I’m sitting in the RT symposium and it’s a nice group. It’s not too crowded. Unfortunately, there weren’t many position papers. I think that’s a bad. Putting together a position paper is not too much work. Everybody attending a symposium should do so.
Anyway, the agenda that Jeff, Martin and Heiko came up with is great. Based on some questions they asked before the symposium they defined topics and also attached time slots to it. At the end, there will be a fishbowl. I don’t know what that is but Jeff’s description sounded interesting.
The crowd is mixed. There are people from many different countries and companies and I heard one guy saying Microsoft. It’s also great to see a lot new faces which actually means that the topic is really attracting new people. 🙂
