Code Camp Oz

Just got back from Code Camp Oz. I fear my journey to the "geek" side is now fully complete.
Had a great time, met some more of my fellow Readify colleagues. It's always good to be able to put a face to the emails and blogs.
I attended most of the seminars.... (couldn't quite bring myself to get to the talks...... I feel I've done enough VB6 and VBA in the past that if anybody really wanted me to do some VB.Net I could quite easily wing it). There were 2 talks that had me very interested, both on one of my pet topics...... performance. It's good to see that the developer community is taking performance seriously.
Other talks were also very good, and I think given the circumstances, all the speakers did a really good job. Murphy's law always holds true for demonstrations, worship of the demo Gods sometimes helps, but when you're using beta software, sometimes even the demo Gods give up and go home.

Thanks to all those who organised it, it was well worth giving up a weekend for.
