Other comments about OLFU

  • Both for 2009 and 2010, the convention center ballrooms and the classrooms were freezing. The open area that the booths were located was fairly warm by comparison. The audio quality for the speakers in the ballrooms could be improved.
  • Coming from the professional or enterprise side of Linux, corporations are struggling with costs and OLFU is a gret value. But I would like to see the talks be more technical in nature and relate mroe to an enterprise setting.
  • Looking back, I wish I had taken the LPI track instead.
  • This is my second time through the LPI, and I've been disappointed each time. All that Don does is print off the objectives from the site and read through them. This is far from a cram session.
  • The Python class could have started with a higher assumption on the Python knowledge of people walking into the class and focused more on Python specific system administration. The afternoon class should have been the morning class and the afternoon class should have gone further.
