Opera at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas (pictures included)

March 13, 2007

This week Opera is at the popular SXSW (South by Southwest) conference.

In addition to the talk/presentation by Charles McCathieNevile, the Chief Standards Officer at Opera Software, Opera also has a booth there showing off the Opera desktop browser, Opera Mini, Opera on the Nintendo Wii and DS, and more.

The funny thing about Opera’s booth is that it’s sharing a back wall with the Mozilla Firefox booth (though Opera’s booth is about twice the size of Firefox’s).

While in Austin, a couple Opera guys were wandering around the city and onto the BarCamp Austin, and then proceeded to buy everyone drinks on behalf of Opera. There’s even a press mention of it by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Lawrence Eng, who’s at the conference, sent me some photos last night. Take a look at them below.

Opera bought and hosted coffee for SXSW attendees on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday morning.

    Why the heck do they have to go to Austin, when Lubbock is soo much more “fun”? Ah well, I guess I can make a trip down to Austin the next time they have a meeting. But I won’t like being in a rival school’s town very much though. 😛

    I’ll send more photos after I get home. (My flights are delayed, unfortunately)
