Last night, Erin and I presented to a group of various people from the Paris Linux Users Group and the Paris Novell Users Group. [Note to self: Try to schedule events in Paris before Bastille Day or after the French summer holidays.]
Jimmy Pierre, the fearless leader for NUI France helped us to organize the event, and the Novell office in Paris provided facilities. After the event, Jimmy and his lovely wife took us to a nice brasserie for dinner. (Alas, it turns out that a brasserie has nothing to do with brazieres! Go figure.)
Favorite things about presenting in France? The French always have an excellent sense of humor. Especially when it comes to my poor ability to speak French and my American accent. (I’m not sure what this means, but I’m sure it’s a charming way of saying “nice try”: “Votre français est sympathiquement ‘correct’ !” –Jean-Claude Tavera.) Oh, and Champagne and aperatifs after the presentation!
Today, we hang out in the Paris office doing some work abd speaking to colleagues. Then, on to LugRadio Live.
