And now a hat tip to BarCampRDU's sponsors and donors

As BarCampRDU 2007 approaches, I'd like to take a minute to thank the sponsors and donors who have made this event possible. First, a big thanks to RedHat for the generous donation of their facilities. Without RedHat, BarCampRDU 2007 would not be possible.

Next, I'd like to thank our sponsors. Our sponsors make the pre-party, breakfast and lunch, the awesome BarCampRDU T-shirts and banner, snacks and supplies possible. Without them BarCamp wouldn't be as awesome as it is. Our sponsors:

Next, a thanks to the donors who make various parts of BarCampRDU so much better. First, a big thank you to DisruptorMonkey and The Sinclair Institute, who are making espresso catering possible. That's right, these two wonderful companies have banded together to provide free espresso, lattes and a whole lot more all day long. I have a feeling this is going to be a huge hit!

Finally, a thanks to perennial donors Ibiblio and the Pragmatic Programmers. Ibiblio provides mailing lists and technical support, while the Pragmatic Programmers will be donating their wonderful books to be raffled off.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the work of the many organizers, volunteers and designer extraordinarie Kelly Marks, the creator of the shirts and banners. Thank you to all involved. And I look forward to seeing you at BarCampRDU 2007!
