I finally got around to getting a few pictures I took during my time at GLOC uploaded so I thought I would share.
First, the hotel that the conference had a discount for was the Hyatt Regency Cleveland at The Arcade. Now, typically I don’t care much about what hotel I stay in, but this one was awesome. The Arcade was one of the first indoor shopping malls in the US, opening in 1890. It really is an impressive building for being so old, and the Hyatt did a good job of integrating the hotel without taking away from the buildings appeal.
I also managed to get some pictures during the speakers dinner the night before the conference. Here I am with Chris Date:
And myself with Craig Shallahamer:
Finally a couple shots I took of the room as I was getting ready to present:
It ended up getting about 20 more people, so was a lot more crowded than I expected. Also, note Carlos Sierra and Abel Macias sitting at the front table in the 2nd picture. They were joined by Kyle Hailey before I got started as well. So that was enough to make me a little nervous, but the good news is that I knew if I said something incorrect, I had the right people there to correct me!
Again, a great event and thanks again to everyone at NEOOUG for making it such a success.
