CUSEC 2009

I just attended the CUSEC 2009 conference in Montreal last week(end) and it was incredible. Between the speakers' stories, the crazy evening parties, and meeting so many awesome people, there was little to complain about.

Speakers included Leah Culver of um, fame?, Dan Ingalls (best known for his work on Smalltalk), and Richard Stallman who shouldn't need much of an introduction. Each speaker added a different flavour to the conference and despite their diverse backgrounds, they all showed a genuine passion for their work. It's impossible to be in such company and not get fired up.

The only downside was the insane focus on web technologies, but I suppose I'll just have to find a systems conference in the area...
