I'm at the Microsoft PDC Conference in LA today. This is my first trip as an evangelist, and I made the rookie mistake of booking the trip through the company travel portal instead of booking it myself, so I ended up stuck with a flight from San Jose to Orange County instead of to LAX which is much closer. The drive wasn't that bad, but having to drive extra in LA is never fun. LA used to look wildly different and weird to me, but now most of it looks the same as parts of the Bay Area to me.
I'm working in the eBay Developers Program booth today, Wednesday, and Thursday, so if you are at the conference stop by and say hi. I got to meet Sergey Dmitriev, CEO of JetBrains, who make my favorite piece of software -- the IntelliJ IDEA Java IDE.
