BTW, folks from the conference ...

Oh, I meant to add this before and didn't. While at the conference I met many really nice people and had great conversations, but two specifically stand out. One was Clint Thayer who was a fellow computer gamer, and works for the University of Wisconsin as a Lead Developer.

Second was Wez Furlong one of the core developers of PHP, who also works now for OmniTI which happens to be in Columbia, MD. So by pure luck of the draw, we ended up on the same flight out, so got to the waiting area at almost the same time, sat and chatted, and then fate ended up giving us seats next to each other on the flight over.

Anyway, not much more to say other than these are two nice guys I ran into in my travel, and had some good conversations with.

Back from Conference

Made it back fine from the php|works conference this last week. It was a really good conference. Lots of top notch presenters and really good presentations. Also lots of good folks to meet, chat with, brainstorm, and so on.

Looking forward to the next conference DCphp, although I get a bit of a break inbetween now. That's good. I've just spent 2 of the last 3 weeks away from home.
