The ninth ESWC
Remember a group called "Beatles" and their song "Revolution Number 9"? Well, MicroISVs do not stage revolutions but we initiate evolution. And as we all know evolution is this magic thing of development to the better. That fits, doesn`t it? So Berlin was the scene and stage of a special show of strength and unity in our software industry despite the odds of revolving and revolting (!) financial markets. With many participants we were well and prepared to enjoy a great variety of sessions and to encounter many known and new faces from places as remote as San Francisco and Moscow. Europe became the anchor and the harbor of our European Software Conference but we were happy to achieve that Berlin and the ESWC 2009 were witnessing a truely worldwide representation of human ingenuity. Open all senses! fulfilled its meaning and we all are an active part of this ongoing revolutionary evolution of the senses and of the mind. The innovative concept of the ESWC to include future trends has proven to be the right path. Our keyspeaker Sam Ramji President of the Codeplex Foundation and Mark Stone showed that the advancing software industry is reaching out to all members of the developing family including the Open Source community to find models that suit both sides. Sessions and speakers were excellent with new topics and speakers. Berliner Weißes (Beer) at the Alt-Berlin was a blast and Emsisoft`s Christian with its brilliant product a-squared Anti-Malware rightfully enthusiastical about his Epsilon Award 2009.
Thank you so much to all participants and sponsors.
