WCHL and RHAT’s Greg deK on BarCampRDU

Paul, · Categories: FOO Camp, General

WCHL interviewed Red Hat’s Greg deKoenigsberg and some others [mp3] about BarCampRDU. Despite the title “Red Hat offers BarCamp” the story is a good one and Greg never says “hey Red Hat did this conference;” he’s right on top of it being done by volunteers and that Red Hat provided the space — and his help which was greatly appreciated.

I do agree with the textual description “150 of the Triangle‚Äôs brightest computer programmers gathered at the headquarters of software company Red Hat this Saturday.” Boldness added by me.
