My day finally arrived. I had to conduct a hackfest on Puppet. I planned on creating some basic puppet modules which could be used by newbies and beginners to understand and modify to use. Sadly there were no contributor, only newbies so I converted the hackfest into a workshop. I taught them how to install and configure puppet. Sadly only one of the guys was able to do it properly in one go. Most of them, though configured it correctly, were not able to use it properly because of lack of fqdn on the laptops. Anyway, I had to wrap it up since it was the time for my flight. I had an amazing time with everyone. It is not always when you meet such awesome people under one roof with a single goal of doing good for community. I loved the spirit that nobody boo’ed away people using other distributions. Everyone was welcomed with great spirit.
As a closing thought, the number of contributors in Bangalore are increasing. With Arun SAG moving here and Srishti Sethi starting to contribute, we might be able to have a FAD sometime.
