geek events

September 10th, 2006

Over the years I've been reading the Gentoo newsletters and there have been quite a lot of events happening all over the place (especially in Germany), although I was always far away from it all geographically. But now that I start from Holland, I can make the trip without as much of a hassle. I looked around the web and I found these events of interest in the upcoming year:

That is a lot to choose from, I never knew there were so many. I've already registered for the NLUUG event next week. I was meant to visit FOSDEM this year, but I missed it, so I'd like to go next year. Then there's CeBIT, always wanted to go to that. And since the LinuxWorld Expo is in Utrecht, I have no excuse to miss it. :D

So that, I think, is the plan for this year. As for the other events, maybe in the future sometime. One thing for certain, it sure is practical to live in Holland rather than the high north in terms of geek events. :D

If you want to put together your own agenda, most of these events are listed on Wikipedia.

    Hahaha indeed not, somehow I end up getting searched everytime :lazy:

    Well, I was thinking more along the lines of every event being no more than a few hours on the train away. Air travel is messed up in its own right, have to get to the airport, wait there several times, land, get back into the city etc. For a flight whose equivalent train journey is less than 5-6h it's not even worth it.

    Oh definitely true. Flying is such a hassle nowadays. Like going to the doctor. Big waiting room, smaller waiting room, take your pants off, THEN you get on the plane.

    I've never seen the small waiting room. What the hell is that about?

  6. And you even missed one.
