Moscone Center was surrounded with street signs and people holding signs that pointed to the various designated areas.
The general session that kicked off was broadcasted live on the internet, as one of the speakers informed us.
Also I attended a session by Zend about their framework and how they are planning to implement Comet applications. I use the word “planning” because from what I understood they don’t actually have any concrete plans. For example the speaker talked about a Comet server implementation in C that a PHP app would use through CLI, but when I approached him with the question if this would be given out as a PECL module or about the licensing, he couldn’t disclose any information. Anyway, since more than 50% of web apps are made in PHP, I’d like this community to overcome the challenges that the Comet paradigm brings and do it in a timely fashion.
I still have a couple of sessions that I would like to attend and I’ll go back to the hotel to rest since I still haven’t gotten over the jetlag and tomorrow JavaOne opens. This means dozens of great sessions and even more parties 🙂
Having a pet dog I really-really enjoyed the fact that there are people inside Moscone that (are allowed to) go around with their dogs. Actually I’ve read that one out of two SF residents has dog. Two thumbs up people!
