A Day at the IT Forum in Vancouver - page 4
Breakfast and a Keynote
All in all, the IT Forum provided for an interesting day. I learned a few new things, got to talk to other people in the IT community along with running into some people I know from the local Linux community, and probably ate healthier than I would have at home since there was someone else to cut the fruit and vegetables up into nice, neat pieces. There also wasn't a lot of product pushing in the talks I attended, which was nice. I wasn't sure what to expect there since this was a free show.
The main complaint I heard was that there weren't many giveaways. Just some free pens. Perhaps we techies are a bit spoiled with the expectation that we won't have to buy any new T-shirts ever again, if we just attend enough conferences.
