I returned home from ArchCon 2010 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada earlier this afternoon, and I'm glad I had the chance to attend and speak at the conference. Yes, it was not the world's largest Linux conference by any means, but it was a great size for the first time doing this and I'm looking forward to future gatherings of Arch Linux users and developers in the same room.

Dusty already did a great writeup of some of the happenings of the weekend, so definitely give that a read if you haven't already. Yes, plenty of beer was consumed, but we had a great excuse to do so and I can add three more people to the "Arch Developers I've Drank With" list: Dieter, Jason, and Kevin.

I delivered two presentations, and you can view the slides and video recordings for both. Of course, you should check out as many of them as possible as we all had some great and informative talks. They can all be found from the ArchCon 2010 website.

Thanks to everyone who organized things, thanks to all of my fellow presenters, and thanks to all of the attendees – I'm glad things went extremely well over the weekend. Additionally, it is always great to put some names and faces together and I was definitely able to do that this weekend. I also hope my talks (and those of others) not only encourage people to chip in and help with development and direction, but let them know just how easy it is to do so.
