COMMON’s fall conference and expo in San Antonio was the first of its kind, and a first for me as well. It marked my debut as a speaker for COMMON, as I presented three sessions about PHP on IBM i.
The conference brought the Power Systems and IBM i community together for learning and networking. I met many great people and caught up with industry friends.
After each day’s information-packed sessions, we gathered to relax and socialize.
A social highlight for me was the “Power Down” evening on Tuesday, October 5. The organizers had set up the Wii “Rock Band” game. This photo shows me on “drums,” Rich Nemerovsky singing, and Brian May playing “guitar.” I think Brian can actually play.
