and maintainer of:
The SPW is over. I had planned to write daily updates on the progress of the SPW day by day, but the workshop acutally took up more time than I expected, but know I am 'back' - well I have the time to write in my journal again, so I might aswell reflect a bit on the just finished SPW.
The SPW went better than I had dared hoped for. The turn-up was amazing with about 71 regitrants (including speakers). The speakers did a marvellous job and the workshop had a high technical standard.
There are many things we need to do differently and the feedback from speakers and attendees have been great - both good and bad but very constructive.
I have had a few ideas for a few new modules so I have to get started on these.
Thanks to all the people and speakers who participated in the SPW - you made all the hard work worthwhile...
