Last night Ed Brill was in town. Working from a small office out in the suburbs I decided it would be good to get out and meet him and some other developers, ISVs and IBM Partners.
I arrived at the "Slip Inn" looking for a bunch of people I didn't know in a busy pub. Clearly I didn't think through the scenario before embarking on the journey. I had a vague idea what Ed looked like, but no idea how many others would be coming. It's amazing how many people look similar!
Good news is I found the group of about 10 eventually and had a good yarn with most of them. It was a fun night and I got to talk tech to some new faces and hear some new perspectives on the IT industry.
