The sessions at these conferences are always interesting, and I always learn stuff, but the best part is always talking to People. Many people come to these conferences with a list of problems that need solving, and they’re on a mission to find someone Smart and Fix It. I love seeing little clusters of people going through this stuff and Fixing Things. The joy and peace that comes from getting something resolved is amazing.
I typically find myself on both ends of this. I have my own list, and I find people I can help. It’s a party.
