I had the good fortune to attend the Code4Lib 2015 conference in Portland OR last week.  It was a great event as usual, but it’s an event that I don’t always get to attend in person.  Does anyone else go through these five stages during the conference?  Right, me neither.

  1. I’m very familiar with all current technologies, but let’s see what others are up to.
  2. Oh, wait, it turns out that I don’t know anything and don’t belong here.
  3. Then again, I understood that last presentation and could totally do what they did.
  4. So now I need to throw out all my code and rewrite my apps using that framework I just heard about for the first time.
  5. I’m heading over to the Multnomah Whisk{e}y Library, anybody else interested?
