PDC first impressions
I got here at 8:15 in the morning and there were a number of people around. The registration process went on smoothly except for a small glitch in the software: my last name is Sánchez, with a tilde in the a and that was too much for the registration software, but after a while the ladies at the desk figured it out and everything went OK. Now I've got my official PDC bag and shirt. The bag was full with the usual CDs and propaganda (but no Whidbey or Longhorn bits until tomorrow, sorry) and a heavy copy of Writing Secure Code 2nd Edition. Perhaps tellingly, the only big line here was at the Starbucks station. Commnet is working just right, there are 40 or 50 people in the room and probably more using wireless outside and now I have an hour or so to make up my mind about whether I shell out the almost $200 extra to get to the pre-conference sessions. Back to you when I have something more useful to report.
