After serveral weeks travelling around the US doing work and visiting friends we ended up in Austin for MWLUG. Another great event organised by Richard Moy and the team with lots of great sessions including Scott Souder’s session on IBM Verse, more on Project Toscana and Ben Langhinrichs’ on Data Visualisation which is an area I’m working a lot in right now.
I had three presentations during the conference and ended up doing four to fill in for a session that was cancelled at the last minute. The Adminblast session I gave was one I hadn’t looked at in over a year until 20 minutes before I started so we all went on a magical journey discovering what I meant to say on each slide as it appeared.
Austin was a great town which I didn’t get to see enough of but luckily we arrived early on the Saturday before the rains started and walked around enjoying the bars and the music. Of all the amazing food on offer I will miss the Vegan Nom taco truck the most. Now to try and reproduce those flavours at home…
