Yesterday was SuperHappyDevHouse 23, located for the first time in San Francisco (yeah!). It’s basically a programming party with a heavy focus on web 2.0 stuff, but they still let kernel programmers in. It was held in a co-working space, so for the first time there were nearly enough chairs and power outlets for everyone.
During the 6 hours I was there, I learned a lot of useful keyboard shortcuts for my Macbook Air (but still don’t know a way to copy and paste without using two key sequences, which is two key sequences too many), made some significant progress on my silent data corruption contract, and finally got puppet installed and running. About 20 people wanted to pick up my Macbook Air and the rest merely stared lustfully. I brought along my good old Panasonic CF-R5 too; after all, together they only weigh 5.1 lbs. And of course, I made new friends, caught up with the old, and drank the free beer (courtesy Mohr Davidow Ventures).
