LinuxDays: An Open-Source Event Of Disorganization
The inaugural LinuxDays event took place the prior few days in Prague, Czech Republic where around 800 open-source developers and users converged for a series of meetings and technical sessions.
LinuxDays in Prague is a new event designed to succeed Prague's LinuxExpo conference. LinuxDays took place at the ČVUT university and co-hosted alongside LinuxDays was the openSUSE Conference, Gentoo Mini Conference, and SUSE Labs. The SUSE events are still going on today and tomorrow while the rest of the conference was just a weekend affair.
While this was the first LinuxDays to happen and had high hopes considering it pulled in multiple distributions (aside from Gentoo and openSUSE, there were also Fedora and Ubuntu members too), the event itself turned out to be rather a disappointment; this just wasn't my opinion but it seemed to be the consensus from most that I talked to as well.
The event also felt more like an expanded openSUSE Conference rather than something truly community-focused and targeting Linux as a whole rather than just one particular distribution. The Gentoo Mini Conference and the other sessions just felt tacked on rather than truly integrated and part of the event.
OpenSUSE on ARM, Wayland, and Gentoo Linux Gaming. Among other silly things about the event was also the printing of openSUSE's Code of Conduct for all attendees.
FOSDEM in Brussels and LinuxTag in Berlin. Both LinuxTag and FOSDEM are superior to this LinuxDays collection of events in almost every regard.
