Once again the So Cal Linux Expo is upon us! This marks my fourth consecutive year in attendance, and it has had steady growth through that time.
Regrettably, in contrast to previous years, we did not have a Fedora Activity Day this year. As a result, i arrived with my wife Friday afternoon instead of Thursday evening. This freed me to take advantage of the great talks during the day, such as the DevOps talk on scaling data and stumbling into how to store private information sanely with MySQL.
The evening rounded off with UpSCaLE, which is a series of short talks. My favorite was someone orated a poem about poor deployment strategies to the theme of the seven deadly sins. Other notables were an led palette color chooser and an open source net security based board game.
The real fun starts tomorrow at the both.
