The week included a small meetup in an Irish pub in Leipzig with two other local NetBeans enthusiasts, Benno Markiewicz (a NetBeans Dream Team member) and Chris Lenz (who is redesigning the NetBeans website), together with Jens Vorberg and Nico Krebs from ProjektMotor:
Then we started a road trip to Prague, for Nico to demonstrate his project to the NetBeans development team. The trip took about 3 hours and included a meal at a Thai restaurant and a farmer strike in the center of Leipzig:
It was also a great time for Jirka Kovalsky, the NetBeans community manager who runs the NetCAT program, for enthusiastic NetBeans community members who help out on testing new NetBeans releases, because he and Benno and Chris met for the first time, after several years of 'knowing' each other via e-mail and so on:
And, of course, the day ended with... beer in a Czech pub!
We'll be doing more NetBeans roadtrips like this. I have a dream... of a bus of developers en route to Prague from places all over Europe and maybe the world!
