NetBeans Day Mexico City 2007

I'm on the plane returning from NetBeans Day Mexico City.  The turnout was great!  We had 455 people attend.  This was my first time to Mexico City and Mexico as well.  The people were very friendly.  I'd like to go back some time and see some sites.  I really wasn't supposed to be on this trip.  Gregg Sporar was supposed to go but got sick with the flu.  He called me on a Tuesday, I flew out on Wednesday, looked at the slides and demos for the first time on Thursday, and gave the sessions on Friday.  Overall everything went pretty well.  I did have some editor problems with NetBeans 6.0 M9.  Of course I had gone through the demos many times the day and moments before with no problems.  My Google Tool Bar demo didn't work for some mysterious reason.  I was really frustrated by this so I opened my laptop at the airport about one hour later, ran the demo and it worked.  Here's the proof.

The only explanation I can think of is that I was running in a lower resolution which might have caused the edit tool bar to truncate somehow.  I tried to reproduce the problem by changing the resolution but I could not reproduce this.  Oh well!

The crowd was wonderful.  They asked many good questions and were very much in tune with development issues.  Here's some shots of the actual conference
