Its about 1:00am on Saturday morning and I’ve just got back home. The kids are in bed and it is really quiet, a good time to reflect on the past week.
On thursday, I spent most of the day in the SDN clubhouse hanging out at the SDN table with the SDN crew and some SDN contributors. Alvaro Tejada Galindo(aka Blag) and I were blogging most of the time, but there were other things going on as well. Craig did his famous SDN Quiz Show, and as expected Blag won this as well. He won a Wii the night before at Hacker Night. We were all jealous.
At the end of the day we all went to the buffet and had a good meal. For me, it was the first substantial meal I had all week. We had good food, and some good laughs.
Next, we all went to the Goo Goo Dolls concert. I’ve been following the Goo Goo Dolls ever since they went mainstream in the mid 90s, so it was great to hear some of the songs from that time. It brought back a lot of memories from my senior year of high school. Still trying to figure out why there needed to be 100 guitars on either side of the stage. 😉
In summary, I would have to say that this was one of the better TechEds that I’ve attended in recent years. There was great content spread over a wide range of topics and different technologies. The Community Clubhouse was a blast, and I had a great time hanging out with the SDN gang and chatting about whatever. A few of them will be in Munich as well, but unfortunately for me, I will not be able to make it. I hope to get across the pond to meet the SDN powerhouses from Europe one of these years.
