I just finished giving a Fedora talk at Faculty of Informatics Masaryk University. That is one of the reasons why I've spent the week working here from the Brno Red Hat office.
I was told to expect about 20 students, so I was happy to see 40~50 folks sitting in the audience. I gave a talk on the history of Fedora and how we got to where we are now, the lessons we've learned along the way. I also talked a bit about the future direction and why we're doing what we are doing.
It was a short talk with a few slides (because I like talking more than clicking a button) and it only took about 30 minutes. I was worried as I was booked for 60, and I was told before hand not to expect (m)any questions. Imagine my surprise when we then had a good 20 minutes of questions and discussion about Fedora! Many of the students seemed knowledgeable about Fedora and the current happenings. I hope I answered questions well enough and gave them a good sense of what is going on and a good feeling about where we are going. Apparently that is the most discussion any RHT speaker has gotten there, ever!
Tonight is my last night in Brno. It has been a fun week, but I really miss my family and I can't wait to go back. The Brno folks have been very hospitable and helpful. I will look back on this trip fondly.
Tonight I hope to have a simple dinner and find a shop to pick up some gifts, then get to sleep early. I flee the city at 07:30 tomorrow morning for my flight home out of Vienna. Looking forward to seeing my boys!
