Thanks to the folks who tuned in on the TalkShoe audio stream and the Ustream video stream! Despite the small audience, we had a great time, and it was personally great to meet the other team members.
The audio recording of OSCONvasion will be released later tonight as phpBB Weekly #115
. A HD video recording (which is different than the Ustream version) will be released next week once AdamR edits and publishes it. A number of us have taken photos and will be publishing them on Flickr with the tag "osconvasion"
OSCONvasion was the first phpBB meetup ever in North America, and is probably the largest-scale phpBB meetup since Londonvasion. I hope that this will serve as a precedent to help invigorate even bigger, better, and more-well-attended local phpBB events. In particular, as OSCON is one of the biggest events put on for open source projects, we all agreed that we want to see phpBB have a bigger presence at OSCON going forward. Maybe we could even get our own booth...
This topic will continue to be updated as we get media from OSCONvasion online, so we do promise that if you keep your eye here you won't miss anything. (The first post will also be updated with links to audio/video/photos/etc. later on.)
Finally, OSCONvasion may be over, but our time here at OSCON in San Jose isn't! A few of us will be meeting here tomorrow morning to either do some sightseeing/touring or else just have some group discussion (to be decided tomorrow). After all, we're here to have a good time, right?
Overall, OSCON has been a great success, and perhaps we will be able to have more OSCONvasions in the future. If we do, they'll certainly be more thoroughly planned, advertised well in advance, and we're hopeful that we can get even more of the community out to support us.
