DevConnections was a whirl-wind four days filled with learning and fun.  So what did I take away from this trip?

There were a lot of smart people who presented as well as attended.  Unfortunately I was disappointed with about half of the sessions I attended.

Luckily that leaves half of the sessions which were inspiring.  The last day's highlights were Brian Noyes and Kathleen Dollard.

Kathleen Dollard seemed to have a way of presenting pieces of code that just made you get the whole concept behind a language feature.  She also explained that the reason that software is so much harder today is that there are so many of the language features which are possible ways to implement software.

In the end if you get a chance to attend one of these events jump on it.  If nothing else it recharges the batteries and gets you out of the daily grind.
