Reviving the Sally/HALO/Foodie dinner during ApacheCon ... what initially started as a late-running reception in Orlando became a series of late-night dinners for twelve+ at Nobu/Vegas, evolved into a fun ten-top in San Diego, and most recently, a wonderfully lavish 9-course tasting menu in Atlanta. If there’s interest this April/Amsterdam, I’m thinking about doing something at Restaurant De Kas. Yes, it’s a bit out of the way, but seems worth it... [read more]
Go submit your CFP's for ApacheCon US 2008, this November in New Orleans! We have a very short CFP period this year, so go do it now. Don't be late - we really can't extend the CFP this time like some folks seem to think we will... 8-)
looking forward to Amsterdam ... :)

Is anyone else taking the luxury option of travelling UK-NL by ferry? I gave it a try last year, and was so happy with it that this year I insisted on it! Details at http://bahumbug.wordpress.com/2008/03/29/apachecon-for-brits/  at budget price, too:-)

Do any locals want to contribute some maps of recommended Amsterdam places? I'd love to see someone's tips for the best sights to see and places to have dinner, especially on one of the nicely interactive maps that many sites support now - I still prefer google, but that's just me. The main website includes a basic link to S.P.'s guide to Amsterdam, but a map would be nice too.
Hello all (signed up thus far!) Trying to figure out how to "start a conversation" ... no doubt someone will do this; it just seems a bit non-intuitive ... have been poking around the site, but can't find the easy (and, no doubt, wholly obvious) route. We'll chat soon, I'm sure. See y'all next month!
