Well, the conference is at an and and I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. Apart from the obvious social networking it was really good to put faces to the names that you have communicated with via the good old Internet for many years.
It was especially great to meet Ed Leafe in person , as it was Mike Babcock and of course Kevin Cully who's hard work and dedication has produced a new fledgling conference that I can honestly say was the best I have ever attended. Kevin's attention to detail was perfection and his "hassling" of the presenters has produced the most complete set of conference notes that I have ever received. As those of you who have ever been to a conference know, the notes are ideal for revisiting the subjects covered after the event and after the "brain fade" has subsided.
Have I learnt anything? - You bet
Would I come back again? - Kevin,make me the top of your list for next year
Would I recommend it to anyone? - Definitely, but even if you can't make the next FoxForward then just GO to any of the conferences, you will not regret it
As for me, I'm off this afternoon for a short flight around the Atlanta area and up to the north where I have been told that it is really pretty, before my journey back tomorrow.
Once again, thanks to everyone who made the conference special. I still have sessions from Bo Durban and Tod McKenna to blog about which I will try and do later this evening. The only small criticism I do have though, is that I wasn't able to make a couple of the sessions due to the conflicting timetable, but that is life and good reason to return next year.
Thanks Kevin and regards to your family who really handled all the registration and organisation superbly. See you (hopefully) next year.
