DevCon 2017

So I've been home for almost a week now after having attended Devcon 2017 in Amsterdam.

I have to give a shout out to Pascal Brusset and his entire team for putting on a great event. The venue was great, the sessions were great, and the speakers were great too. I especially want to thank them and all of Liferay for letting me attend and give a presentation, it has been one of the things on my bucket list for a while now that I can now check off of the list.  cool  Note this doesn't mean I don't want to go again to a future one, hint hint hint...

And another shout out to my good friend, Olaf Kock, who organized the sold-out Unconference. I'm glad I was able to attend, and I'm going to be sure to sign up as early as I can next year so I can make the cut wink

I want to thank my friend Ray Auge for the idea about OSGi Subsystems; they solve a problem I've been concerned about, and once he planted the idea in my head I was able to burn the midnight oil and turn it into a new blog post.

For all of those who I had a chance to talk with and hopefully help a little, it was truly my honor. And to those that I didn't get a chance to, well that's something I hope to reconcile at a future event.

To those that attended my session on Development Pitfalls, thanks for attending. Remember if you have any questions or concerns, you can usually get a response from me in the forums.

Now I'm getting ready for next week's LSNA in Austin. I'm looking forward to catching up with some of my old friends and hopefully making some new ones.

If you're going to LSNA, feel free to stop me and say Hi or ask a question or whatever. To me, that's the best part of attending the events and getting to hear your problems and issues and potentially turning those into a new blog post.


Hi David, It was really nice to see you and talk to you again. I hope you'll come back in the next year!
