A quick log of the events I visited/held/participated in to continuously get a better programmer in 2016.
Socrates is two full days of open-space, followed by one day of workshops, and I took another day of to rest.
Even more unprepared, spontaneous session proposals this year. Made taking part in two sessions per slot easier, but not necessarily as interesting.
Switching to a lottery based ticket system, brought in a bunch of new people and released a lot of load from ticket server (used to timeout at start of ticket sale).
I gave a talk about the git object database, again. This time a little bit more formal, some introduction slides and a 45-minute time frame (as usual in a conference setting). Still worked out great and was very well received.
Totally underestimated the networking effect of conferences. Met co-workers, fellow students, connected with Softwerkskammer Jena and so on.
