Richard Jones' Log: OSDC 2006 wrapup

Sun, 10 Dec 2006

OSDC 2006 is done, and it was good. Very good. As I already mentioned it was really well-attended and there was overwhelmingly positive feedback. Of course we've not read the feedback forms so I guess then we'll see what people reallythink :)

I did a lightning talk on the last day quickly demoing Selenium which went over well with the audience (even some "ooh"s :)

Alex and I had spent some time after my presentation trying to figure out why the projector crashed pyglet. We got it working, but I wasn't 100% sure so in the last minute of my lightning talk I got pyglet to open up a simple OpenGL scene that I'd used in my "Shiny" talk. I figured it had to crash since there was an audience. When it didn't crash, and opened up fine, obviously enough people in the audience recognised what we'd done and cheered :)

We had the final beer BOF after the conference close with about two dozen people in attendance. Lots of interesting discussions which I cleverly remembered to write down onto business cards -- people kept buying me beer :)

A great conference, thanks for all of your hard work.

Don't forget to email me about the thing we were talking about at the after conference beer BOF - if you remembered to write it down of course ;-)

Yes I agree with Andy, an excellent conference. And I still owe you a beer or two.
