The things I enjoyed about this year’s open space conference.
- Just the enthusiasm and the luck of the draw about being there again.
- It was heart warming and uplifting to be part of the action
- Meeting this year’s new people
- Getting reacquainted with the previous JPR11 attendees
- Diane Marsh’s Scala Koans
- Sitting on Bruce Eckel’s easy massaging chair again and meeting Bruce again
- Making a video recording of the closing session
- Having the time to make screen cast of JavaFX 2.0 EA
- Kate Ice House
- The Progressive Dinner
- Doing a Technical Leadership session
- 4 half days snowboarding
The things I regret about JPR11
- I did not meet and greet every single individual
- Missing the Make It Fast technical session
- Missing my own Future of Client Java session
- Not getting the Saturday flight for an extra snowboarding Sunday
- Not knowing if I can make it back next year, and not having that ideal Job / Position

So heart warming. Thank you all participants at the Java Posse Round Up 2011. Everyone was great there. My heart swells with pride. It was an unbelievable and unmissable.
