OSCON, back in the old days, was the Mekka for open source developers. Glorious but out of reach and too far away. I don’t know if that image holds true still, but judging the enthusiastic reports by previous attendees, it does. And this year I will be able to attend.
I will not only be able to attend, I will even give a presentation. You can guess the topic of course and I don’t want to stretch this post into advertising CouchDB yet again. (I’ll leave that to other posts :-)
This is a heads-up for all the friends and colleagues I’ve known and worked with for quite a few years now but haven’t had a chance to meet in a while. If you are coming to OSCON, please get in touch (see the sidebar). For all the folks I have not yet met but want to say hi, do the same.
