Personally, I attended as a voyeur...attending many of the talks and I caught Joe Brockmeier's keynote. Something I enjoyed throughly. I also messed around and learned some things...both about Linux and the people that breath the rarefied air at the top.
My hat is off to Nathan Willis and others who made it happen.
2011 promises to raise the bar. A recent call for papers was announced and the TLF team is now sifting through the huge pile of submissions, trying to lay out an informative and entertaining event.
No doubt they will succeed.
Nate contacted me recently and asked me if I knew anyone who used or was familiar with Koha.
"Koha is a Full-featured ILS. In use worldwide in libraries of all sizes, Koha is a true enterprise-class ILS with comprehensive functionality including basic or advanced options. Koha includes modules for circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, serials, reserves, patron management, branch relationships, and more.

The TLF is interested in having someone talk about Koha during the 2011 event. Texas Linux Fest will kick off on the 2nd of April and run through the weekend. Here are some important dates you might find useful.
- January 17: Call For Papers opens
- February 14, 11:59 p.m.: Deadline for proposals
- February 25: Last date for notification of submission acceptance
