Day 0
Well, I’m happy to report I got in last night and was able to meet up with a handful of people. Russ texted me to join them at the bar. After getting settled in the nice Westin Diplomat, I managed to find him along with a few others, despite my phone not having international support. Since the conference doesn’t start until Monday evening, I call this Day 0. Russ and I made followup plans. Previously, we were scheduled to speak in parallel during the same time slot, but that now we are scheduled serially. That is definitely a relief. Russ is giving his presentation on Spring Extensions before my Introduction to Spring Python, and there is some possibility of me providing a little “live” feedback during his presentation. We need to hammer out what that is exactly.

I spent time getting my laptop together this past weekend before traveling down here so that I can give a demo of PetClinic. I wanted to be sure I had a copy of the trunk checked out with the handful of Spring Python’s dependencies installed so I could run the regression test suite as well as PetClinic. It is all working, and now I can comfortably make this blog entry from my hotel room. Stay tuned!
