This was my second time at Oredev, which takes place in Malmo, Sweden. It’s an exceptionally good conference. Lots of great content and fun speaker activities. After a long flight from SFO, I wasn’t up for jumping naked into the Baltic with a lot of strangers, but I enjoyed the city tour (pictures below) and the speakers dinner in the city hall. I also had an excellent dinner, which included spicy Goose blood soup (tasted like ginger bread), with Cecilia, Klara and Marcus.
Interesting sessions at the conference included:
- Managing Asynchronicity with RQ by Douglas Crockford
- Building End to End Web App Using TypeScript by Gil Fink
- Go Beyond “Debug”: Wire Tap your App for Knowledge with Hadoop by Oleg Zhurakousky
There was also the thought provoking (unlike any other) keynote by Anna Beatrice Scott.
There were a lot more sessions that I wanted to listen to but after the first day I had fly to Casablanca, Morocco for JMagreb 2013.
