I have now created my preliminary schedule for Connect 2014. There are two only sessions that collide (on Tuesday), and I have not been able to find any repeats for them. That is how often has been at Lotusphere, but I would say that in the later years, the collisions have been fewer and fewer, thanks to more repeats and (perhaps) smarter scheduling.
Monday afternoon is when I have set time aside to visit the showcase and the labs. I also have a little bit of time after lunch Wednesday. As I mentioned in a previous post, I like to set aside plenty of time to visit the showcase and the labs, that is not something you want to rush between two sessions. The labs close at noon on Thursday, so the staff can attend the “Ask the developers” session later that afternoon.
I still haven’t figured out when to visit the certification labs. Remember, this year you get free certification tests! There is also a prep lab where you can do study for the test and do test exams.
In the evenings you will probably find me at Kimonos, in one of the Swan courtyards, at the Dolphin bar or the fountain, or perhaps somewhere around the pools. If you see me, don’t be shy, come say hello to me!
