I had the opportunity to give a presentation at Vermont Code Camp 6 entitled “This Linux Life.” Below is an Action Photo taken during the session.
The storyline of the presentation followed my own transition from Microsoft Windows to all Linux all the time, for work and for play. My main objective was to introduce Linux to Microsoft developers and to show how Linux compares feature-to-feature with what they might currently be using.
We spent a lot of time comparing the Linux Development and Everyday Experience and didn’t get to fully cover the last few areas on Linux distributions, desktop environments and other Linux technical details. That was okay with me, since I feel confident we succeeded in presenting Linux as a complete and exciting choice for developers and non-developers alike.
