I'm feeling lazy and hence instead of putting a blog post decided to
share my musings on the mailing list . Due to some stuff to do, was
able to come and attend in the afternoon. I was able to see only three
a. Soumya Deb/Debloper's take on 16 sins a webmaster shouldn't do (all
to do how URI's/URL's should be) . I know there was a fancy term for
the whole thing but the fact was it was as said above. While I do
disagree on some of the points he made as well as him not being able
to be clear
b. Answesh's short and sweet presentation on 'about:config' . While I
have done all the tweaks years before that he outlined yesterday, I
was looking for some more depth and it would have been interesting to
pick his brain on some things but guess that's for another day.
c. Sayak and Soumya's partner presentation about community and the hg
and github codebases. I wish they had gone a bit more in the depth as
Soumya did show a patch which he had put sometime ago and the
discussions around it but just showed it. Wish he had spent sometime
and people came to know the deliberations or/and arguments that goes
in sometimes. I guess they were too tired as all of them had been busy
since morning networking, sharing etc.
One thing I noticed was lot of tweeting and facebooking happening
during the sessions, I don't wanna delve whether that is/was good or
bad just that it was happening.
That's all for now, sorry no pics. All the actors (means speakers) as
well as loads of participants clicked pictures so I'm sure in a day or
two there would be an album or two on the net somewhere.
Looking forward to various presentations (pdf's or .odp's either on
the mailing list or some centralized localization.)
That's all for now.
