Last night was fun, between the pool party (complete with fireworks, tattoos, fortune tellers, and much more) and winning a bit in the casino (though blackjack was not so good, the craps table more than compensated; my thanks to Kristin, who despite being a beginner really knows how to throw the dice).
It's been great to talk to attendees of all stripes, to learn what challenges they're facing. It's gratifying when we hear customers validating what we are doing, whether the "we" is devleoperWorks, Rational, or IBM. The suggestions and criticism may not always be easy to swallow, but it may be even more valuable insofar as helping us better serve your wants and needs. So please keep sharing your input, positive or not.
I'm looking forward to spending more time outside of climate-controlled environments of conference halls and casinos. And right now I'm looking forward to sleep!
