I am still amazed at the scale of these events, especially watching lunch being served to so many people. I heard there are around 7000+ attendees!
I am done with two presentations on Data Studio Developer, and have just one more lab to go. The presentations went well, however, for me, the post presentation conversations are always the most interesting part.
Some of the questions / comments:
How do I deploy pureQuery applications and merge it with existing deployment processes
- Need to pass along some examples
How does Data Studio Developer integrate with RAD?
- I explained and showed how shell sharing works on my laptop
One random comment:
An attendee came up to me and said, I like how you present ( I say - Thank You). Then he says, I like how you do the 1 - 2 punch ! ... ( I am trying to figure out that comment .. I am still clueless) :)
I also spent quite a bit of time at the Data Studio pedestal. Every customer that I talked to seemed to have pain points associated with Java and data access that pureQuery is addressing. We had a significant number of sessions, so the conversations with quite a few of them usually started with some level of familiarity and that was refreshing.
Attendees, what was your experience like ?
p.s. The background music at the conference hallways is super-annoying ! Agree?
