Being Alt.Net

The Alt.Net conference held right here in Austin last weekend was awe inspiring. The quality of the people who came and the sessions they convened was outstanding. This was my second Open Spaces conference and I don’t want to go back to the old way. Much that I wanted to discuss was talked about. I would have attended each and every session there if it was humanly possible. Torn between sessions like DDD-jujitsu and A Microsoft Futurespective I was often flitting between sessions. Sorry there was no Developing Zune plugins session going on. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I feel confident the tenants of this movement will continue to grow and dare I say become normal and everyday.

I want to thank each and everyone that came from near and far to attend I learned a lot from you. I also want to personally thank my fellow Dovetailers Doc List, Bret Pettichord and the great Alt.Net gladiator himself Scott Bellware. They worked very hard to bring this event to Austin and they did us proud.
