I’ve seen the future of conferences. And it runs my code!
I had an amazing experience recently. I went to the first OpenSimulator Community Conference, which I helped organize. “Went” is not quite right, but it’s not wrong either.

I was an organizer, a speaker and a participant, and I felt myself in those roles just as strongly as I did in other conferences I helped organize.
