Last week one of my favourite Java conferences GeeCON took place in Poznan, Poland. The organisers were caring for everything (even free beer ;-), the presentations were interesting and some of the attendees were really passionate about our craft.
If you are ever invited as a speaker to GeeCon: Do accept! It’s really well organised, an incredibly friendly atmosphere, and a really tasty speaker’s dinner.
To sum up, GeeCON was a very good conference but people I met there were even better and more interesting.
Overall, the movie theater-style seating worked well and the technical crew knew their job very well. The volunteers were very prompt in showing the time remaining which was helpful.
This was the quickest I've ever seen complete open-spaces novices fill up a board. As always, the discussions went very well, everyone seemed very happy with the event.
