In my scientific life I have been to a couple of conferences. Most of them were about Egyptology, as you can imagine. Important people speaking about recent archaeological excavations, presenting new theoretical work or showing off their newest corpora of papyri and other amazing stuff made by the Ancient Egyptians. Nothing is better than to visit such gatherings of scientists. This is the time and place to gain information about the current state of the art in your specific subject and to meet other people loving your favorite topics.
Today I have been to a developers conference – the Daho.am. Not much of an English name, but nonetheless very international: Bavarian. Let me give you a brief summary of this amazing event and my feelings about it.
