Last December I attended the Open Source Developers Conference in Melbourne. As well as speaking there, I got to hear and meet many members of the Open Source community. My main reason for attending was the Python Track, but the keynotes, lighting talks and discussion after each day in the pub really "expanded" my mind. It also got me thinking about what I give back to the Open Source community. Apart from the ZInformixDA and abit of beta testing and some patches for a couple of projects, I decided not enough. So the New Year resolution is to become more involved in the community.
