The last 2 days I was in Leogang, Austria at the Con-fess conference, where I had a great time. There were good sessions and speakers, and I met many nice people. Leogang is in the middle of nowhere, but that didn’t matter, because Hotel Krallerhof, the conference venue, had everything you could wish for. The Salzburg mountains are beautiful, and the weather was good all three days:

My favourite session was Better Presentations by Michael Plöd - although most presentations were good and the speaker lineup was quite impressive. It was nice to meet Ed Burns again! I also had the chance to talk to Kito Mann at dinner and between the sessions. And I finally met Thomas Einwaller who lives and works in the same city as I do.

My session: Apache Wicket and AJAX

My session went quite well although I think there are a couple of things I could improve for the next time. The whole conference was recorded, so as soon as the video is online I will link it here. I have already uploaded my slides an the code examples from my talk, you can download them right here:
