The symposium panel Thursday went off pretty well. A much smaller crowd than at the other talks, but it was late in the program and people were starting heading home. It’s not easy to compete with lunch, either.
Not a lot of controversy on the panel, we were mostly talking about futures in our different areas of interest. There were some really good questions from the audience, including some challenging the wisdom of message-passing.
Then, it was time to head home. PDC felt like a success, and I personally was really encouraged by all the interest in our technologies. It was really nice to see how much interest there still is in our investments into native code and C++.
