Since I returned home from my extended trip to Germany, it's been 
a slog trying to ramp back up into my usual routine. It was a 
week before I could find any words at all for a retrospective on 
the conference, and it very nearly took another week to get the 
post in readable form. I'm still not at peak productivity, but 
I'm getting there. I've got a couple of guest posts lined up 
(including one from Walter) and I should be getting the Twitter & 
FB feeds going again soon.

In the meantime, here's what DConf 2018 was like from my 
perspective.

Only the Vang's picture shows for me. All the others show the "no entry"

Actually Vang Le's picture shows in Chrome but not in Firefox for me. Maybe it's because of the file extension: .jpg_large Arredondo.

I somehow got here finally. There is a belief among Vietnamese people that when someone think and talk about you, you will sneeze ;D Mike: Your MC job was terrific. I actually noted to myself that “this guy can deliver a smooth public speaking”. Another good things is your perfect enforcement of time constraint on speakers. It’s only in some rare cases that speaking over time is interesting and desireable to the audience. The parts of ‘forgetting some think you wanted to say’ is true to me as well. I’ve learnt to accept the imperfection. And (paraphrase the A/V part) “not too stressful but pay attentions to the trouble so you don’t repeat it” resonates well with me. Thank you all for a wonderful conference. It’s true that I got a group of talents came to help with bioinformatics in the hackathon. That’s my “best Dconf moment”. I have a group photo of almost of them in the slack “bio-general” channel in dlang Slack channel. I’ve created three bio-* channels in the Slack to continue and coordinate work of D and bioinformatics. All are very welcome to join and contribute. There is a github group https://github.com/bioslaD as well. Just drop me an email to biocyberman at gmail.com if you can join the Slack or the github organization yourself.

Might be interesting (perhaps next year) to do a post-mortem for the Hackathon where each participant writes one or two sentences on what they accomplished. You can then aggregate together into a blog post.

There was a small "presentation" where people could show what they had accomplished during the hackathon, which gives a rough estimation of what you are looking for. It was a google doc, but I have no idea where it is now. -Steve

Yep that's it, the first part was where we added our names to show what we did. I guess reading it now, it looks a lot less informative than I thought :) -Steve

Thanks for the post. A link that tries to point to Igor's talk

I probably wouldn't have attended my first DConf had it not been for your blog posts on writing bindings for C libraries, and thus probably wouldn't have attended the subsequent ones either, so it was great to meet you finally! If it's any consolation I also had an embarrassing train story on the way the conf ... Like you I also wasn't sure if I'd got on the right train from the airport so I asked some poor wee guy in my 'best' German if the train was going to Daglfing. Unfortunately Scots with bad German basically just sound like drunk Germans. I think he was just about to surrender his wallet when an elderly couple nearby chimed in with 'yes it is!!!', so face was saved in the end. All's well that ends well! Cheers, A.

It was very nice to meet all of you at DConf! Finally putting a face on names I would see for years in this community. Talks were all interesting, my fav was probably the one about std.xml because of how Johnathan explained his thought process in detail.

Thanks. This better utilizes the screen space on mobile[1]. Much easier to read than the previous posts[2] where the D logo hogged the screen. [1] https://imgur.com/a/c2jkSyq [2] https://imgur.com/jkJ8IFc
