I went to the rOOts 2003 conference this year. As always, it was a great convention. ROOTS draws a fairly small, yet advanced audience. A recurring theme this year seems to be agile development. It also seems like all the speakers concluded with the fact that “everything was better in the good old days” (more or less). This seems to be a sign of the times, and was also reflected in Alan Kay’s keynote at the O’Reilly Emercing Technology conference.
I will blog a transcript from some of the speakers at day one, as soon as I clean it up. Stay tuned.
