UKUUG Spring Conference

Friday 4th April 2008

The Spring Conference (held at the Birmingham Conservatoire) was a lot of fun. The day before the conference proper, there were three tutorials (John Pinner on Python, Dave Cross on Perl, and Peter Hansteen on PF - the BSD packet filter).

There was a very good programme of talks on Tuesday and Wednesday. Highlights for me included Geriant North's Transitive talk, Randy Appleton's talk on Linux performance over the years, and Russell Winders' programming language comparison.

The venue was civilised and comfortable, and the general impression was that everyone had a good time, including the evening dinner sponsored by Google.

A longer write-up will appear in the next UKUUG Newsletter.
