The big news this week was the excellent GR8Conf EU 2011 in København. Lots of great talks, information sharing, and beer. Many thanks to the guys from Gennemtænkt IT for organizing things. The two sessions I thought were the best were Hamlet D’Arcy’s Effective Groovy and Václav Pech’s on GPars. It was also cool to go to the Hackergarten since that’s something I’d like to do regularly here in Boston and wanted to get some ideas on how to run them. The sessions from Wednesday and Thursday were videotaped and should be on parleys.com soon.
