Reports

The event was as expected. But with a wider topic range like it was in the past. This time,
there were more talks available: both for newbies as well as for nerds. I enjoyed the two 
days at some talks and at the boothes of Xfce/Geany and Fedora. This time, the Fedora booth 
was very small compared to all the other events I'd already joined.
Unfortunately, some of the schedulded talks could not happen. I assume that was due to the 
strikes at german railways - so there were not much visitors, too.
