The journey to Portland has begun. The cross country flight is a bit long, but it will give me a chance to get going on a Cap2 version of the RM gem. I’m killing a few hours in the Atlanta airport after the short flight from Savannah.
In addition to the reception, everyone is invited to join us for lunch, dinner, drinks, hackfests, and other impromptu events. I encourage you to utilize the Campfire room to connect with us and other Machinists. If you don’t have an account, request one and I’ll invite you.
On Saturday, don’t oversleep and miss my session at 10:45am about virtual clusters.
If “free food and beer” wasn’t enough to get you to the reception, the menu includes fruit, cheese, cedar plank salmon, deviled eggs with caviar, pork loin, and roast turkey. There will also be a few kegs of Bridgeport ale to wash it all down. If you’re lucky, you might walk away with an iPod Nano, an iced-out RAILS goblet, or some free hosting. Remember, if you are not a customer, you will need a ticket as space is limited for non-customers. Find me (or my wife) during the conference for your ticket.
