- In 2007, I went to the Vancouver PHP conference and LWE-SF.
- For 2008, I went to MySQL UC, and I'm going to be at OLS2008 in Ottawa next week, July 21st thru 27th.1
I'll have the entire Sunday free in Ottawa (my flight home is in the evening, and the conference itself ends up Saturday). Anybody that wants to hang out, that would be cool, or sight-seeing.
Additionally, if you're interested in PGP keysigning, or CACert assurances, you should seek me out with some ID. This applies doubly to all Gentoo developers with the upcoming tree-signing work.
While I'm not going to OSCON since it conflicts with OLS, my friend Zak Greant (really I mean it, he lives just up the street from me!) is going to OSCON, and putting on a totally free mini-conference within it: FOSSCoach. If you're just trying to get a start in open source from a beginner's perspective, and would like to be more than just a user, it should be worth checking out. (I meant to hype it a while ago, but was too busy).
