2021/09/27 First Post Covid Linux Conference: Open Source Summit 2021 in Seattle
π 2021-09-27 01:01 in Linux
Well, this was interesting: a hybrid remote/in person conference. About half the speakers were presenting remotely and the other half (or was it third?) went in person to the Seattle Hyatt where the conference was held. I was one of them.
There were not that many attendees, I think 4/5th were remote, so most speakers (including myself) gave talks to a handful of in person attendees, it was a bit weird, but hopefully it worked. The conference required everyone to be vaccinated or have a negative test every day (and they checked). Given that, I found that requiring masking the entire time was a bit over the top, and annoying for speaking to others, but so be it:


Jim Zemlin opened the conference as always:



The various keynotes were good:











Linus and Dirk came in person for their usual firechat



Most speakers, including myself, gave talks in breakout rooms during the 3 days:











My talk went well, despite the low in person attendance:

And of course we had a vendor floor and per person wrapped snacks (per covid rules):



We finished the conference with a reception at the Seattle Aquarium, which I had been to before, but was still fun to see again:
