Day one of the main conference is now over. In the next couple of minutes the Oracle installfest will begin. Speakers will have a speaker dinner at 20.30… the day was full packed with a lot of sessions, mainly targeting to PHP5, i18n and database clustering problems.
I had the chance to talk to a lot of people – the booths were very well attended. Thomas Weinert from Weaverslave had a lot of people standing around while he was presenting the new features in his IDE. Also the PEAR booth answered a lot of people questioning about the usage of the PEAR packages.
Toby also told me about the new PEAR installer 1.4 with the PEAR_Server feature which enables you to operate your own PEAR server with PEAR packages (and, better, to create your own package distribution for your own software). I hope they’ll get automatic updating mechanisms too :-) Tobias will tell about those nice features in a session tomorrow.
Fotos will follow soon …
