DevCon 2002 , Orlando, FL (October 28, 2002)
DevCon 2002 was a blast! Day 1 general session reviewed where Macromedia is, and provided a sneak at future products (picture 1). Day 2 general session (pictures 2 and 3) featured the debut of Good Morning Developer starring hosts Tim Buntel and Eileen Stanley and lots of Macromedia up-and-coming entertainment industry stars (as well as a Coding Kitchen segment, and thus my chefs hat). There were sneak-peaks, lectures and hands-on workshops, parties (we had Universal Studios to ourselves Tuesday night, pictures 4 and 5), lots of networking and chatting, sponsors and exhibitors (picture 6, that's Robert Diamond of CFDJ in the center with me and Phil Costa, CF Product Manager), and even nightly karaoke sessions (thankfully no pictures of that). Our friends from Embraer in Brazil (bottom 2 pictures) presented me with my own plane! (It is sitting proudly on my office shelf). If you missed it make sure you don't repeat your mistake - next year we'll be in San Diego. See you there!
