ApacheCon was a lot more fun than I had expected. Lots of people to meet and see again, it was great. Having half the talks be about java-something limits the selection a bit for me, but there were quite a few httpd or general "web stuff" talks that were fun. My talk was in one of the big rooms and it was pretty packed, thanks for coming everyone! :-) The questions I got at the end of the talk and in the hallway were all relevant and clueful, so that was a good sign. I had a lot of material and the talk is mostly about concepts so I was worried that it went by a bit too fast.
We went to Michael Radwin's HTTP Caching talk afterwards and it had some very good advice, go read the slides! There wasn't much I didn't know already, but being reminded that any cookies in the domain often will ruin caching was good.
Driving home only took about 4 hours, yay for weekday traffic through the desert.
