Weekly Wrap: October 19, 2012

Weekly Wrap Image This week’s Weekly Wrap is a special EECI conference edition. On Sunday, almost 200 people converged on Horseshoe Bay, Texas (outside of Austin) and its beautiful hill country surroundings. The main conference took place on Monday and Tuesday and each day was filled with talks and presentations from the community. There were two tracks: main and developer. Throughout both days attendees had to make a tough choice between talks in the same time slot. I know I missed some I wanted to see. If anything, that’s a sign of a conference filled with great content.

It was great to see everyone again and meet a bunch of new people, too. When and where the next EECI will be we don’t know but I’m sure someone will step up to keep an annual EE conference going.
