The Basho team including Tom Santero @tsantero, Shanley Kane @shanley, and others rocked putting things together and getting everything to us attendees and making sure we headed off like herded cats in appropriate paths to the sessions. Great job! You guys rocked it!

All of this hard work setup for a great conference experience with content and more (see my previous blog entry for more). But I digress, on to more pictures. To the right Mark Phillips @pharkmillups kicking off the conference. Below is Don Rippert @djrippert giving an intro, where he pointed out a very important notion, “…this big movement isn’t about cloud or nosql, the movement is about distributed systems…”.

George & James, when not at baseball games or thrashing some guitar do some distributed computing system things over at Enstratus. Both of these guys write some seriously solid material, so hit the google and do a search on these guys, then read their books & articles. Cheers guys, good to catch up!
