EclipseCon T minus 8... Receptions, receptions, receptions

Well, it's late day Friday, so you'll have to excuse me if my brain is wandering to the less mentally challenging parts of EclipseCon -- the receptions.

Sunday night Ian is hosting a blogger party at the Hyatt. Monday night is the members and committers reception. If you haven't already RSVP'd for either of those, please send a note to members.meeting at our domain.

Then the real fun starts. Tuesday night is the Exhibitor reception in the Exhibit hall. When the Exhibitor reception is over, be sure to head upstairs and check out Genuitec's reception. Last year none other than Sun net beans evangelist Tim Boudreau showed up at their reception, who will Genuitec have this year? Wednesday night is the Poster reception. Afterwards, head upstairs to the JAZZ BOF reception where you can meet Erich Gamma and John Weigand and the gang.

Last year Bjorn was big on process diagrams, so I've dug up one that I made that I still find particularly useful:

But seriously -- the receptions are one of the key parts of EclipseCon for one simple reason - networking. I can't think of a better way to explore new ideas, share pain points and find opportunities and walking and talking your way around an EclipseCon reception!
