Apache, MySQL, LinuxFest Northwest and Bikes

LinuxFest Northwest is coming soon on April 30-May 1. I often present on MySQL and was considering doing an Apache talk again. However, these are broad topics and I’d like to split them up into tracks. Who wants to also talk about MySQL or Apache? Time is short.

As a father of two action hero kids, I’ve brought Liam to Fest for two years now, and he’s enjoyed the robotics and computer lab. I encourage and hope to meet fellow parents coming on Sat who might have preschool or elementary age kids who might want to meet up. Little kids need a break, get bored easily, and having a soccer ball or frisbee or bicycle about might help them have some fun. Liam and I will be biking, if a small ride during lunch sounds good, biking around Squalicum Creek park/Birchwood is an option.

Friday and Saturday nights are often good fun. If you want to ride your bike to the pub and back to the Hampton, the route is pretty low traffic. Riding from the Hampton to BTC is a cinch, too! Ask, I shall post google maps links! (I’d also be happy to lead that little ride.)

Really stretching your legs on Sunday might feel great, specially after sitting thru so many talks, right? There’s growing interest in a Sunday Penguin bike ride after lunch. I think a ride up to Hovander Homestead would be a refreshing change from a weekend of lectures, no? https://blog.bitratchet.com/potential-2011-penguin-ride/
Meet at bike racks in front of G building. Food? I can do hot dogs on a propane grille!

Please rattle my cage and tell me you want to present and go for a Sunday ride!
