The response this year has been mixed. We got a great list of sponsors and everything is taken care of from the conference point of view. We have food, T-Shirts, evening drinks, pretty much everything I need covered. Thanks to our sponsors.
In terms of the participants, we had about 35 people who showed up yesterday. I know 8-10 more people who are going to come in today. So I think we’ll have a good 50 people at the conference. 50 is not bad, but I was hoping to have more people than what we had at last year’s conference [which was 68 people]. Having said that, I’m not really a numbers person. I perfectly fine with less people. [In fact sometimes I think the less the better].
We have the privilege of some really well known people in the industry. I’m sure we’ll all benefit from their experience. Just to name a few folks, we have Brian Marick, Ron Jefferies, Chet Hendrickson, Jeff Patton, Paul Julius, William Wake, George Dinwiddie and many more. Certainly we have a really really passionate set of folks at the conference. Some great topics were suggested yesterday in the opening of the open spaces. More interesting topics to come up today. Watch out the conference schedule page for topics.
Watch out the conference wiki to see what come out.
