IBM WebSphere Portal Technical Conference

Last week, I found the time to drive over to the Portal Technical Conference. Not being a Portal enthusiast, I didn't know what to expect.

I was happy to find that it was a good little conference full of great speakers and interesting content. The size is much smaller than that of Lotusphere and probably on par or a little above what you find at a View or Advisor Summit.

It's always nice to know people beyond their web sites or online personas and validate that they are not robots. Chris Blatnik and Ted Stanton are not robots. Actually, I was surprised by how many people I knew there. Had I known, I would have done more than sneak in for a few cups of coffee and finger foods at the expo.
