I've been in Omaha for the last couple days at the Heartland Developers Conference. It was a great opportunity to catch up with a bunch of people.
It was nice to see Jeff Brand again. With his new responsibilites at Microsoft, Jeff doesn't make it down to Des Moines to hang out.
I also ran into Dru Sellers. I first met Dru a couple weeks earlier at Tulsa Tech Fest. Dru does PodcastStudio.net with Jeff Julian. Thursday afternoon after our presentation, Nick Parker and I sat down and did our first podcast with them. It will be released sometime over the next few months. It was a good interview and Dru and Jeff did a great job at keeping the conversation flowing.
We had a good time Thursday night after the first day of sessions. Nick Parker, Matt Ring, Mike Vesey, Ken Sherman, Dave Havenridge, Phil Stanislav, and Matt Milner had dinner at Omaha Prime in the Old Market. The steaks were great, but I'm still searching for a shrimp cocktail that compares to St. Elmo's in Indianapolis, IN.
It was fun and I can't wait to do it again next year!
