I’m about to head to Narita to fly back to the U.S. MAX 2004 Tokyo was an incredible event, thousands of attendees (even more than at MAX in the U.S.) and two days of sessions, presentations, shop talk, and of course bars (including one at which I was hit on by a rather drunk non-English speaking guy, fun stuff!). I gave two presentations, one on running multiple instances of ColdFusion on top of J2EE, and one on Web Services. On the first night of MAX we hosted a ColdFusion User Group presentation. A panel comprised of Brandon Purcell, John Dowdell, and myself answered questions for over two hours, and we were amazed at the interactivity (which usually does not occur when there is a language barrier). Pictures (only one for now, I’ll post more when I get them) are at http://www.forta.com/about/theroad.cfm?trip_id=73. Once again, Tokyo does not disappoint. I’ll be back.
