ZendCon 2008 Wrap

My ZendCon 2008 wrap is brief: Kuassi & I spent almost all our time at the Oracle Booth in the exhibition hall.

We spent close to 11 hours setting up and working on Tuesday - it was busy, and 8 hours on Wednesday. (Note to self for OOW next week: wear sneakers). It's been a while since we had a booth at a PHP conference. It was great to meet such a cross section of attendees, many of whom were from overseas. Hi to everyone who dropped by. Thanks for doing our survey and congratulations to the raffle winners.

I have a few outstanding questions asked to me at the conference, which I'll attend to soon (or "momentarily" as they say here in the US).

I wasn't able to attend Luxi's connection pooling talk today, but I heard it went well. Thanks to the IRC chatter, I almost felt I was there.

I spoke briefly to some of the folk from Microsoft and IBM about PDO when they came by our booth. I can't see any sudden burst of activity happening, but we'll what does eventuate.

Special thanks to Kuassi for car-pooling, Todd for organizing our booth & raffle prizes, Yahoo for the USB sticks, and to Zend for another fine conference.

A few of my snaps are on flickr.
