NCDevCon, Cast, Crew, TacFUG - You Rock!

I had a great two days at NCDevCon. I had two goals for myself at this conference.  One, was "a funny thing happened on the way to looking for jobs, I ran into a conference".  And, cram as much knowledge into my head over a weekend as possible. 

On the second point, I'd say mission accomplished.  Looking up information on mobile dev online is great, but it's beyond compare when someone else does all this hard slogging for you and packages it up in a fifty minute presentation.  It appears that I need to give Air/Flex some serious consideration if I want to do cross platform support.

On the first point, well... I showed up.  I'm not really able to socialize with my fellow man.  At least, not until they get to know me after a few weeks.  It's a shortcoming I've had for as long as I can remember, and it's just life being on the spectrum (Autism, that is).  That's why I've been so pleased to partner with Metorsite over the years.  They guys that run it are the consumate sales guys, leaving me to do what I know best - the Tech Guy (tm).

It was great to meet Ben Nadel and Ray Camden.  As mentioned above, I'm just not much of a socializer, so a handshake and a "thanks" is about as far as my conversations usually go.

I'm pretty CFML engine agnostic anymore, and I realize that Adobe is a major sponsor, but I wonder if Railo has any place for next years NCDevCon?  I'll forward that thought on to TacFUG, and I guess we'll see.

Phillip Senn's Gravatar I think that programmers are programmers because they've seen at some point that they can talk to a computer easier than they can talk to people. I've read some books on networking and am now reading "Never eat alone". Pretty good advice from someone that's done it wrong and has fine tuned what they do to where it's more right than wrong now. Teachers find that the face-to-face social awkward people communicate better online. D'uh!

Matthew Williams's Gravatar Aye, that describes me. I find that I'd rather use an IM, forum post, twitter, (last resort) email to communicate with most folks.
