OOoCon 2007 Trip: Wednesday - Friday

Wednesday officially started the conference, with a talk by Louis Suárez-Potts.

Then were some excellent presentations on the Aqua port of OpenOffice.org, a meetup at the hotel Tuesday night with the Aqua port folks, and Tapas for dinner. Tapas are like appetizers; many restaurants I go to have a "choose 3 appetizers for one price" deal. Tapas are like a la carte appetizer-sized dishes, allowing for a wide variety of foods to be sampled.

Dinner

Thursday brought chatting with Niklas Nebel, one of Sun's Calc programmers, the Chart2 overview, and OpenGL transitions. The OpenGL presentation mentioned a desire to create a UI that "mere mortals" can use to create new transitions. I wish them luck in this -- it's very difficult to create a UI that non-experts can use that won't enflame the experts (insert Gnome vs. KDE flame war here as a perfect example).

Friday had a wonderful set of presentations on source code managers, which I discussed earlier. For dinner I was supposted to meet up with Michael Meeks, and sadly got lost instead. Apparently we were on the same road (Catalunya), but since said road is very long I'm not surprised that Shaun and I couldn't find him and his entourage with 30 minutes of walking...
