I attended SouthEast LinuxFest June 9-11, 2017. I've been attending every years for the past 4 years or so. This one, as usual, had a very good participant turnout. Some of the bigger vendors such as RedHat and Rackspace were not present. Otherwise, I thought it was good event and I learned many things and met some interesting people. Even picked up few more signatures on my gpg key.

This year I did a crazy thing for an introvert. I presented a ?talk on functional package management with Guix. This was the first time I ever gave a talk in public. Overall, the experience was fun and educational. I ended up talking too fast and finished early, but that actually seemed a good thing as there were many interesting questions.

I hope to give a talk next year.
