Some Geeky comics

Well, the Red Hat Summit & JBoss World ended today. It was an extremely busy week and very busy couple of weeks leading up to it for me. I absolutely love going to and getting involved with this event though. You get to meet brilliant people from all over in one place, learn about the latest free & open source technology and see cool demos and take tutorials, and of course the parties are great…. 🙂

One thing that is really neat about the Red Hat Summit & JBoss World is that every morning there is a newspaper called the Red Hat Free Press that’s given out. It provides the day’s schedule, free/open source software related articles, and some other fun geeky content. This year I was very excited to be involved in creating some comics (using Fedora & Inkscape, of course 🙂 ), one for each day of the Summit. Here they are, and I’m providing them under a Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 license (please attribute Red Hat.)

The most challenging part of creating these was coming up with funny jokes. I’d like to thank my co-workers who helped me out in coming up with some punchlines for me to draw. I have to say the pxe boot pixie is my favorite!
