Hotsos 2009 – Final Words and Farewell

The symposium has finished. It was a great day with nice presentations from Robyn Sands, Chen Shapira, Dan Norris, Jonathan Lewis and a farewell and thank you speech from Gary Goodman. There are some lucky people who will attend tomorrow the training day with Jonathan Lewis. I will have to do some shopping for my family… Also important stuff to do.

Here is my last attempt to make an overview off that final day, with some final words from Mr. Chris Date about XML…

    Thank you Mr. Video Reporter. It was almost like being there …

    Its actually getting hard after a time, because you start to think: “OK, what happened today, how do I show it and do people want to see Tanel for the third time in a movie, would they like it”.

    On the other hand there is the issue of privacy… Something I am, as a DBA, very with, conscious, off and another issue is that I as a non-native speaker am not always “aware” off what the lyrics in the music are telling us and if it doesn’t send the wrong message going along with the music.

    Very nice video I thought.

    It was, as always, a pleasure to cross paths with you again. It was also unfortunate that a number of folks (like Doug) were not able to be there for this year’s symposium.
