This was the best ODTUG conference that I have attended. Sessions were great, everywhere in Sheraton was crowded, lots of activity with full of new friends and networking opportunity. Board of Directors, speaker resources, maps, schedule builder and mobile applications (used both ios and android versions simultaneously without a problem), wi-fi connection and special events were fantastic, Sheraton New Orleans has been designed for this event.
But special thanks to RittmanMead for letting me go to this conference and supporting me.
As I have reached the hotel, it was the first thing for me to take some pictures of the great Mississippi River.
