Yeah, the attendance was great. Pretty hard to say how many people attended
because of that, though, since we didn't poll on it. But I will say that it
was a Friday track, which is generally the lowest turnout day because of
work/school conflicts.

In the past we always had commercially-focused material on Fridays, since a
lot of businesses will let their people go on Friday if it's to attend a
training-related thing. So Red Hat will do a day of RHEL classes or
whatever.

I definitely recommend it for SCALE; I can probably even help if you want
(I've gone every year I could; this past one I was in the UK so it was the
first I missed in quite a while).

Nate
