Now that the conference is over ,and I am merely doing 3 back to back RavenDB courses in 3 cities and 2 continents, I can sit back and look at that.
I was, in a word, a blast. We had eight speakers giving 14 talks, about topics that moved from date and time handling in RavenDB to operational concerns to architectural how to. But, to be honest, I think that I found the attendees to be the main attraction. It was really good to finally meet so many of the people we have been talking with over the past few years. And what people are building with RavenDB is flat out amazing, and just a little bit scary. It is a funny thing when I see people take our tool and put it to uses that we have never even imagined.
Another great part was the hackaton. We had, in the space of a few hours, produced a major new feature for RavenDB (distributed counters), with everything wired up: Storage, Wire Protocol and even the UI. We still need to complete the replication bits, but those are coming.
We have recorded the sessions, and we hope to have the edited videos soon. I wanted to take the time and thank the speakers and the attendees for such a great conference .
We’ll be seeing you again soon… .
