I just hit the ground in Canada after returning from Astricon.Â The silence for the last couple of days has been do to two things:Â travel, and the terrible French WiFi.Â I’ve still got another three hours of travelling, but two of them involve me parking myself on the floor in Montreal airport, and catching on a little web surfing.
Astricon was great, if a little small.Â Reflecting back on it, I met a series of interesting people who are all part of this growing community of developers.Â I also had an opportunity to have some Pizza with a bunch of the Digium folks in Berlin on Tuesday night, including Mark.Â Thanks for buying the Pizza mark!
People were genuinely interested in what iotum is doing, and I expect more than a few takers for the iotum free accounts offer we’re currently running.Â There were also a couple of really good opportunities for us too, any of which would easily make the show into a home run.
As the show wound up, I thanked Steve Sokol for having me as a speaker.Â I mentioned to him that I thought it would have been more effective to have it in one location, rather than Paris, Berlin and London.Â Â It would been easier on my pocketbook too, to travel for three days, rather than 7 days in two different cities.Â Steve agreed.Â
I also think that providing WiFi (as Pulver does at the VON events) would be a huge improvement.
Two small dings, in what was otherwise a valuable and professionally run event.
