If the response from the Project Opening's audience is anything to go by then the Version 4.2 upgrade activity this year is going to be great! It was a good fun session from my point of view with a nice amount of interaction. I really enjoyed ribbing Zem about the CICS on Demand Seminar in Hawaii, but that's only because Nick Garrod and I had wanted to do it.
Some might think I'm on a crusade on the whole community thing, but I like to think of it as gentle persuasion - and I think folks are taking notice of how easy it is to evaluate the sessions online.
Geoff Pirie and I have started work on the charts for the "CICS gets social" session on Thursday (come on, cut us some slack, we only decided to do it last Friday!) We've already got some feedback on some folks' employers attitude to 'new media' sites - not that we didn't know these sort of restrictions are out there in the real world. It's going to be a question of seeing what compromises can be made on both sides - but clearly identifying the benefits is going to be a good first step.
Both Zem's sessions were well attended with some great questions from the audience. I also went to the Rational RDz UT Lunch'n'Learn session (no lunch for me cos it was standing room only almost by the time I got there) - another really good session from Rosalind and Dana, but it's clear that some folks take a bit of time to cotton on to the freedom potential of UT.
Finally I went to a hard-core session on Dual Address Space and the Hardware Linkage Stack - I think my brain is only just calming down, but a rather gorgeous raspberry sorbet was a good medicine for that.
