YAPC::Europe 2007 day 1

[ #34249 ]

Yesterday there was the pre conf meeting. We anticipated 50 people coming, but there were at least 100 (if not 150). So the service was a bit slow, but I think everybody got beer & meat. See for video.

Today started very stressy, because we had to set up the registration desk, while people started queueing. Plus, I had to finish slides for my (crappy) opening speech.

After the inital onslaught, things got easier for us, but I still did not manage to see a single talk. A spend a few seconds in each, for video coverage, though. I met a lot of old friends and had some nice chats.

I'm very tired already, but there's a pub crawl scheduled for tonight. Well, that's what YAPCs are about, massiv multiplayer sleep deprivation / alcohol abuse experiments

Currently, there are 333 people registered. Wow!

  • I think ( and I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong ) that it was Karen who advised us brummies "Don't expect to see a talk, and don't try to do one" - it helped me set my expectations at an appropriate level. In the end I think I managed to see two talks in total last year.

    I hope you manage to catch a few, and many congratulations to all the team on what so far is an excellent conference.
