I left the conference right after the talk. Beeing tired and wiped out it was time for me to take the ride back. Two hours by car to get to munich is not the best time you can do for this distance but it's ok. At the end I was happy to have my girls back and finaly have some time to spend with them in the late afternoon.
To make it short: I always enjoy the Doag conference. There are many reasons for that. First I like to see the people enjoying the program we created for them. Especially this year it was very hard to get that many good speakers and talks for the Java stream as both Devoxx and WJAX happened at the same time. I spoke to some of the speakers and some even made at last two conferences this week. If I could make a wish, I would love to see all three happening on different dates. Devoxx is something I like to attend, too next year.
The second reason is, that I like the location. The CCN is perfect for the size. All in one location on different levels. You start knowing about the rooms the second day and the tracks try to use the same rooms over and over again. That is easily navigable.
Third reason this year are the many high quality foreign speaker we had. So many ACE's, Oracle's and other guests have been on the program that it was nearly a three day English speaking conference for me. I enjoyed having OTN there. Todd did an awesome job and I would like to thank the OTN team for making this possible and for following our invitation!
I would like to close with some very famous words from a well know Austrian-Amerikan: DOAG, "I'll be back!" next year! Looking forward to it!
