Many people have already written a lot about this year’s ESUG conference in Brest and the ESUG Innovation Technology Awards. You surely already know about the winners, saw the videos of their presentation and of ceremony on the boat.
What I want to add to the discussion is what I found to be a field of improvement for next year’s ESUG conference at Barcelona.
I found the room to be totally overcrowded and way too loud to understand anything from the presentations. If you weren’t sitting next to the presenter you didn’t understand anything. Being not the youngest Smalltalker on earth, I could hardly understand anything if I stood directly behind a presenter.
So if ever possible, try to find a setting in which a maximum of three applications are presented in one room. It’s good to have all presentations at the same time, but it’s not good having 150 People in one room trying to discuss 20 different applications all at the same time…
