free Software and Open Source. Moreover, Open Source projects took the opportunity to organize their own meetings or even their own lineup of events. Just like last year, the PHP usergroups of Dortmund and Cologne/Bonn organized the PHP @ FrOSCon subconference with two full days of presentations. For me, Sankt Augustin is conveniently located near to my hometown of Siegburg and so FrOSCon started for me on Friday night with greeting Giuseppe, Markus, Roland, and Beat from MySQL in Sankt Augustin for dinner. After dinner we made a quick excursion to Siegburg for the annual town fair that took place here over the weekend. Keysigning Party On Saturday, the first conference day, I attended a couple of talks (that I, apart from Arne's and Carola's presentation on XUL, don't remember). In the evening I attended the keysigning party before we headed out to Siegburg for dinner and another stroll over the town fair. Tobias, Henri, and Boris On Sunday, the second day of the conference, Tobias Schlitt arrived in Sankt Augustin and together we took care of the server that runs phpunit.de. In the afternoon, I gave my presentation on PHPUnit which was well received. In the evening, we headed out to Cologne for dinner at a Brazilian restaurant were we enjoyed rodizio. Afterwards we walked to the Dom, took some pictures, and had some ice cream for dessert.
