Code Exchange? Is that like the stock exchange for programs?
(portions of this blog appeared on asug.com already. other stuff didn’t)
I ran into Rui Nogueira on the train to SAP TechEd 2010 between Mannheim and Berlin. Craig Cmehil, pictured on the right in the first picture below, introduced me before we got on board. There was some sort of minor family crisis as Rui almost missed the train, but arrived on time to begin the journey. We had less than an hour before the rest of the Clue Train crew boarded in Frankfurt, which was enough time to get the sense of Rui, at least in non-working conditions. I’d consider him a friend now, not just a colleague or a check-box on a LinkedIn panel.

Separately, the train seats on the clue train look very comfortable...
