Pasadena, California, 2 – 5 March 2017

I took a quick trip to Pasadena for SCaLE 15X (the Southern California Linux Expo). I was there to do booth duty for LibreOffice.

Here’s a shot of the outside of the hall and a view of the venue before everything was set up.

I didn’t take a lot of pictures inside the hall (though I did make a video on the last day of me making the rounds of the booths). For example, the night before the exhibit hall opened, one of the other booth staffers and I went to make copies of some handouts, and we saw this parrot right near a Petco store:

I stayed at a hotel that was close to a Gold Line metro stop. The rest of these pictures are from a trip to the convention center from the Memorial Park metro station, passing by Pasadena Civic Center. As happens so often, a theme for the day presents itself, and this time it was planters. Go figure.
