I'll pop in from time to time. My conference experience started Saturday night at a 9pm meeting with Michael O'Connell and John Muller. We three were giving an overview dW presentation at 9 Sunday morning. So this was our last chance to sync. Our presentation was well attended with about 100 peeps (full room). About 40% raised their hand when Michael asked who had ever used dW before. So it turned out to be a opportunity to expose a bunch'o new folk to dW delights. It was nice to check one RSDC goal as done.
After the preso, a fellow IBMer named Gary Sturm introduced himself. I'd worked with him for years but we never met. Gary is Mr. Trial Download in my mind. It isn't his official job but he somehow now owns the responsibility to produce the hard disk Rational sends out if you prefer your downloads physical rather then downloaded or via online trial. He was especially proud of the 4-disk beauty that he and his team produced for RSDC - it's loaded full of Rational products and beyond (WebSphere, etc). It's a sweet bonus for those attending RSDC. Online folks can get downloads (or their own disks) via the Downloads Section on the left side of the dW site.
